Not sure how to do this . . . (Jeanette's tutorial??)

May 05, 2012

I've inserted link at the top of my player with our company name. I want to create/open a slide (really an overlay that is say 30% black) with some information about our company (logo, contact info, etc). I want it to open over any slide. I obviously don't want it in the menu; I just want it to close when the use clicks. I saw this in, I think, a tutorial that Jeanette did. Can't find it again, though. Any idea how I can put it together?

Hi Al,

The easiest way to do this is to create a slide containing your company logo, contact information etc.  It is best to create this slide in a separate screne so that it is not linked to any of the slides in your main story.

Once this is done, go back and into the Player and edit the link comany name link you created.

Change the Action to Lightbox slide and select the slide that you created that contains all of the company information.

 When the user clicks the link, the slide will open as a lightbox on top of the main slides. The only issue with this method is that you can't make the background partially transparent.
