Forward and back buttons

Jan 31, 2022

I want to use my own custom forward and back buttons to navigate - i have a slide with 5 layers shooting off.

How can i stop the user from clicking the forward buttons on each layer  quickly to navigate through the layers without actually reading the content?

Hi, Monica,

It's impossible to force someone to read the content. But you can force them to stay on a slide or layer for a given amount of time or until they complete an interaction.

If you have a separate forward button on each layer, you can adjust it on the timeline so it won't appear until near the end:

You can also use triggers, variables, and conditions to control when a given button appears.

This post is about controlling the built-in NEXT button, but the same concepts apply to custom buttons:
