Camtasia 9: user selects how they want to continue in tutorial and jump to a time point

Hi,

I am creating tutorials and at some point, I want to ask users how they want to continue and make them click on the screen:
  •  Continue on Platform 1 (recommended)
  •  Continue on Platform 2
With answer 1, the video would continue.
With answer 2, the video would jump to a later point the timeline.

I tried with the interactivity feature, but there is no correct answer, so I'm not sure that it is what I need really.

Thanks for your help!

use hotspots

for 1 use a stop at end click to continue

for 2 use a go-to-time or go-to-marker hotspot

always add the hotspots [interactive content] as the last step in editing your projects

otherwise, subsequent timeline cuts or inserts will break any go-to-time or go-to-marker hotspots that are located down-timeline from the cuts/inserts

no

Camtasia interactive content [hotspots, TOC, captions, quizzes] only work when the video is played using the TechSmith smart player

however, you can host on Screencast.com and all interactive content will work
