    I don't see the problem. What you have should work.


    What happens if you start preview and select button 2 instead of button 1?


    Experimenting with the project risks corrupting it, but I suspect that is already the problem. An experiment would be to remove the button one link to slideshow 1, and see if button two will play its correct slideshow.


    It may take a bit longer, but you may want to start (another) brand new project, new name, new directory for good measure. Add a single menu and create the problem slideshow. Set the end action of the slideshow to "return to last menu." Link it. Does it play in preview? If so, add the original first slideshow and link it to a button.

    One method; select the button, click on the link contents and hit delete. You may need to select the link in that box.

    I imported new slideshows and tryed that as well but it still does it

    When you say imported a slideshow, do you mean imported the images again and created the slideshow?


    I this doesn't sort itself out quickly, and since you say you are new, create a new test project to play with doing links.


    Import your one menu. Select it and duplicate it twice. Edit the  header on each one so you can tell them apart. Set menu one's (the first one you imported will be set as first play) first bu tton to link to menu 2 and its second button to link to menu 3. Set menu two's first button to link to menu 1 and its second to menu 3 etc.


    Does it work?
