Partial play through, partial click through

May 4, 2012 2:29 PM

Greetings, and apologies as I know that this is elementary and probably already discussed multiple times. I couldn't find it in the search.


I am designing a training where I will embed a captivate presentation within a captivate training. I want to have steps of the process play through, and then stop for some interactive content (rollover/mouseover etc) and then I want to have a click through to the next set of process steps. I want to embed the captivate recording in a new captivate so that I can have callouts and corresponding text that is not overlaid but is on a white back ground.




SO, my question is, How do I make a project that plays multiple slides, but then requires a click through sometimes to advance?


Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter.

    Hello and welcome to the forum


    On the slides where you want the user to click to advance, add an interactive object, probably a button that has a pausing by default (see Timing accordion). The slide will stop at that pausing point and if you set the Success action for that button to 'Go to Next Slide' this will happen when the user clicks the button.




    Just a warning: hope you will not try to embed a Captivate published SWF in a Captivate file, because that will cause issues. Have all original slides in one file

    Could you post a screenshot of the Timeline? And can you check the visibility of the button in the Properties panel? BTW: why do you use a transparant button instead of a Click box (that is transparant by default)? Another difference is that the click box always has its pausing point near the end of its timeline but you can shorten that timeline to have it also at 2secs.
