How do I keep Master Slide Buttons showing as "Selected?"

Hi Heroes,

I am creating a ADA Section 508 complaint course by allowing the learner to select their navigation path to 508 compliant slides or non-508 slides. I am doing this with a variable the learner can change by selecting one of two button I put on the slide master. Same option with narration (audio) on or off.

The client said "fine, like the approach, BUT, we want the selected option to show on each slide."

I tried using a trigger on the Master slide to change the state of the buttons to the "Selected" states, but that did not work.


Thanks, Rick

On the master slide, add four slide triggers, that change the state of the buttons to their respective Normal or Selected states, based on the value of your 508 and Audio variables. Also, I would organize the buttons into two button sets, so that the buttons interlock OR combine the separate on/off buttons into states of the same button and toggle between them. That way, you would have only two buttons (508 and Audio), instead of four.

Hi Michael,

Thanks so much for replying. I already tried what you suggested about adding the triggers (attached file again). The problem is, when I advance to the next slide, the buttons revert back to their Normal state. I need to keep them showing their Selected state throughout the course.

Also, not to sure what combining the buttons into sets does. Does that make each set one big "toggle" switch?
