Why won't my hint caption show the whole time?

Nov 18, 2014

I am new to the software, and I've tried everything I can think of to make my hint captions show 100% of the time on the slide.  My users won't know that they need to hover over the interaction in order to see the hint.  Any ideas?  I already have them set to be showing the whole time, but for some reason that isn't working.  Any help would be appreciated!

On each slide, you'd need to do as Leslie suggests.  You'd change the Show Layer "Hint Caption" to appear when the timeline for the hotspot begins.  


Note:  I'm looking at your file and it appears that you've altered a few things that may cause some issues.  For example, on the third slide, it looks like you've added another numeric entry onto the "type 4" layer.  You don't need this as that's really just your caption layer.  Also, your Try Again layer is no longer functioning as it looks like you changed it from being a question slide (Text Entry) to a normal slide?  At least that's what I'm seeing.

With only 32 slides, I'd be tempted to reinsert the sequence again and make the show always selection before inserting.  You might find that starting fresh will clear up a number of things.
