I have created a course wherein I created custom navigation buttons to move forward & backward.
While visiting the first time course is working perfect, I kept the restart button at the end, when I click on it to revisit the module, it's moving up to 2nd slide after that the navigation buttons are not responding (not taking to resultant slide).
Thanks in advance, your support is much appreciable.
Thanks & Regards
Can you please give some more details?
Thanks for your response!
Thanks a lot for your time and efforts.

Strange that you copy/pasted a button on each slide, why? Not very practical IMO. You should have used Shape buttons on the master slide(s) used for your slides, or have them on the first slide needed, timed for the rest of the project.
Since it is not working with F11, something definitely is wrong in that project. Difficult to guess what is awry. Do you have actions set up which detect if slide is visited for the first time? Do you have a Quiz? If yes, do you allow Backwards movement for the Quiz Preferences?
Now I have updated to the mentioned version.
Firstly I'm a new bee to Captivate, I learnt captivate from this community and youtube.
I didn't set up any actions to track visited slides, I don't have a quiz in my course.
You mention that you have created the forward and back buttons at slide level. If I understand you correctly, does this mean you have added two buttons to each and every slide in your project? If you have a large project, you may have hundreds of buttons, and sometimes this can cause issues because you then exceed the number of interactive objects that can work without issue in a single project. (Don't ask me how many that is but I know it falls somewhere over 100.)
You can easily test whether this might in fact be the cause of your issue by just Hiding half the slides in your project to reduce the number of buttons. Republish and test your project with say just 40 or 50 slides.
If you currently have buttons on all slides, but you have your TOC on the Master Slide, why not just add the two buttons to the Master Slide. If Master Slide objects are set to be on top, then those two buttons should appear on all slides. If the actions on the buttons are only to go to the previous slide or go to next slide, then these are generic actions that can be used for buttons on a Master Slide.
Thanks for your details, it helped to resolve the issue.
Did you read this:
I doubt that you'll find essential information on the non-curated YouTube videos.
I don't see any reasons why a Next or Previous button wouldn't work when coming back to a slide. Maybe post the setup of the TOC you are talking about?
What if you need to control the button using it's name? Shape buttons on the Master slide can't have names so you can't control them with actions.
I offered the two solutions: either on the master slide if control is not needed often (two different master slides ia a workaround), or timed for the rest of the project. In the last case you have one unique ID for each of the buttons, very easy to hide/show.
You really must read my old blogs about shape buttons.
Thanks for your details, the two different master slide idea helped to design master slide in proper structure.
Wonderful question, many times one question might be the answer for another big question.
This situation proved that to me again.
