Marker shapes are generally used as animated highlighters in animated HelpXplain infographics. They use the Outline animation by default, which makes them appear as if they were being drawn on the screen.

Inserting markers

Markers are inserted from the Shapes menu in the Home tab, just like any other shapes.


Configuring markers

Markers are outline shapes, just like regular shapes and lines. You can configure their color and thickness in the Outline section in the Properties pane on the right. Select the marker you want to configure first before accessing the settings.

Configuring marker animation

Select the marker and then configure its animation settings in the Animations tab. See Animating Slide Content for details.
