I have a slide in captivate 4 that contains several boxes that display in the same location as the last when an 'ok' button is clicked (I use the timeline to fade in/out relevant captions). The client has asked that when you get to the final one, that a restart button shows that will reload the current slide, so you could read it again, should you have the (bizarre!) urge to.
Im sure the answer is glaring in the face but can find a relevant action for the button. Could somebody help please!!
Thanks in advance
Try this out to solve your issue:
say slide1 is the slide where-in you want a button that takes to the start of slide1.
1. Have a dummy slide(say slide D) just before slide 1.
2. Have a button on slide 1 which would have "jum to slide" action and would take the user to slide D.
3. Have " jump to slide" action on the OnSlideEnter os slide D and jump to slide 1.
Do let me know if this helped you resolve the issue.
Thanks very much, that worked a treat! I had to just have a very short (0.1 of a second) dummy slide that had nothing it. Then just setup the navigation either side to use 'jump to slide' instead of 'go to next slide/previous' slide method.
I can assure you that there cant be many people in the world who would want to read this stuff twice, but for the strange people that do, they now can!
P.D. I know this is a very old post by the way. But it's still valid, as much as my comment, 10 years after this question was asked.
Honestly, if you want Adobe to hear your ideas for improvements this user forum is the wrong place to make them. You're "preaching to the choir" here. We all want similar improvements for Captivate but the process to have any chance of seeing them happen is for ideas to be submitted via Adobe's bug/enhancement reporting form, not via a post buried at the bottom of some longish thread about a different issue.
I can certainly confirm that I submitted numerous bug/enhancement reports through the proper channels for similar simple enhancements and outright UI coding bugs from a corporate account in a previous job years ago and nothing has changed in the most recent version. Captivate is quite possibly the biggest joke when it comes to clunky/unchanging design with a hefty price tag.
