Here's my solution to Filip's spring challenge:

No need to use the new Arrows or Spaghetti tool when you want to make springs. Instead use the TURN element in the WINDOW > ELEMENT tool and animate the ITALIC prop.

I've attached the show files for you to play around with.

Here's how it looks like in Bixelangelo.

-flag the menu item WINDOW > ELEMENT
-select the TURN element
-Set the ANGLE to 2520 (this is 7 x 360, but any other high number will do)
-Set the RADIUS to 30 (this can be adjusted afterwards in BluffTitler with the PEN SIZE prop of the sketch layer)
-Set the height to something like 100
-Set the SLANT to 0 (we are not riding the spring as a roller coaster so no need for this)

Thanks Michiel.
Change the key property to damper. It's how a spring would behave.

Thank you all!

Lightads, switching to DAMPER (layers 6, 7, 8 and 9) is an excellent improvement!
