Is it possible to have a popup PDF follow along with a lesson? I would like to have the pdf jump to specific areas in the pdf with each slide next button click. So each time the user clicks the next page button, the pdf would jump to a different part of the pdf with information that relates to that slide.
Not in Captivate out of the box. Something similar exists in the Presenter plug-in. It seems a bit weird to me for eLearning courses but that is a personal opinion. You can create a toggle button which pops up more information on each slide, but not directly popping up a pdf at a certain bookmark.
Maybe you'll need JS?
Yea its a bit of a pain. The client wants the pdf popup so the instructor can lead the course in class.
How would you add a toggle button with more info?
There are several possibilities, but you need at least one user variable (Boolean) to track the visiibility of the popup. Will label it v_visib. The easiest way is by adding a custom state to the Button which has the popup added to it. I explained the workflow in:
Use the On Enter event of each slide, to reset the variable to 0 and to go back to the Normal state of the button. That way you can reuse the variable on each slide.
