Starting a process interaction with a step other than 1

Had a good question today from an Engage user. She asked:

"I'm trying to create a new engage activity by picking up a process starting with step 12 versus step 1.  Is there any way for me to change the steps in the tabs to start with 12?"

Right now there isn't a turn-key way to modify the starting step number on a Process interaction in Engage '09. But! You could get resourceful with a different interaction, such as a Timeline interaction, and use that to display your content in a linear way instead. Here's an example:

Yes definitely Bruce! I like your circle example.

o me the Timeline interaction seemed an especially good fit in Karen's situation, since it has a linear/horizontal feel similar to a Process interaction. But I love the idea of mixing things up with a different type of interaction as you've shown. A Tabs interaction might be a nice solution too. Or even use a Labeled Graphic with an image of your choosing, and insert numbered markers, starting with 12, for the step detail....
