It’s not uncommon to write a slide reset advanced action that returns everything that your learners may have previously modified. For example, your learners may have clicked on your interaction and shown some previously hidden objects, changed the values of some user variables and changed the state of objects that have retain state selected. Just create an on-enter advanced action that returns everything to its default condition.

Please mention the exact version number you are using and the OS.

Here is a link to one of the blogs where I compare two solutions for click/reveal:

I don’t understand the question very well. Slides have no states in Captivate, only objects. You have the choice to have all objects reset to the Normal state, or to keep the last state made visible when you revisit the slide. Look at the Properties panel of the multistate object for the option ‘Retain state when revisiting slide’.  Default has it not checked, if you want to keep the last shown state, please check that option.

I like this flexibility a lot. That makes using multistate object often a better choice than using Hide/Show for interactivity. have blogged many times about that.

Resetting a slide is different. I always use the On Enter event of the slide if it is necessary to restore the original situation or part of it. Would not like to have only the choice for a complete reset.
