REQUEST: Please consider adding the ability to animate a curve, line, arrow,

etc. being drawn on a slide from one end to the other at a selected speed.

Currently, one must create the curve in multiple segments and use the wipe

animation to get a crude approximation of this effect. It should be a simple

thing to have the object drawn in an animation at a selected rate from the

beginning of the line to end.

Thank you.

    • This would also be very useful when animating line charts.
