Adding automatic stops afer each slide in a recorded project

I have a project recorded as demonstration, but I want to
make it stop after each slide and advance only on user action. I
don't want to be adding any buttons or anything - I am content with
the playback control provided by captivate. I don't see any reason
creating my own secondary navigation,
I just want user to use Forward and Backward buttons from
Captivate Playback control to navigate between the slides - but the
movie keeps playing constantly.
Please, is there an easy way how to make all slides in a
project stop at end? Thank you!

Hi Skippi.sk and welcome to our community
The only way to accomplish this is to insert either a click
box or a button on each slide. Probably the easiest way is using a
click box. object. Insert it on the first slide, size and position
as needed, then copy it. Then select slides two through the end and
paste the object.
Hopefully this helps... Rick

  • Best method to copy slide audio to new project ?

    Captivate v5.5
    I have a project made up of multiple slides.
    Each slide has its own audio.
    I need to update the project (resize and update slide images) but the audio does not need to be changed.
    Rather than record the narration for each slide again, I am planning to copy  the audio of each slide from the old project (export) to the new project (import). Audio of slide 1 of old project gets attached to slide 1 of new project etc.
    Any suggestions as to the best way to do this bearing in mind I have multiple slides each with their own audio and I need to ensure I attach the right audio file to the new version of the slide it was copied from.
    Thanks in advance,
    Noel

    Hi Noel,
    Can only explain what would be my method in that case. All audio clips will be found in the library, but they have a not very descriptive name. I would identify them and change the name (if they have to go to the same slide number, just put the slide number in it). Then in the new project I would open the old as an external Library (File, import, external library) and drag the audio clips to the proper slides. External libraries are so little known, but I use them all the time (have a set of often used assets in separate project files that I only use as external libraries)

    PS just did see the official answer from the staff, but please, rename your clips there as well or you will not be able to identify them. In the original file you can look for the clip in the Library from each slide

  • How do I stop the Cp from advancing automatically to the next slide?

    I'm using Windows NT and Adobe Captivate 4. 
    Until now, I've been creating demos in Cp4 where the movie file just continues to the next slide automatically.  Now I'm making the Cp files more interactive and would like to know how to make the movie not advance to the next screen automatically.  In other words, I'd like the user to have to click the Next button to move to the next slide. 
    Thank you.

    Hi there
    You do this by inserting a Click Box or a Button object on each slide. Either of these objects will typically pause the slide until clicking the object or another action makes it proceed.
    Cheers... Rick

  • I downloaded iMesh and I can't stop it from automatically popping up each time I request a new tab. I have uninstalled the program, but I want to stop it from defaulting as a new tab. I tried uninstalling, but it is no longer installed as an add-on

    I downloaded iMesh and I can't stop it from automatically popping up each time I request a new tab. I have uninstalled the program, but I want to stop it from defaulting as a new tab. I tried uninstalling the add on and plug in, but it is no longer installed as an add-on or plug in. How do I get the "new tab" request to simply open with a blank address in the address box instead of www.imesh.com.

    Ok, I finally managed to get rid of it.
    First I did the thing with the about:config but I flitered for imesh instead and managed to reset two thing but when I got to the keyword.URL I got the same thing as lolbabe98 did with the "An attempt to change your search engine or homepage was blocked."
    Then I did a search on my C: drive for iMesh and discovered some things that hadn't been removed even though I had unistalled both the toolbar and the actual program. After that it worked fine and I now have a regular "untitled" tab when I open a new tab.
    One last thing, when I tried to remove some of the files there was one that said it was in use, it was called datamanagerUI or something rather. The only thing I had to do there was to open Task Manager and kill a process called DATAMN~1 and I was able to remove it. Hope this helps.

  • Stopping Automatic transition to new slide

    Hello,
    I'm sure this is right in front of my face somewhere, but I
    cannot figure out how to stop captivate from automatically
    proceeding to next slide. I've created a full motion video that
    spans over two slides. After then end of slide one, it
    automatically goes to slide two. I've inserted a transparent button
    I want the user to click before proceeding to the slide two, and
    gave it the action of "Go To Next Slide" when clicked. Doesn't work
    though... Slide still automatically moves on without having to
    click first. I didn't see anything under slide properties for this
    either.
    Any help will be appreciated.

    Welcome to our community, Jason!
    Normally you pause a slide by inserting either a Button or
    Click Box object. These two objects pause the slide dead in its
    tracks until the user clicks. However, whether the slide pauses or
    not is your choice. You may turn it off if you need to. But by
    default, they pause.
    Cheers... Rick

  • Each slide stops at end

    Hello.
    I made a captivate movie and it seems to pause after each
    slide. I need to keep pressing play in order to play continuously.
    I could not find an option for this, any ideas?
    Thank you.
    - Adrian.

    Hi Adrian
    When you record movies in Captivate, you have a choice in how
    they are recorded. By default, automatic mode is enabled. (Click
    Options > Recording Options... > Recording Options tab and
    see if there is a check mark in the "Enable auto recording" check
    box. Normally this is enabled by default and I'm guessing it is
    enabled here.
    Now, take a look at the Recording mode drop-down. Here is
    where you probably changed something and failed to realize it. If
    you choose Demonstration, the resulting movie should just play
    along without pausing. But if you choose either of the Simulation
    modes, interactive objects are inserted that typically pause the
    movie at each slide. This results in the behavior you are
    describing. So how do you fix this?
    1. You *could* simply change the recording mode back to
    Demonstration, then re-record the movie
    OR
    2. You could edit each slide to remove any interactive
    objects (Click Boxes, Buttons or Text Entry Boxes), then adjust the
    timing so things play through as desired.
    Cheers... Rick

  • Email adress adding automatically to contacts. How can I deactivate this to happen?

    Each email that I send got their adress added automatically in 'contact' or 'adress book'. How can I stop this to happen?

    I'm very glad that helped!
    It's good you looked in the Manual first. Certainly not everyone does that.
    With Apple products, I've found that not everything is completely documented, but sometimes if you try something that seems like it should work, it actually does work.
    That's how I personally learned about this feature.
    Enjoy your Apple gear!

  • Adding a logo to every slide in my presentation in Keynote '09

    I can't seem to figure out how to add a logo to each slide automatically something like a slide number is added automatically when the proper selections are set. The item I would like on each slide is a four letter logo on the lower left corner of each slide.

    Are you putting your logo directly on to the slide, or are you putting it on the MASTER SLIDES? On the left side of the display (below New, Play and perhaps Skip) you should have 2 stacked, vertical columns titled Master Slides and Slides. If you only see Slides, then grab the handle to the right of the title and drag it down to find your Master Slides. Open each of the masters and copy and paste your logo on to them. Now it will appear on every slide.

  • I want to be able to create an editable Evernote note from a PPT presentation, preserving the Speaker Notes at the bottom of each slide, while making that text still editable.  Can I use automator to copy/paste each slide/notes into Evernote?

    I can print the PPT as a PDF with speaker notes but this makes it into an attachment when adding to Evernote which for some reason makes the text on each slide/image unsearchable and it just makes the whole file too big (which in many cases violates Evernote's 100 MB file size limit).
    I have been researching how to convert the PPT to a Word document, but apparently Microsoft got rid of that feature in the version that I have (14.3.9) because it was too unweildy and just didn't always work like it was supposed to.
    I don't have any experience with coding (very limited html coding), but it seems to me like this would be a very simple thing to do with Automator where I could just specify the new PPT that I received, click run, and voila! have an Evernote note with each slide followed by its speaker notes in text format so that I could add/delete/edit them as I please as I'm working through them for school.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks!

  • How can I add a two second pause to the beginning of each slide?

    Hello,
    I have a project with TTS and perfectly aligned CC notes - 64 slides.  Now the customer would like for there be a two-second pause before the audio begins on each slide in order to allow the user to first become oriented with the slide.  Is there a way I can do this without moving the audio down the timeline two seconds, and then having to adjust the appearance of each of the CC notes accordingly? 
    I was thinking of something like pause two seconds On Enter -- Is this possible?
    Thanks for any help!!

  • Ipod stops after each track ends in a playlist?

    I have a problem: Suddenly, my ipod stops after each track ends in a playlist.  This happens with every playlist and every track, all of which worked fine until this week.  All tracks' settings are "yes" on 1) part of a compilation; 2) remember playback position and; 3) skip when shuffling.  I have not updated any software or added any new content to my ipod.  I imagine that some setting has been switched on or off, but I am unable to identify which one.  Please help as these are my audio books!  Thanks!

  • How do i automatically start the next slide after the video on the prevues slide is finished

    I have slide 1 with a video loop witch tranistion to the next on a click. the next slide (slide2) automaticlly starts plays. I want to know how to start Slide 3 automaticlly after the video on slide 2 is done playing. Slide 3 is also on a loop. and start slide 4 on a click. then repeats......  

    I once had the same problem, but it was worse because the length of the video was more than the maximum delay that could be set (Keynote'08, I do not know if this changed in '09). I was helped by someone of this community. She suggested adding invisible text fields, each having a delay, sequenced one after the other. Together they added up to a sufficient delay to play my video and go to the next slide after that. I hope this information will be of use, if need arises.

  • Adding variables to match question slides

    Hi All,
    I am using Captivate 7 and need your help/idea/expertise on this. I am trying the following:
    Adding a drag and drop slide wherein I should be able to drop the source to any target.
    If the drop happens on the correct option (this is the challenge, how can I define the correct answer!), a message should flash saying "You are right"
    If even a single drop goes wrong, then I the right answers should flash, (this I can create a new slide though)
    But to set such conditions what should I exactly do? Please help.
    Thanks,
    Roja

    The title of your question is bit confusing. Why should you have to add variables to match question slides?
    The content of your question is totally different: each D&D slide can act as a question slide. It doesn't really have all the features of a question slide but most of them: Reporting, Score (only black/white, not partial score/penalty), Attempts, Actions On Success/Failure. When it is configured as a question its score will be reset when the user 'Retakes' a quiz with multiple attempts on quiz level etc. Progress quiz indicator will not be included however. And defining the correct answers is a breeze with the wizard or with the button Correct Answers.
    The best part about D&D are IMO the 'Object actions': you can specify an advanced action for each drag&drop act and that is what you need. Do not use a simple action, because it will release the play head. That action can show a feedback text/object that was previously hidden, it can apply an effect to an object like flashing, etc. This blog post was written for CP8, but can help maybe:
