Selective pop-up in slide

Postby Krall » Thu Jul 05, 2012 11:28 pm

Here is what I would like to do.
I have a presentation and every few slides I pose a question to the audience. There are two buttons, YES and NO, to which I can move the cursor and click. If I click on YES, I want to pop up one message; if NO, then a different message. The next mouse click should take us to the next slide.

In Powerpoint you can do this by going to a specific slide on which is a RETURN button which takes you back to the question slide -- similar to a subroutine. I found out last year, that this subroutine behavior is not possible in IMPRESS; that is why I am trying the alternate approach of a selective pop-up.

Any ideas.

Impress can link to different slides and show a clickable button for jumping.

What I don't think is supported is a link to the "slide I was previously viewing". I think a link the the "previous slide" means the slide before this one in the list of numbered slides.

Of course you can do this with links to specific slides, but it's going to get messy if you ever have to change slide order or add slides in the middle.

A similar problem arose on this Forum some time ago. From memory the key words on which to search are "flash cards". I think there might also be a template or extension to accomplish such a task.

 Edit: This extension may be helpful

Still worth searching the Forum for "flash cards" (search box top right of Forum screen).

Thanks for the suggestions.
I will look into them.
And, yes, the use of specific links will get very messy.
Maybe I am naive, but "slide I was previously viewing" seems like a useful feature for a future version of Impress.
For now, I may simply use Powerpoint, which does support "slide I was previously viewing."
