Replay button to go back to frame 2

I have a Play button on my Captivate slide for the user to press when they want to hear the audio for the slide. After the audio plays I have a Replay button appear in case they want to hear the audio again. But, the replay button takes them back to the beginning of the slide showing the Play button again. I want the Replay to go back to frame 2 to bypass that Play button, Is this possible?

It is possible to do so but rather tricky because micro-navigation (between frames) is not very 'exact'. Moreover it is not sure that the Play button is gone on frame 3 at all. You should have posted a screenshot. It would be better to hide the Play button once it has been pressed. You can always show it again - if you need revisiting the slide - using the On Enter event of the slide. In summary, you use an advanced action for the Play button:

    Hide Play button

    Play.....

You don't specify the action you provided for the Replay button. Was it based on my blog post:

Or maybe on this Captivate tutorial:

The Play button does disappear after pressed. I was able to get the slide to replay from 00:02 on the timeline with this code: "Assign  cpCmndGotoFrameAndResume with 31" but only when playing that one slide (which is slide 7 in my project). When I play the project from the beginning, once I get to that slide and press the Replay button, I am taken back to slide 1. I'm assuming I need to tell Captivate to go to the beginning of current slide and then resume with 31 but I don't know how to do this. I definitely need some training on the different advanced actions choices and how to properly use them. replay capture.PNG

'Disappear' how? Using that advanced action?

I suspect you are new to the micro-navigation? The index for frames is over the whole project, not for one slide. I offered you already a link to my tutorials about Replay. If the Play button is hidden when it is pressed, you can go to the first frame of the slide using:

cpCmndGotoSlide = cpInfoCurrentSlide - 1

Here is an introduction to Micro-navigation:
