Changing Click Next to Advance

Apr 26, 2012


I have a presentation with a number of hyperlinks that jump from and return to a specific slide.  I have put a return  button on the slides that have been "jumped to."   Those slides are designated as advance by user in the properties which is causing the message "Click Next to Advance" to appear in the bar at the bottom of the slide.

Is there any way that I can make "Click Next to Advance" disappear or change it to "Click Return Button to Continue?"

Hi Swarna, are you referring to the "Click Next to Advance" phrase on the seekbar? That wording will appear as soon as the slide duration completes. If you don't have any audio or animations already on your slide (which would affect the slide duration), you can change the default duration by going to the Articulate menu and choose Presentation Options and then click the Publish tab. There is a setting there called "Slides without audio or animations display for __ seconds." You can change the value there to tighten up the slide duration. Does that help?

Hi Swarna, thanks for clarifying. I'm sorry, there's not a way to make the message appear sooner than 5 seconds, which is the default timing. If there is narration or a movie in your interaction that is longer than 5 seconds, the message will appear as soon as that media completes. Our dev team appreciates feature requests, though, so if you'd like to see an option for making the message appear sooner than 5 seconds, I encourage you to share your suggestions via the feature request form. Thanks!
