    Pause Playback Control???

    melissa kaiser Level 1
      Good morning!

      I'm a bit frustrated with my playback control at the moment. Hope someone can help me...
      I've put together a short slide with audio and want to utilize a playback skin that cap3 is bundled with. The only problem I'm having at the moment is after export, allowing the user to hit the play and having the swf/audio begin. At the moment, the audio and swf are starting into things on their own.

      Any advice out there on what to do so I can have the user control the swf, not the other way around? Thank you!!!!

          Hi Melissa

          You may pause the first slide by inserting a Click Box object (Or a Button or a Text Entry Box, but I'm assuming your only goal is to pause it, not solicit input or present a button )

          You may also configure the Click Box object for "No Action".

          Hopefully this was helpful... Rick

            Hi Rick,

            Thanks for your reply. I only have 1 slide in the entire project, so adding a click box doesn't appear to have solved my problem. Do you have any other ideas that might work? I hate that the pre-bundled skins just launch right into everything without letting the user determine when they want the swf file to start. I hope the next version corrects that problem! :o)

            Thanks again

              Hi Melissa,

              The process Rick mentioned *is* the method used to let the user determine when things start.

              I'm guessing your audio is attached to the slide? If so, then you need to insert a "splash" slide *before* the audio slide and add a button/click box to determine when the user goes to the second slide (and thus when all the good stuff starts).
