Can anyone help me? I am using Captivate 3. I would like to
replay a slide over and over again until a user clicks the forward
button to go to the next slide. On one slide I have a number of
images fading in and out - in sequence -in the time line. When the
playhead get to the end of the slide I would like the playhead to
go back to frame 1 and start the whole timeline again, showing the
images in sequence again. Can this be done automatically?
Duplicate the slide you are trying to loop.
On the original copy, remove any and all objects.
Configure the Slide Duration to be really super short, like
Configure the new copy so that when the slide ends, it jumps
to the previous slide after play completes. Do this via Slide
Properties in the Navigation drop-down.
The net result should be that the slide appears to loop
endlessly. Then you would want a Button or Click box on the looping
slide that allows the user to move forward. You would configure the
Button or Click box so it didn't pause.
Rick, thank you for the information. I have tried this and
whilst you do get a flicker as the movie goes back one and then
forward one slide - it is a workaround. What I will do next is to
duplicate some of the non-sequential elements, title, border, text
field and so on and see if that just removes the flicker. I wonder
why Adobe did not include in the drop down action menu - 'go to
current slide' so as to allow repetition of any animation a slide
