Not sure how to enable an action that both Reverses the motion of the timeline .. then stops at a certain point without having a hard stop on the timeline itself but instead on the action of the button that is being clicked.. I'm not a developer.
I've had a nice slideshow made up and know how to set the buttons to go back and forth from position but need it to keep the animation when going backwards (or reversing) instead having the hard stops, I want the transitions that I've made then a pause only when I trigger a Next or Back arrow. So I need this slideshow to play automatically at first.

Please wait till the 2nd slide ... hit the back arrow .. it Reverses but doesn't pause! I know you can put 'stops' on the timeline .. but I need it to stop based on the button's action instead after it reverses. Does this make sense?
I wrote a tutorial a little while ago that might help you in solving your problem. It describes how to create a simple state model to help you decide which action to take when you hit a point in the timeline by using variables.
Search for "state managment."
Hope that helps,
I'll have to try this out and stretch my left brain out a bit. For the moment I've resorted to simply putting hard stops in the Timeline to make it work *almost exactly how I need it.
