I want to animate a call out box to grow from the bottom only

Hi,

I want to animate a rectangle callout so that it shows for a few seconds and then adds an animation effect where only the bottom of the rectangle stretches down. This does work, kind of, as the effect causes the top of the rectangle to momentarily expand slightly as well. Is there a way to lock the top from moving and only get the bottom of the rectangle to stretch?

You need to set animation"Easing" to "Linear" Right Click the animation arrow.
Then, under Enable Easing..... select "Linear"

I deleted my previous post because I tracked down the source of the behavior.

If you have easing set to "Auto" that's the only time I see the problem occurring. So it looks like you can chose any of the settings if desired.This may be a bug.
