DVD Architect Highlight Chapter Menu Selection

After playing a selected chapter from a DVDA menu, is there a way for the chapter text on the main menu to remain highlighted after the chapter is played? The default operation will highlight the first chapter in my menu selection after a chapter is played. I've never liked this operation when playing individual chapters so I thought I would finally look into it. Thanks.

You can change the end action of the video to point to any menu and any option on that menu.

Re: DVD Architect Highlight Chapter Menu Selection

Thanks Edward. I've tried setting the end actions for a menu item but I can't seem to find a way to create the action I described.

After choosing and playing a chapter, I want to return to the menu with the chapter text/button that was just played still highlighted.

I must be missing something so can you give me a little more detail?

Got it! I was overlooking the "menu" choice in destination.

Yes, you have to set both the menu and the item on the menu to be selected. Glad you found it.
