Description Eyal Rozenberg 2021-06-11 21:59:05 UTC
Adding custom animations is a hassle. Some if it is inherent - some of it is due to various bugs. Features to make it more convenient, and specifically more speedy, are welcome.

Specifically, if I've configured a custom effect, I might want to apply the exact same effect to another object. If I have that object selected, I would like to be able, when right-clicking an existing effect, to have a menu option for applying the same animation effect to my focused object.

What's "the same effect"? Do you mean the previous applied effect with its options?

No, I mean the effect on which I've right-button-clicked, within the animations sidebar. Remember that clicking/focusing an effect on the list does not unfocus the currently selected slide element.

This particular context menu idea is a tiny aspect of your copy/paste request in bug 142825. You describe a precise implementation whereas a more generic solution with styles is considered on bug 88938. I recommend to keep the discussion on one ticket.

No, it isn't. bug 142825 is about copying objects on the slide. This bug is about an existing object, and an existing effect. Even if you thought of it as "copy animation effect to currently focused object", it would still not be an aspect of my request in 142825 - where effects and objects are copied together. This is about their separate handling.

Now, bug 88938 is yet another kettle of fish. Of course it is related, but it is neither a generalization nor a special case of this bug nor of 142825. Why? Because it doesn't regard copying and pasting animation effects, but rather their _styles_. That is, if it implemented, and you have a few effects in your list, with one having a start delay of 0.5 sec and the others of 2, and you copy-pasted that effect's style to the others, you would not get new animation effects; you would have the same effects with a different start delay. Both this bug and bug 142825 are about creating new animation effects.
