I am doing a software demo for a customer in training mode, and I would like the "hint" to appear right away when they enter the slide. The user will have no idea what to do, so I want them to be informed right when they enter the slide. Is there a way to change the behavior of the "hint" button?
No, the hint caption only appears when the user hovers near to the place where he should 'do' something.
In a case like this, I would just add a text caption to explain, you can place it and time it like you want,
Thanks Lilybiri. That is what I ended up doing. Is there a way to change the behavior of the “hint” and “failure” buttons ?
Thanks again! You are very helpful.
Re: How do I get the "hint" to appear earlier in the slide in Software Demo - Training mode?
Hint, Failure, and Success captions are all related to specific interactive objects such as click boxes, buttons, text entry boxes, etc. The Hint caption usually appears on mouseover of the interactive object (as Lieve mentioned). It's intended to help the user find that interactive object and know what to do with it. These hint captions are not designed for the slide as a whole.
It sounds a bit like you just want some captions to appear that will give the user info about what to do with the slide. For that requirement, you can just add some ordinary text captions and format them to look like your Hint captions.
