Working with Animations
With the Animation panel (New!), you can import any custom motion presets from XML created in Flash or InDesign, or save your own in InDesign. If you want to share your motion presets with other InDesign users, you can save them as an XML file, which they can in turn import. After you import, save, or duplicate motion presets, you can delete the ones you don’t want. After you apply a motion preset to an object, you can change the motion path with the Direct Selection tool or Pen tool just like any other path in InDesign.

- Click the Window menu, point to Interactive, and then click Animation.

Delete Motion Presets. Click the Options menu, click Manage Presets, select a preset, and then click Delete.
Duplicate Motion Presets. Click the Options menu, click Manage Presets, select a preset, and then click Duplicate.
Save Motion Presets as XML. Click the Options menu, click Manage Presets, select a preset, click Save As, type a name, specify a location, and then click Save.
Import Motion Presets as XML. Click the Options menu, click Manage Presets, click Load, and then double-click the XML file you want.
