Good morning:

I am new to Captivate and am creating a course and want to have some object animations start as soon as the new slide is open.without having the playback control visible.  there are a series of pictures and text that move. I have set up the timings and everything works.  But when I preview the slide the animations stop or never start.   I just want the learner to click next, have the slides advance to the next one, and all the animations just play till the end.

Help??

Can you please post a screenshot of the TImeline? You have to know that 'Play Slide' is NOT a preview method which means it will never show how it will look when published. To see a real preview use one of the Preview methods, best are those in Browser (if you are in a non-responsive project). Play Slide should only be used for timing, synchronizing...

You could read some of my blog posts about the TImekine, which is the most mportant panel. You have to understand how the playhead can be paused. Here is onel link:

Yep I know that play is not the same a one of the preview selections. It all works when I hit play in the bottom left. But when I preview it stops as the first text animation happens .
