a flash embeded movie will not let me go to the next slide in ppt.

Hi,
I am using Powerpoint on a PC at work and I embedded a flash movie on slide
1. I went to properties and looked at all the settings, made sure play was
set to true. When I try to play the presentation, after finishing the flash
animation (flash plays fine in ppt by the way) on slide 1, it will not go on
to slide 2. I tried to even put an invisible button over the flash object,
but it still will not move on to the next slide. Slide 2 & 3 have no flash on
it and go to the next slide upon clicking manually fine, the problem is just
slide 1.

Does anyone know why it will not proceed to slide 2 after it plays flash in
Powerpoint? Anyone have any suggestions/solutions?

Greatly appreciate any help!

Thanks

-M

Don't have a flash sample here so I can't exactly test it out. Would like to
ask though, have you set the slide to advance automatically? Click Slide Show
Slide Transition. Put a checkmark on Advance automatically after. And the
time at 00:00, or 5 seconds after the flash has completed playing.

If you are running on kiosk mode, invisble linking may helps too:

Hi,

thanks! that actually worked. Though I think my boss wants it to go to the
next slide upon mouse click, not automatically, which still did not work.
do you know how to do that?

Click Slide Show > Slide Transition. Is the Advance slide On mouse click
checked?

I checked "ON mouse click" option and also the "Advance Automatically
option", and it only advanced to the next slide automatically. I tried then
to unclick "Advanced Automatically" and only have the "On mouse click" and
it didn't work.

Is the flash covering the entire screen?

yes it does cover the entire screen. I recommended to my company that they do
not do that b/c it works fine if you click outside the flash object.

Yes, that's what stopping it advance... You will have to leave some space for
clicking. Clicking on the flash won't get the slide to advance. If you want
to have it full screen, then try pressing enter key instead for advance.

yes, I also came to that conclusion. It does advance to the next screen if
you have a mouse with a scroll on it. Or if you do not make the flash object
the entire size of the screen and leave some room for clicking.

thanks for all your help.

"...then try pressing enter key instead for advance"
YaaaaY!!! That worked. Now all I have to do is get the rest of the
operators on the show to remeber to hit enter instead of any other advance
key they are used to. Thank you SO much.
