I cannot remember if I already suggested to drag the Skip button under the Clear button and rename its text to 'Next' because that is its function while reviewing.
There is a stack order for the buttons on question slides. And the Clear button will not be visible during Review, so the Next button will then be available.
About stacking order and other question/score slide functionalities:
You did suggest that before, but I couldn't make it work. This time it did work. I discovered that the reason it didn't work the first time was that the Clear button and the Next button don't always have the same stacking order. It depends on the order that you click the check mark to display each of these buttons in the Properties panel.
The stacking order I mention is the original one if you do not uncheck one of the buttons. That order will indeed change if you first unchecked, then check the buttons again. Sorry for the confusion;
I am grateful for all the help you have given me.
Thanks for letting me know about the new features. In fact, I was going to convert my project to version 6, but when I tried opening one of the modules, the file size bloated to twice the original size. Perhaps it would publish at the same size as version 5.5. I haven't had time to try publishing from version 6 yet.
You mention that you removed the playbar from the quiz slides, I'd be really grateful if you could let me know how to do that please? I would like it there for all the slides preceding my quiz.
Thank you very much
I'm not Jay, but he will not mind I think
The system variable cpCmndShowPlaybar can be changed. Default value is 1 and the playbar will show. To hide it:
- on first slide where you want to hide, choose the On Enter action in the Properties panel of the slide, normally it is set to Continue
- change it to Assign
- from the dropdown list choose cpCmndShowPlaybar
- next to With type 0; now the playbar is hidden when entering that slide
To show it again on a later slide, repeat this work flow, but change to the value 1 again.
Brilliant thank you very much Lilybiri.
