Description Max 2018-12-28 16:09:49 UTC
Sorry for my English.

When I select an object and press (+) "Add effect" button, by default sets Entrance->Appear effect.
Is there (if not, this could be an enhancement) a way to change to Entrance-> "Peek in" by default? because I need to applied this to several object. 
It´s kind tedious to select object, add effect, (setted to Entrance->Appear) scroll down, and changed to "peek in" when i have 24 slides an each one has more than 10 object. 
Thanks for reading.

Actual Results:
Add effect: Entrance->Appear

Expected Results:
Add effect: Entrance-> Peek in

Reproducible: Didn't try

User Profile Reset: No

OpenGL enabled: Yes

Would change the request to 'remember the last chosen animation'. Alternatively we could provide a Copy Animation feature (bug 88938). There is also bug 88228 requesting a "style" for animations (rather store the last used properties).

Thanks for you comments, I changed the request to 'remember the last chosen animation'.
That's I meant to say. 
Also I found https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=65331 very useful to me, I changed de xml file and it worked. I think that both of this enhancements could be great for a large amount of slides.

So let's ask the dev(s) if that is an easyhack.

Thanks, I don't know how it works. I'll wait.

It should have been fixed by this commit:
