10.3 Delay options for pages
Every page can have a delay option. If a page has a delay option set, a timer icon
will appear next to it in the page manager dialog. You can choose between the following
- ‘No wait’
Page doesn't have any delay option.
- ‘Wait milliseconds’
If you choose this delay option, you will have to enter the time to wait
in der numeric widget below. The time must be entered in milliseconds.
1000 milliseconds equal one second.
- ‘Wait presenter’
Wait until the user presses the forward key defined in the project
properties. By default, the down cursor and page down keys are used
as forward keys. See Project properties dialog for details.
- ‘Wait left mouse’
Wait for left mouse button
- ‘Wait right mouse’
Wait for right mouse button
- ‘Wait space key’
Wait for space key
- ‘Sync with timeline’
If you choose this option, the page will be shown once the time in
milliseconds that you enter in the widget below has elapsed on the global
timeline. See the chapter on Creating a timeline
for more information.
You can also configure when the delay should be executed. The following
modes are available here:
- ‘Before showing page’
The delay will be executed before showing the page.
- ‘After showing page’
The delay will be executed after showing the page.
- ‘Before showing next page’
The delay will be executed before showing the next page.
If you tick the "Start timeline on this page" checkbox, the global timeline
will be reset to 0 whenever Designer reaches this page. See Timelines for details.
