any1 else?? - an Engage into Presenter + new Player UI = YUCK!?
So remember when you'd be in your PPT, and launch Engage from it, and do a Guided Image .intr, and publish the whole thing out and get :
Except that the *sarcastic fingerquotes* "SREAMLINED UI" takes away pretty much ALL of that.... And what you are left with, is now, when you do the above in '13, you get an .intr in a player , where the "CONTROLS" ... [PREV] & [NEXT] are set to "Auto" when in the Presenter's Slide Properties (and on the .intr's slide), because the [PREV] [NEXT] buttons are now being (optionally) used for the .intr . (see image below)
HOWEVER... these [PREV] [NEXT] buttons are ONLY for moving back/forth within the .intr... but NOTHING happens to them visually to distinguish this new/different functionality.
AND... even though the "edit properties" of the .INTR slide allow you to "let the user leave the interaction: AT ANYTIME".. .. all of the sudden, the ONLY way that is possible now, is IF the user knows that they now have to use the MENU to get out of the .intr (so you BETTER have a MENU now).
Sooo... was wondering if anyone had figured out ANY kind of pseudo-workaround to this?... So that you aren't forcing this (questionable?) new UI / UX upon the user?
And then 2ndary, is EVERY engage .intr have STEPS now?? --- even if your say, Guided Image .intr is meant to NOT be Linear..., and you want your user to be able to click on whatever Markers they want, in whatever ORDER they want (and maybe if, god forbid, let the user LEAVE the .intr) .. Because, the exception to the rule of the [PREV] / [NEXT] button, is that you move back/forth in the .intr , UNTIL the user has clicked-on or PREV/NEXT 'd their way through ALL the .intr's pieces, AND (only) THEN, clicking the [NEXT] button will take you to do the next SLIDE (and move out of the interaction).
Anyone? Anything? OR... are we just now having to force our users into this UI/UX box?
Interactions Properties (window)
--> Player Playback (TAB) ==
O Interactive - user can advance in any order
[ ] Show previous and Next Buttons
O Linear - user must advance in order
Um, HOW do you "advance in any order" ?? (especially with PREV / NEXT buttons? ) -- Someone, please BLOW MY MIND!
