goto specific slide at end of slide



WITHOUT clicking on a hyperlink or something that directs powerpoint to goto
a specific slide....

the slide has several objects with timings
once the user has clicked and run through all the objects, powerpoint will
automatically jump to next next slide

what i need:
when all the objects have been run through on the slide, and the user is
still clicking, i want to jump to a specific slide

i've tried, but dont see any way to do it, except to have a button that the
user must click to jump to the specific slide. but sometimes the user keeps
clicking and powerpoint simply jumps to the next sequential slide.

There are a couple of possible things I can think of:

(1) Custom shows might be your best bet. If you create a custom show and
your initial link is to get into the custom show, it doesn't matter what
order the slides are in for the main presentation; it just matters the
order for the custom show.

(2) Hidden slides are probably not what you want, but they could work.
If you are on slide 4 and want to go to slide 6, if slide 4 and 6 are
not hidden and slide 5 is, when slide 4 is done, it will go to slide 5.

(3) A mouse over action setting might do the trick. I believe that if
you have the last animation in your sequence be for an entrance effect
of an object that covers the whole screen (it could be a 99% transparent
object so no one ever sees it) and that object has a mouse over action
setting to hyperlink to another slide, it will do what you want. I
believe I need to credit John Wilson for this trick.
