Click boxes are areas on the slide where the user must click before the next action can take place. You can use click boxes to demonstrate an application’s functionality, for example, by placing them on menus or buttons where the user must click. You can determine what happens after the user performs a successful click. For example, the project can advance to the next slide, open a URL, or send an e-mail message.
After you have added a click box to your project, you can view and edit its properties using Properties pane. To view the properties of a click box in relation with other interactive objects in the project, select Properties pan > Actions.
