Using keybord to navigate

After exporting a file to HTML5, is it possible for users to use a keyboard to navigate during the presentation/course? For example, arrow keys to go to next and preview slide, enter or spacebar to pause, etc.

Hi Pio,

It’s possible to do that in ActivePresenter by using Key Strokes in Slide Master and adding events-actions to these Key Strokes.
Below are the steps for you to perform:

  • In Slide Master (View tab > Slide Master), insert Key Stroke (Insert tab > Key Stroke).

  • In the Properties pane > Interactivity tab:
    – Set the correct value for the Key Stroke by pressing a key on the keyboard;
    – Select Infinite for the Attempts option.
    – Add event-action to the Key Stroke;
    – Uncheck the Pause presentation to wait for user input and Report ID options.

Note: You need to use a True/False variable for the Space key, resize and set No Line for the Key Strokes to make them hidden.
