Auto-Exit/Auto-Close

Is there a way to make the final screen in a Camtasia 2019 (Win) project exit/close automatically, so the user doesn't need to do anything more? We're outputting a SCORM 1.2 package to an Oracle LMS. I recall that this happened by default in earlier versions of Camtasia but I don't seem to find that feature in the 2019 version.
Thanks in advance!

I'm not sure what version that feature would have existed in. But I'm sure you are correct about it being an option.

Likely it would have only been an option if producing using the TechSmith Smart Player. My guess is that it disappeared because it relied on some JavaScript to close the window. And doing that is very problematic and fails more often than it works. I believe JavaScript is only capable of closing a window that was opened using JavaScript. And even then, the window doesn't silently disappear, but a message pops up advising the user that the script is trying to close the window and asking if they wish to proceed. So since they are already prompted, may as well just allow them to click the X that is there to close the window.

Cheers... Rick :)

Thanks Rick! We'll have to trust that they know how to close open windows!

I am seeing this issues... meaning the window is automatically closing... but I don't want it to. Did you every figure out how to control it?
