Locking the Progress Bar

I would like to lock the progress bar so that users cannot seek ahead in a slide. But the lock function locks all controls except pause/play. Is there a way to lock the progress/seek bar and keep the forwards/backwards buttons and the slide select controls in the outline tab?

Thanks for any tips.

Hello Stephen - In PowerPoint, go to your Articulate menu and choose Player Templates > Player Controls. You'll see a checkbox called "Allow user to seek within seekbar" and you can unmark that. This will keep the seekbar visible but if learners try to click in the seekbar to scrub through the duration of the slide, nothing will happen. Is that what you're looking for?
