An Encore "watchamacallet" question

Yep.. I really don't know what you call this, so let me explain what
I'm trying to figure out.

I am authoring a simple DVD that has a main menu which has 6 buttons. When you press the button1, it takes you to a short video. The end action after playing that video is that it goes back to the main menu. You can than manually use the arrow keys to scroll to any other button. Currently when it goes back to the main menu.... button 1 is the highlighted button.

What I would really like it to do, is once the viewer watches movie 1, and after it goes back to the main menu... I would like Button 2 to be the highlighted button. Than they could simply hit play and it would then play video2.

Is this watchamacallet action possible to do in encore cs3? Thanks for any help you give - Carl

From the Properties panel for the short video's timeline, set the End Action to explicitly go back to the menu with the desired button highlighted. It'll look something like this: MenuName:Button2
