I have not found a toggle for pause once the IV animated slideshow has been created, . .

Is there a way to have that ?

Slide advancement options - if automatic, you can move backwards and forwards
with a left click or right click, otherwise the slideshow will continue and loop.

If you select 'automatic' or 'random' after mouse/keyboard input', the pictures will run singly
with a mouse click.

You can stop the animation by pressing the Pause key on your keyboard.
To kick it off again, just click on the screen and it will play/loop.

You're welcome, Jove.

Forgot to mention, when you pause with Pause key, it will start again either by
clicking on the screen, or pressing the Esc key.

And finally.....

Pressing Esc while the file is running exits the program.

Pause / Esc / Esc, also exits the program.

Pause / Esc is OK, however many times you do it, to pause the animation and restart it.

You're supposed to be able to press the Pause key again to resume, but it does not work for me.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Music with your slideshow:

If you put an .mp3 first in the list and do not loop the slideshow, it will play all the way through,
when the images stop.

If you put it somewhere in the list, it does not start, until it is reached, but then plays through.

If you do loop the slideshow, then when the program reaches the .mp3, it starts again,
so if you want a looping slideshow, the timing of the .mp3 has to equal the time taken to
display the images. I haven't found a way to loop and have the .mp3 running all the way through.

It's because it's looking at a list which you have specified, therefore when it gets to the .mp3 in the list,
it just acts accordingly and plays it. It doesn't care that it hasn't finished yet, it starts again.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It's really good for creating your own screensavers, with or without music; same restrictions as above,
but nice if you just want lots of your own images and don't want to take the risk of dodgy
screensaver downloads; and there are many.

I have tried the Pause on the second stroke and it does work for restarting, I have noticed that it doesn't always though.

Thanks for the tips Pete, nice to know,
