I'm trying to create a slideshow with the Overlay Creator panel. I've done this plenty of times before but for some reason now the buttons and check boxes in the Slideshow panel do not work. Any body run into this before or have a handling?
The slideshow options in the Overlay Creator panel don't show up if a frame within the slideshow is selected. If you click outside the slideshow and then click it again, the dashed lines should appear. The panel options should then be available. Is that the issue?
The problem is not that the slideshow options do not appear. I have created my images into object states (in the Object States panel) and can even assign buttons to them which, when pressed, bring up the next slide. And, when I select the images (object states), the Slideshow panel in the Overlay Creator does show up — that's all good. The bug is: the options in the Slideshow panel are not working. None of the boxes "check" when I click on them. I'm trying to "check" the Swipe to Change Image box but it won't check (as well as all other boxes).
Yes, sometimes (on certain check boxes) there was a flittering moment of it being checked, then it unchecked immediately afterward. I've quit InDesign and also deleted prefs, but no good. Any other ideas. I'm running CS5 on a MacPro with the latest Lion OS. Possibly it's a CS5 update issue? Maybe CS5.5ers don't have this problem?
For me they don't work sometimes also.
I was curios to find out what's going on, and the reason was simple. The options are active only when all states are chosen in MSO panel. With any single state chosen – the slidesdhow options are grayed out. I suspect that this behavior was introduced lately, as I noticed it as something unusual.
Either this is as designed, or a bug. No idea;-)
Thanks for your input. I don't get one thing though: I don't see how you can select all of the states in the object states panel. It won't allow me to. I can only select one state at a time — trting the shift-select doesn't work.
On the top bar of the Objects States panel you see the bare with the name of the MSO. To the right there is an icon of two intersecting squares. Clicking it choses whole MSO and enables input into Overlay Creator. At least for me;-)
I had this problem too until I tried deTabbing the Overlay Creator panel from the Folio Builder panel. They were together in the same panel as tabs. Putting it on its own fixed the inability to check the check boxes.
