The custom animation effect to grow or shrink images is STILL missing in the drop-down menu (goes back to 2006)
Steps to reproduce:
Cannot be reproduced since the menu entry is missing.
No behaviour - which IS the bug
Customizable animation to resize image in a presentation
Platform (if different from the browser): ALL
Can you please link to the original Openoffice bug report?
Otherwise, it is pretty hard to guess exactly what you want and if anyone has already worked on this feature.
(Openoffice's bugzilla now resides at: https://issues.apache.org/ooo/ )
Resolving as invalid – we have no way to reach out to the person opening this (trash-mail.com deletes all mail received after a few hours and does not have user accounts).
If you know what this is about, please reopen with a bug number from Openoffice.
Reopening this bug as I am running into the same issue as the original reporter.
In LibreOffice Impress, there should be a custom animation under the Emphasis category for Grow/Shrink.
Others have confirmed that this feature does exist in Impress. If you import a PowerPoint project that uses this feature, it works correctly in Impress (see OpenOffice Forum and Launchpad links below).
**Related Background Information**
It was "reported" and confirmed back in 2006. I say "reported" because searching various bug trackers and discussion leads me to this OpenOffice discussion being the first (and only) reported incident back in 2006: http://www.oooforum.org/forum/viewtopic.phtml?t=33998
The first real bug report was in Launchpad in 2010 on the Ubuntu bug tracker for both OpenOffice and LibreOffice Impress as it effects both projects: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libreoffice/+bug/651511
This bug report references that discussion and I believe whoever reported this bug also is referencing that forum discussion (but without providing a link).
No fix was ever implemented by Ubuntu because it was deemed something that it should be fixed upstream. Also, since no new packages from OpenOffice/LibreOffice were going into the reported version of Ubuntu, the bug was closed as Won't Fix.
Searching on the OpenOffice bug tracker, the closest thing I found was this report about Grow/Shrink in the Draw application: https://issues.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=82717 There does not appear to be any report of this bug in the OpenOffice tracker for Impress.
Searching on the LibreOffice bug tracker obviously led me to this being the only reported incident of the bug.
**Updated Information / Confirmation**
I've tested that this option is missing on both:
* Windows 7 x86_64 - LibreOffice Impress version 126.96.36.199
* ArchLinux x86_64 - LibreOffice Impress version 188.8.131.52
If needed, I can test this on other platforms as well but the bug seems straightforward. If needed, I can get a PowerPoint file with the animation to test in Impress when I go to work on Monday.

Attached is a file that shows the logic for the Grow and Shrink Effect is in LO, but the UI is missing. It should be found here:

It appears a new bug has now been added to the Apache OO bugzilla:
Link added to the See Also list.
The UI in LO 184.108.40.206 is still missing the feature.
I second this RFE since it is needed for high-quality, professional presentations and there currently exists no workaround.
Could you offer any tips on this? Could it be an easy hack?

PowerPoint grow and shrink animations on a shape
If you import a pptx, which has this animation, you get a UI for it. But you cannot get this animation in a native LO presentation.
The animation itself has some bugs. The scaling factor is not imported from *.pptx and it is not possible in that UI to set a "shrinking" factor. You can click on "smaller" and "tiny" but you get a growing.
Therefore I think, the UI should only be enabled, if these bugs are fixed too.
The import from pptx problem is in bug 98477.

It seems that shrinking is not working. Daily Build 10.06. (5.5.0). It grows only.
Auto preview, has a bad behavior. Type one size number and it tabs out and start auto preview. Cant type more than one number... Maybe should wait for enter.

That's not the topic of this report, though.
Please open a new report for the shrinking problem and add me to CC. I confirm it.
Iceflower: see previous comment.
