Custom menu button - Calling the built in menu from a bespoke button

Aug 01, 2017

The Menu button is simply too small for our users. Our user do not see it. So I want to add a custom button (when user click, it opens up the in-built menu).

It says here and here, that this cannot be done, but I am sure there must be a way... Anyone can help?

Hey Gil

Thanks for posting your question here in the E-Learning Heroes Forum. 

There's a few things you can try...

For starters, if you think the Menu text in the default player is too small, you can make the text bigger by going into your Player Properties and under Colors & Effects, increasing the Player font size from 100% to a higher number. 

Using the menu option from the default player is the only way to open up the built in menu option. Of course you could create your own menu on a slide master and your own custom menu button but that would take more time and development.

You can also check out these free downloads for custom menus.. perhaps one of these might work for you!?

Hope this is helpful :) Best of luck.
