I am a new user with Captivate 4. This seems like a silly question, but I haven't been able to find it asked before (except for Captivate 2) and can't figure it out on my own.
In my project, I will not be recording software--I'll be doing an e-learning with activities like quizzes and branching. I do not want it to run like a movie--I want a forward and back button on each page that user clicks to go through the module. I figured out how to get rid of the play bar but how do I make a forward and back button appear on each page? Or do I have to do that myself by cutting and pasting?
One way is to insert two buttons on one slide. Program one to go to the previous slide and the other to go to the next slide when clicked. Then you copy the buttons, select all the other slides and paste.
The other way is to use the Perpetual Buttons Widget supplied by Captivate. Click Window > Widget, then locate and insert the widget on the first slide where you want the buttons to appear. Configure the widget to display for the rest of the project.
Helpful and Handy Links
Thanks very much, Rick. It looks like the copying and pasting I've been doing has been on the right track. i wasn't sure if there was an option like a perpetual button. I did check out the widget--it will come in handy but this time around I'd like to use my own custom buttons. I don't think I can customize the widget without knowing flash programming.
Wish me luck on my first project--I may be back with more dumb questions!
