I'm a relatively new user to Captivate and need some help with the following:

 

I created a software simulation and need to add an Exit button so if users want to leave the course before completion, they can. As part of this, when the Exit button is clicked, I need a text box to appear saying - are you sure you want to exit the course - and then have the corresponding options set up to either go back to the course or exit.

 

Any advice on how to do this would be appreciated.

You didn't tell if you are busy with a responsive (fluid boxes) or a non-responosive project. This could be the workflow for a non-responsive project:

  • Create two buttons 'Continue' and 'Confirm Exit'; action for Continue can be 'Go to Next Slide', and for the other 'Exit'.
  • Create your 'message' in a text container and 
  • Group the message and the two buttons, have the buttons pause at the same moment
  • Hide them in Output (eye button in the Properties panel of the group)

For the 'Exit' button, create a a short advanced action with these commands:

  • Hide Exit button
  • Show Group
