Storyline 2: Customizing the Player at the Slide Level

Article Last Updated

This article applies to:

In a previous tutorial, you learned how to customize the Articulate Storyline player via the player properties window. But those customizations were applied to all slides in the course. Sometimes, you might want to customize the player for specific slides only. For example, if a slide contains a video, you might want to include a seekbar for that slide only.

In this tutorial, you'll learn how to customize the player for a single slide. Watch the video first, then follow the steps below to practice.

Practice Activity

Take a look at the following practice activities to learn how to customize the player elements available on particular slides.

  1. Go to a slide and open the slide properties from the base layer in the Slide Layers panel.
  2. Disable the Previous and Next buttons on the slide.
  3. Preview the slide.
  4. Restore the buttons and enable the seekbar.

Making modifications to specific slides is easy. Keep in mind that the changes you make at the slide level override the settings made in the course player. That means if you make changes to the course player, they may not impact the custom changes you made at the slide level.

In the next tutorial, you'll learn how to publish your course.
