Articulate Storyline 3 video and pressed key issues.
Apr 06, 2019
Hello everyone, I hope you're doing fine.
Listen... I have 3 problems with Articulate Storyline 3. First one is the video slides after publishing my course as a web page (only html5). The playback of the whole slide which contains video is very laggy and sluggish. I'm using chrome btw. I don't have these issues when viewing my course in Articulate before publishing. So it only happens after publishing. When I switched to firefox browser I noticed the video played nicely but switching prom slide to slide in my course has a blinking effect.
The page disappears for a split of a second and the new one reappears. It's fast but you can see that and the immersion and user experience suffers greatly from that. It looks totally unprofessional. It's like Articulate is closing the current slide and building up the new one from a scratch. It looks funny when you have several slides one after the another and they all use the same background image. Each time the background image is being reloaded a new. On chrome this is smooth and I don't see any blinking effects.
Btw - when I looked into my published folder the same image is saved several times. Can't it be saved only once and then used on various slides? It looks like each slide has a copy of the same image. Not very wise when it comes to course size after publishing.
One more thing... I considered publishing as a CD and view it by a player. But after publishing, I noticed my slide triggers don't work. After publishing they're changed to player triggers in the triggers section (another thing I noticed). I've keymapped some slide actions. When you press the Right or Left arrow key on your keyboard you go to the next or previous slide. These work while publishing as a webpage or in build in preview mode but fail to work when I publish as a CD. The left, right, up and down arrow keys are reserved in the player to position the course content inside the player. Is there a way to make them work? I don't want to switch to other keys since the arrows are pretty much very intuitive. And the positioning option is not needed since the course displays itself pretty centered without any problems.
Thanks a lot in advance,
