600 seconds? Seriously? OMG, that's ten minutes!
Personally, I would never recommend having a slide longer than maybe ten seconds. I'm not sure how you even manage a timeline that long.
At any rate, whatever floats your boat I suppose. My guess is that you have some object (Click Box, Button or Text Entry Box) that is sitting on the timeline and pausing things before the button you wish to see has a chance to appear.
Aha, yes I'd just noticed the "Pause after" property on the button, which was pausing it.
Another Captivate user advised me to do the 600 secs, to stop slides from ever moving on by themselves - but that seems to overlook the Pause After property. Maybe I'll try organising it with that instead.
Using pause, included with many of the objects (such as back/next buttons, will keep slides from "moving on by themselves". My modules are all set to 6 seconds for consistency purposes. Manipulating appearance and timing is all you need to do.
