"For the timing, make sure the first "Text Highlighting" animation entry has a "Start" field of "On Click". The second "Text Highlighting" animation (the text motion path), should "Start" using "With Previous".

"Now when you view the slide show, the first mouse click will start the detail graphic fade in and expansion effect, while the second mouse click will fade in, zoom and move the text. You can make them all happen at the same time by assigning "With Previous" to all the "Start" fields. You can also add a 35mm slide effect to the detail graphic object. Highlight the graphic, then right click and select the line menu item. Set the line "Style" to "Continuous", the "Color" to "White", the "Width" to "0.30" and the "Corner Style" to "Rounded". This will put a nice thick border around the graphic."
