In full screen mode (F11), can I disable (Left click => Next Page)

Hello people,

I'm currently designing the mock-up of a software using Visio. I have
created hyperlinks between the different templates, so clicking on a button
(when you're in full-screen mode, like a PowerPoint) will get you to the
desired page.

In this case, I find it uncomfortable that when you make a left click
anywhere on the template, Visio sends you to the next page. Is there a way to
disable this ? I will be testing the mock-up soon with real users, so I need
it to work like if it were real software. They just can't click anywhere and
have the screen change ;-)

Thanks a lot,

A bit of a nuisance isn't it!
Solution, create a shape that covers the whole page, make it a
transparent, send it to the back (menu Shape -> Order -> Send to back)
then insert a hyperlink and link it to the current page. Copy this to
all pages and adjust the hyperlink.

Great solution, hadn't seen it before !

Kind regards,

I like that solution, but I don't want to change the hyperlink on every
page. Is there a way to say "link this page back to itself..."?

Props to Paul for a sick solution.

Automatic "self-linking" can be made like this:

1. Select shape
2. Add a hyperlink to the current page (ie: "Page-1")
3. Go to Window > Show ShapeSheet
4. In the SubAddress cell, add overwrite the formula with =PAGENAME()
5. Make sure your formula wasn't quoted by Visio

You can drop this shape on any page now, and it will pick up it's
containing page and link to it..

Export to HTML

Another option to consider is saving the file as HTML and viewing in your browser full screen. Go to File > Save as Web Page. It may not look quite as crisp as viewing within Visio, but it prevents the auto advance problem and is great for sharing with folks who don't have Visio installed.
