Prevent imported slides (powerpoint) from advancing when clicking on screen

I imported a group of 60 slides from powerpoint (pptx 2013) into my Captivate 9, however, I've noticed that by doing this, slides advance when I click anywhere on the screen even if I deleted the clickbox that I thought triggered this action. What I did was to disable this action directly in powerpoint and I didn't click "high fidelity" when importing into captivate. Nevertheless, by not clicking "high fidelity", the fonts of some slides get changed, so I need to click it. So, my question is, is there any way in which I can prevent the slides from advancing and having high fidelity clicked at the same time?

I will not repeat my criticsm of using PPT as start for an eLearning course. That import tries to mimick the ppt behavior as closely as possible. What were the other settings when importing the PPT slides?

Hi, Lilybiri, I agree with you about the use of ppt as a start.

These are the other settings.

You did set it up to 'Advance slide On mouse click'. If you choose the other option (auto) slides will play without needing any click, they will not advance to the next slide if you click.

I've already tried the other way. I chose the auto option, and It indeed didn't stop, but I added a button that pauses the slide and triggers the "go to the next slide" action when clicked, but if I click any part of the screen, the slide still plays!, I've already checked and there's nothing (visible at least) on the slide that could possibly trigger the "continue" action.

Did you put that next button on the blank master slide, which is used for imported PPT slides?

I tried putting it on the blank master slide I used for importing the ppt slides and also putting it on the slides once they were already imported and it behaves the same.

Did you try to keep the click box, but to edit its command to No action?

I understood that clicking the slide moved it to the next slide, but now yuo wrote " when clicking the screen, it plays."?

No, clicking the slide plays them when they're paused (and therefore they move to the next slide)
