Now comes the big test! We're going to recreate the above example. In frame 1, make a button (if you need a refresher on how to make a button have a look at the tutorial). Assign a Stop action to Frame 1 by choosing Modify > Frame, selecting the Actions Tab, clicking on the '+' (plus) tab and selecting stop. Too easy.
Now in frame 5 place a keyframe and the some text like in the example. Finally you have to add the actions specified in this tutorial to the button. When you play your movie it will stop at frame 1. Nothing will happen until you trigger the action with a mouse click (remember the release action?). Once triggered, your movie will jump to frame 5 and continue playing.
Have a go and try some different statements and have fun!
Note: Before you play your movie Choose Control > Enable Buttons this will allow you to use your button without have to export your movie.
