Trying to remove click boxes-HELP!

Apr 11, 2012 10:55 AM

Tags: #adobe #video #clickbox

I'm working on a presentation in Captivate 5.5, and am a new user of the program.

 

I imported a Powerpoint and added voiceover to each of my 12 slides, and then realized that click boxes had been automatically added to each slide when I imported. I deleted each of these, since I want the presentation to play through without the animations or audio pausing during the slides. Even now, after they have been deleted, when I preview the presentation or fully publish it, the click box still pauses the animation, even after being deleted. Why is this happening? I need them gone!!

 

I'm on a deadline and need to get this resolved ASAP. Does anyone have any advice?

    Can you post a screenshot of the Timeline of such a slide?

     

    Was PPT set up to have user interaction to move on?

    Matthew, can you post a screen capture of PowerPoint? If it's version 2010, click the slide affected and look at the Transitions tab.

    Hi Mathew,

     

    These click boxes are embedded in the slide at the time of creation of the project.

    We cannot delete them from this project as they were taken from Microsoft PowerPoint

    Please create a new project from Microsoft PowerPoint and in the 'Convert PowerPoint Presentation' dialog box, set Advanced Slide to Automatically.

    Hope you will find this helpful.

    Do you have buttons on that slide?

     

    Can you share the project with us?

    Please provide your email address.

    You should have seen the click boxes if you choose the first option (user advance), I do not know why AdiyaKalania says they are embedded

     

    But this must be something in PPT, where you want to advance by mouse click. Captivate will honor that. Check in Advanced animation, Animation pane in PPT, if any object is set to appear at mouse click. The symbols (green) in this screenshot show that there is a click wanted for the object to appear:

    Fine, that is what I tried to explain, probably not well, from the start.

     

    Yes, set it to appear after previous (if you want a sequence) instead of by click. Try to do the timing that way and re-import in Captivate.
