Restart Button Doesn't Restart

Postby Bruce » Tue Nov 25, 2008 7:07 pm

At the end of a tutorial, I add a restart button, select to play at frame zero. screen goes blank and no replay.
I've uninstalled V2 and reinstalled still the same problem, any suggestions?
Here's an example:

Thanks for your time.

You will need to create a "Frame Label" on frame 1 rather than frame 0.

Here are the steps to create a Restart Button.....

1. Create a Frame Label on Frame 1
2. Go to the Special Button "Add Event" option and remove the "Goto Frame "0" " option
3. Go to the Add Event option and then the Goto Frame label that you created for going to frame 1 in the drop down list
4. Then add a play event after the "Goto Frame 1" event you added in the Event options

Here is a link to our User Guide to provide more help. ... rGuide.pdf

Here is information on creating a frame label if you are not familiar.

To add a frame label to a frame:
Quick Tip: Frame labels can be added to a frame to give you more control for viewer interaction on determining where the viewer will be directed along the Timeline during playback. This can be an essential element in an effective Viewlet demonstration.

- Select the frame where the label will be inserted.
- Right click and select Insert frame label from the shortcut menu.
- A Frame Label window displays. Type a name for the label in the field provided.
-Click OK. A small circle will display on the selected frame on the Timeline indicating the frame label has been added.

Thanks! I didn't need to do that in version 1 but din't think about trying that in 2.
I tried as you said with the same results. Tim I guess I didn't read it well enough, but the second time around I got it.
So thanks for the help.
thanks and Happy Holidays.
