Random means there is no rhyme or reason to the order. For instance you would assume when you push the down arrow it would advance downward to the second option but it doesn't it goes sideways instead. Illogical!,,,,,,,to say the least. Oh and by the way, yes I have the lower linked button as the second button in the diagram portion of the program. In other words, the second chapter and subsequent three are directly below the first as they were placed and linked sequentically. Why the down arrow selection directs the users to the 5th chapter I don't know. That's the radomness, Needless to say I have had next creator three years and have never been able to figure this issue out. While DVDit isn't supported anymore in my opinion it was a much better product for creating menus and user friendly buttons.
