Post subject: Re: Presentation should only advance on hyperlinks
Hi, thanks for posting here.
Actually, there is a more simple workaround than creating invisible forms. The issue is that iSpring software has it's own tools for setting the navigation in the output FlashMovie. Thus is in PowerPoint slides are set to "Change automatically after **sec" but iSpring Pro/Presenter has the active option "Advance animations on mouse click", a viewer will be able to advance slides on mouse click anywhere on the Flash slide irrespectively of the PowerPoint settings.
So if you don't need a viewer to skip slides, please do the following:
open your presentation in PowerPoint --> iSpring tab --> Publish --> Playback and Navigation tab --> Playback Options area --> mark "Change all slides automatically" and "Auto-play on-click animations" --> Mouse and Keyboard Navigation area --> UNMARK "Advance animations on mouse click". You can also disable keyboard navigation or leave it active and choose particular buttons to go from slide to slide (just click "Customize" button).
As for the external links issue, this problem can occur if your browser has security restrictions which do not allow to open the pop-up windows, or the security restrictions of Flash player plug-in do not allow opening URLs from locally placed Flash files. Thus is the FlashMovie is uploaded to the Internet (to any web page or blog), indeed hyperlinks should work correctly.
To resolve the problem with locally placed SWF files you can change the FlashPlayer restrictions. To do this, please go to Adobe site:

In the "Adobe Flash Player Settings Manager" window please click "Edit locations" --> choose "Add location" --> "Browse for files". After clicking Browse button please select the Flash file with problem slides.
I hope my answer was helpful.
