Presenter '13: Working with the Player

Article Last Updated

This article applies to:

In Articulate Presenter, the term "player" refers to the controls that frame your slides. It has several options, such as a clickable menu, a seekbar, a glossary, a button for supplemental resources, player controls, and more. You can even customize the colors on the player. Or, if you plan to use custom navigation buttons, you can go chromeless with an invisible player.

It's easy to use Presenter's Player Properties to customize the look of the player. Check out these examples to see how different players can change the way a course looks:

To access the player settings, click the Articulate tab on the PowerPoint ribbon, and then select Player.

The Player Properties window appears where you can customize just about any part of the player, or even switch to a different player. See these tutorials for details:
