      Hi! I built a chapter menu in Encore CS5. It works great if you are clicking on a computer. On a DVD player, one of the buttons gets skipped every time. I have the buttons manually numbered 1 to 14. Number 4 gets skipped (3 skips to 5, but you can’t go back to 4). Nothing looks different for this one than all of the other buttons (that I can tell), but it skips it every time. Any idea why?Additionally, even though I have the buttons numbered sequentially, at the bottom of the list, 9 skips to 11, but you can go back up to 10. Also, if you are going up from the bottom, 13 skips to 11.

      I’m a total noob and soooo confused. Can you help? Thanks!

      Hi Mike,

      The help screen you need to look up is all about ‘routing’

      http://help.adobe.com/en_US/encore/cs/using/WS74BC1059-66C3-46c5-9FA6-78DF10B38353.html

      In ENCORE, click the ‘Show Button Routing button at the bottom of the menu viewer. It’s tiny and looks like a square in a square with teeny tiny arrows pointing out in compass directions. Once you see the routing for each button you can click and drag on the routing info to connect buttons.

      I couldn’t find a useful YouTube video that illustrates what I mean.

      Thanks, Bruce! That really helped. Odd that something that can so dramatically impact your project seems so hidden.

      Very frustrating. But thank you for your excellent advice. My DVD lives!!!

       I agree, button routing does seem rather hidden for such an important aspect of a project. I ran into the same sort of problem you described a couple of years ago, in CS3, after duplicating buttons, renaming them etc. but not paying attention to the button number or the routing. Suddenly my project was a wreck! Glad pointer worked out for you  !
