I'm working on a presentation that is to be used by a variety of people as a resource to look up information (primarily new people).

My query is this. I would like the user to use a navigation menu that I have provided to be able to skip forth onto slides that are of use to them, and to divert any which they do not need to know.

I would like to disable the event that is automatically triggered by the Enter key when the presentation is open. Would this be possible to achieve in Powerpoint, maybe using VBA, and if so how?

If this is not possible, can I divert the user to a different slide when they press the enter key, so that they do not have to scroll through 20 slides to exit?

Any help appreciated. Hope you can help.

Take a look at this link on page 8. Check browse in kiosk to disable enterkey and mouseclick. Be sure to create your own navigation buttons.

Thanks. I didn't realise I could switch this off so simply.
