On the Publish settings screen, Projector tab, there is a checkbox for "Animate in background". Is that what you are looking for?
I've made sure that is checked...it is..
Basically when the user clicks the button the PDF launches...but the projector freezes on the Mouseover state of the projector
when they close acrobat and come back to the projector it is stuck in a Mouseover state and none of the buttons are interactivity. Otherwards, the mouseovers no longer works, mouseups don't respond...I've run a check to see if the movie is fact frozen and it it not..If I keep clicking on and off the focus of the projector eventually I get some buttons to allow the mouseup event to process and the playhead begins going where it's supposed to.
I know it's something simple..but I just can't seem to figure it out..it's just freezing in the Mouseover state once the PDF launches and the director projector is no longer the focus application.
I'm still hoping for some help with this problem.
Essentially what is happening is when a end user mouses over or clicks a graphic button that has behaviors attached for mouseenter, mouseleave, mouseup it change the background image (which I want), changes the graphic of the button (which I want), changes the cursor (which I want). When they click the button it launches a PDF externally from the DVD in Acrobat.
If the end user goes up to the toolbar and closes Acrobat and then clicks back on the projector is appears to be frozen in the mouseEnter state of the above mentioned button. All other buttons lose their MouseEnter animations and interactivity...basically the projector is frozen and does not respond to user interaction that is there.
All of this works fine when I run the movie from Director...the above problem only occurs on a Macintosh and from the macProjector.app file
