how do you emphasize a powerpoint chevron process chevron

I have a powerpoint 2007 presentation (source unknown) in which a selected chevron in a process flow is emphasized by being presented as larger and of a different color than that of the other chevrons in the process.  If you click inside the text area of the chevron it returns to normal size.  Clicking outside the chevron reveals the emphasis. I have bee unable to determine how this is done.  Can anyone shed some light on this for me?  Please see attach slide for example.

The chevron has a Grow/Shrink animation added to it.

Assuming you're using PPT 2007, Select the object and choose Animations | Custom Animation. Then Add Effect | Emphasis | Grow-Shrink.

??? I gave you the solution. If the solution doesn't make sense, then it's up to you to post back with followup questions.

your answer is not the solution to the question. animation is not the answer.
i had already explored your solution. unless you can reproduce the effect in a new sheet and give step by step instructions on how you reproduce it, it - in my opinion - is not the answer.
i have no additional questions. the original question persists.
i'm sorry, if you are stumped.

I looked at the file you provided, and there is indeed a grow/shrink animation applied to it. I am not stumped, but I will bow out.

I'm done objecting if you want to refund him as he requested. My objection was because I gave the answer, so to see a "no answer" refund requested was very surprising because the original poster didn't ever come back and sayit didn't work for him or ask any followup questions or whatever.

He's indicated above that he doesn't think the answer is satisfactory and indicated that I don't know the answer he wants. That's fine. Give him his money back, as far as I'm now concerned.

All:
How is it that you can say that i have not commented for 21 days when there is clearly a response from me on 4/2.
if Echo_S feels he has been slighted i offer no apology.  the solution he provided does not address the issue in my opinion. even if his recommendation has been applied to the object in question, it does not answer the question as presented.
am i required to respond after he says he has bowed out? if he bowed out why is he still here?
is he objecting because i didn't agree with his answer? does he expect points when someone disagrees with him? wizard or not, his attitude points should be in the red in my opinion.

Sorry to stop the question from being deleted, but to answer the OP's original question, the reason the chevron was doing the grow/shrink upon edit was because 3D perspective was enabled. See attached PPTX.

To replicate behaviour, enable 3D perspective rotation on any shape, then change x, y, x to 0 degrees, and perspective to 120 degrees, and distance from ground to 110pt.
