Storyline 1: Working with the Player

Article Last Updated

This article applies to:

In Articulate Storyline, we use the term "player" to mean the interface that appears around the perimeter of your slides. It can include all sorts of things, such as a clickable menu, a seekbar, slide notes, a glossary, a button for supplemental course resources, player controls such as a forward button and back button, and more. You can even customize the player with specific colors. Or, for a completely chromeless look, you can make the player invisible — which is a nice option if you plan to build all the course navigation buttons on your own, using objects and triggers on your slides.

It's easy to use Storyline's Player Properties to make the player look exactly the way you want. Here are just a few examples of how different players can change the way a course looks:

You can access the settings related to the player by clicking the Home tab on the Storyline ribbon and then selecting Player.

The Player Properties window appears, where you can customize just about any facet of the player and its features, or switch to a different player if you choose. The following tutorials will show you how:
