Customizing the 'Drifting' Behavior

I need help with customizing an animation. There's a PNG file on my timeline that I resized to pictogram size. I want it to fly in, stop for a moment and then fly out. I have managed to accomplish all of this except the pictogram does a little somersault when leaving the screen. The Camtasia Behavior I am using is called Drifting. No matter how I change Movement property on the Out tab, it always does exactly the same. This property does not seem to affect the animation at all. I want it to fly from the middle of the screen to the upper right corner in a straight line. What am I missing here? Thanks for your help!

Instead of using a behavior on the out movement,  you could use a regular animation.  You can accomplish this by setting the out-behavior to none, then drag a custom animation to your png file, set the marker at the out point, and move the png to the position you want it in the canvas area. 

I hope that makes sense :)

Thanks Peter! I am new to Camtasia so I need to look into this, but I am sure it makes sense. :) For now, I have only set the out-behavior to none, which means the PNG stays where it is until the intro screen fades out.
