I thought this would be pretty simple but I seem to be at an impasse. I want to give the user a certain amount of time to click a button on a slide, and, after that time has elapsed I want a highlight box to appear around the button to inform the user where to click. I've been playing around with system variables such as cpInfoCurrentTime and cpInfoElapsedTimeMS, but just haven't been able to get this to work, much to my chagrin. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Maybe this blog post can help you? It is not about a highlight box, but about a Hint, should be easy to translate:

Showing Hint with a Delay - Captivate blog

I hope you are not on a very old version of Captivate, and that you have the Delay command.

Well, that was an annoyingly simple solution that I'm embarrassed to say I didn't think of. I use the Delay command all the time and I've used it for a similar circumstance - what was I thinking? I guess I just wanted to do something cool with advanced actions. Thanks, as always.

I prefer KISS solutions Totally understand, happens to me as well.  And later on find a much easier solution, mostly.
