How to Rename Control Buttons in the Presentation Player

If you are creating a course in a language other than English, you may want to make not only your course content but also the course’s control buttons (like “forward” and “back”) appear in the target language. Or you may want rename the control buttons for other reasons, such as making them match the specific theme of your presentation or express your humor and creativity. Happily, both iSpring Pro and iSpring Quizmaker enable you to relabel the control buttons to say whatever you desire. You can also save each set of changes you have made, called a “custom language preset,” to use on any future courses.

These changes are made at the publishing stage of the process:

  1. 1 Click Publish on the iSpring tab. The Publish Presentation window will open.
  2. 2

    Go to the General tab and click on the Customize button in the Player field.

    This will open a new window called the “Customize Player” window.

  3. 3

    Click on Text Labels in the toolbar at the top:

    A list of text labels that can be fine-tuned will appear on the left side of the window. You now have the option to click on any one of them individually and change it.

  4. 4

    Type what you want the new label to say:

    For example, suppose you want to change the “NEXT” button to the Spanish term “SIGUIENTE” and the “PREV” button to the Spanish word “ANTERIOR.” Click on each of those terms in the Message column and type the new words:

    Notice that once you change a label, the Preset field changes to say Custom Preset. You can now save your custom preset:

  5. 5Click on the disk symbol to the right of the Preset field.
  6. 6 Type a name into the Save As field that will open:

    To apply the new preset to another course, follow the same steps of clicking Publish → General → Customize → Text Labels. Then click the drop-down arrow in the Preset field and select the custom preset you saved.
