I have 5 buttons on a slide,  the first four will allow different PDF files to open when each button is pressed.  The 5th button goes to next slide when pressed.  The 5th button is the only one that has a delay.  Currently, when the learner presses one of the buttons to open a pdf, it does what is supposed to happen.  In a new tab, the pdf opens, but when I come back to the tab with the lesson, the slide goes to the next slide.  This happens without the 5th button being pressed.  How do I prevent this from happening unless the learner presses the 5th button.

Thank you.

That is a totally different use case from this question: it is not about showing the Next button after having opened all the pdf's but about the project continuing to the next slide after a pdf has been closed. User forgot to uncheck 'Continue Playing Project'.

Can you post a screenshot of the Timeline and of the Actions tab of a button opening a pdf? I suspect you forgot to deactivate the option 'Continue Playing the Project'.

Thank you, you're right.  I forgot to uncheck this button.  I remembered it while driving home last night.  Thank you.
