I am trying to get an advanced action to implement a page changing routine, e.g. showing only one page and hiding the rest. My problem is that if I use Decision groups for each conditional statement, if variable Page = 1, the routines all execute and it goes from 1 to 99 in the same click. I only want it to execute 1 condition per click.

Sorry but that is how decisions in advanced actions work. Maybe you should look for another approach. I don't understand fully what you want to do in a Captivate course? You cannot hide slides at all, or are 'pages' something else? Can you explain?

I want to hide the text for page 1 and show the text for page 2. That would mean that I was "on" page 2. When I click the next page button, I want to hide the text for page 2 and show the text for page 3, and so on. If I only had one button to do this job, that button would have to resolve a condition, the page variable is equal to 1, and then execute some actions, including incrementing the page variable. I wouldn't want it to go to page 3 unless the user clicked again.

Why do you not just put the right text on each slide? I don't understand, unless 'page' is not a slide as I asked before?

Maybe you ignore that you can time text for the rest of the project, and Hide/show as much as you want?

You have to look outside of the box, not with an approach with tons of decisions. Use a shared action, but reflect what exactly you want to do.

As for the slide number, just insert the system variable cpInfoCurrentSlide, which is the slide number.
