INTRODUCTION

You can add action buttons to your slides that allow you to move back and forth to other slides during the presentation. For example, if you want to refer back to an important chart on the first slide in the presentation, you can add action buttons to other slides that allow you to jump back to the first slide whenever you need to.

TIP

Action Button Ideas

You can use action buttons in a variety of ways. For example, if your presentation is self-viewing, you can insert Next Slide and Previous Slide buttons that take the user back or forward a slide as the user reads at his or her own pace.

TIP

Moving and Resizing Action Buttons

You can move and resize action buttons just as you do other slide objects. See Part 5 to learn more about working with slide objects.

TIP

Activating a Program

You can use the Run Program option in the Action Settings dialog box to associate a program with the action button. When clicked, the button activates the program. You'll need to enter the path location of the program you want to execute, and the program must reside on the same drive or network as the slide show file.
