Moving between slides

I have a button set up in my resources that take you to a PDF document. When done viewing the PDF document there is a red X set up on the slide which takes you back to the last slide visited which is the Resource page. My Red X on the Resource page says to take you to last slide visited which takes you back to the PDF page. It goes in a circle. 

 

What I would like to happen is when you go to the Resource page and you click on a button that should take you to the PDF document. Then when you click on the red X after viewing the PDF document it should take you back to Resources then when you click the Red X on resoursces it should take you to the page you were on before you ever went to Resources in the first place. How can I do this?

That is the problem with a command to go to the last slide visited. Try to use Jump to with a precise target slide.

Another idea:  Set the button that opens the PDF to open it as a file in a different window to that of the course.  Then when the learner closes down the PDF window or tab, they would automatically find themself looking at the last slide they had visited.

Hi Christine,

 

It sounds like this will be running from your website. So I would keep all your PDF's in a folder, uplod them to your website. And then when you go to the Resource page, you can either use Javascript and open a new window perfectly sized (you made need to research a little javascript to implenent this - but its nothing so fancy. Or an easy way is to use the Action "Open URL or File" navigate to your PDF and on the little arrow drop down next to the URL location you can choose the Target "New" which will spawn open a new window with your PDF within it. This way you don't need to worry about going back to the last screen - it will be exactly where the user left off. Then they can just close the pop-up window (javascript) or the browser window (open URL)

 

Hope that helps!
