I created a Question Slide with one multiple choice in it.
When I play it in preview, I click one of the anwser and hit sumbit. Then I have my feedback message displaying and the submit button stays on it's rollOver state.
Next step is to click anywhere on the screen to continue. (just as in this example Adobe Captivate - Different Feedback for Each Answer - YouTube )
Thing is I would like to change the submit button text to "Continue", instead of adding "Click anywere on the screen to continue" in my feedback message. So is there any way to add a state to this submit button that's placed there by default when creation a multiple choice?
Since my app will only be used with a touchscreen, the only walk around I found was changing the rollOver label for "Continue" but that's not ideal
Thank you for any help or tips!

First of all, something is awry in your reasoning. The Rollover state will only be left on IF the mouse remains over the button. Not sure even if it wll shwo up on a touch screen. Your solution is not water proof at all.
Moreover, since quiz buttons can only be one of the legacy types: Text, Image or Transparent buttons, you cannot even add a custom state to those buttons at all.
I have a tweak, but it is not that simple. It will appear soon in one of the posts in my series about Quizzing. I don't want to post it as an answer for reasons which I don't want to explain again.
If you are on CP2019 and used the overlay quiz slides in a VR project, you will have seen that they have implemented tthat change to a Continue button. I have some hopes that the same will be done in the future for other quiz slides. Maybe if you are patient? Or do I have to hurry with my tweak post?

Here is an idea that might accomplish what you want to do. I've often used this solution when clients don't like the "Click Anywhere to Continue action."
I create my own custom caption using a shape and whatever message I want on it. I add an overlapping shape to be my Continue button and use it as a button with the action Go To Next Slide. You can overlap the button on top of the caption or you could simply place the button on top of your submit button. I group these two objects together and label them something like Success_Caption as I've done below. Set your On Success action of your question slide to Show and then select the Success_Caption. If you have the possibility of users returning to this slide you would want to create an On Enter action for the slide (or advanced action if you have more than one) to set the visibility of the grouped object back to not visible in output.
This old tweak was described in detail in this blog post:
It used to work pretty well for SWF output. However at this moment there are several issues which make this not a good solution anymore/
Lieve is correct. I've realized that when I have used this in the past I have only placed these types of objects in blank areas of the slide so they don't interfere with question slide objects. If that works for you then great. If not I don't think I can offer a solution at this time.
Thank you both for your fast anwsers! I decided to make my own custom quiz, less complicated in the end beacause it's way more flexible, following some of your youtube videos Paul! So thank you anyway
But you will lose functionality like resetting answers, Review
functionality. Have created tons of custom questions since 10 years. It is
for sure better for control but way more work even if you are skilled with
shared and advanced actions.
