Need help.. =/ Nothing works
Oct 14, 2012
I have videos in my slides, and at the end of each one, the user should have to click to continue.. so I put a button that fills the screen and make it invisible.
The first problem is that the hand symbol is constantly there, I can't make my video un-clickable, is there any way to do this?
Also, this button does not work 6/7 times. Clicking at the end of the first slide's video just restarts that slide over and over, though eventually it will go to the next one.
That's in preview atleast. After publishing, it only plays the first half a second of the slide, and repeats over and over when clicked indefinitely.
I also need to make mouse over buttons with images.. the lack of control and undos etc makes image placement a complete nightmare in this software, but complaining aside, I set up the only apparent way to make this work.. so I put my image on a second layer above, add an oval hotspot which is set to reveal this layer on mouseover.
It does not. No image appears.
I noticed the timeline is at different lengths when you are on different layers which is a bit bizarre.. I made sure the image was lined up with that specific area of the end of the slide with some overlap to no avail.
I found the rollover buttons in the States tab for normal buttons, though it actually doesn't seem to work either.. I make all the buttons No Fill and No Lines so I can have my image only come in with the mouse over (it's basically things in the video lighting up), but when I roll the mouse over this button, absolutely nothing happens..
I also seem completely unable to find any form of feedback on video length whatsoever and they just randomly resize as they please.. The only solution I can possibly find to restore a video to it's original length is to delete everything in the slide and re-import it, totally nuts.. =/
Anyhow, if anyone has solutions for this problems, you will save me a lot of pain as currently the software appears to be so broken it is unusable like it's in Alpha testing..
Thanks for your time,
Edit: OK, it's actually starting to freak me out now. If I disable visibility or even move the position of any video, in Preview it's ALWAYS centred, and ALWAYS visible. Also no buttons can show on top of my video even though they are the top layers.
