Is there a way to conveniently advance announcement slides manually from within an announcement loop? Here's what I've got set up:

I've created several single-page cues and added them to the announcements library. I have two announcement loops, one that auto-advances and another that I would like to be able to manually advance. I've applied tags to the cues so they show up in the two different loops. The auto-advance loop works great through a script control. Using a script control for the manual-advance doesn't help. Is there a way to manually advance within a script control? Is there another option for inserting announcement loops?

Since the Announcements are not actually in the script, there is no way to Manually advance them using a Script Control. However, you can copy the announcements into the script and remove the timings (if any). You can then manually play them as needed.
