Motion Path Tools Add-in

The motion path end position tool has been merged into this new motion path tools add-in which will now feature all future additions made to it. This freeware add-in features the following handy tools:

1. Motion Path End Position: It will create duplicate shapes at the position where each of the selected motion path animation ends. Using this tool you can quickly determine the end position of the animation at design time.

2. Align/Join Motion Paths: This tool can align the selected motion path assigned to a shape end to end. It can also consolidate the individual segments of motion to create a single continuous path.

If you use my free addins, and are happy with it, consider donating. Donations help keep the new add-ins, updates coming and help pay for the time spent maintaining and improving the software. Donations are entirely voluntary. But every donation is greatly appreciated.
