Adding Multiple Click-based Animations on a Screen with Adobe Captivate 5

You are creating a simulation-based course and you need to demonstrate a couple of related workflows which include just about six to eight steps each. You are not convinced to create separate screens for such small demonstrations. So, what should you do?

    Assign cpCmndGotoSlide with rdinfoCurrentSlide

    This would be functional on any slide.
