In the previous tutorial we explored how to customize the Storyline player via the player properties window. Those changes are applied to all slides. However, there may be times when you need to customize the player for specific slides only. 

For example, the slide contains a video and you want to include a seekbar but you don't want the seekbar visible on all slides.

Watch this video first, then follow the steps below to practice.

Practice Activity

Here are a few practice activities to help you learn to customize the slide player.

  • Go to a slide and open the slide properties from the base layer in the Layers panel.
  • Disable the previous and next buttons on the slide.
  • Preview the slide.
  • Restore the buttons and enable the seekbar.

Making modifications to specific slides is relatively simple. 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.
