Changing slide default display time

Jul 09, 2013

Hi, I've been looking for an answer to this question but I couldn't find nothing.

Does anyone know how to change the default display time of all the slides at once?

I have a course without audio and I would like all the slides to display for a minimum of 15 seconds before the user is able to skip to the next slide (restricted navigation). Right now it seems to be set on 5 seconds, and I can't find a way to change this other than dragging the timeline to 15 seconds in every slide.

Thank you for your help.

Welcome to the community, Andrea!

I'm sorry, but there really isn't a way to modify the time for multiple timelines in a project at once. I do understand why this would be a pretty helpful option, but at the moment this isn't something available. If you would like to see more options for controlling the timeline for multiple slides, please consider sharing your suggestion with our development team.

In the meantime, if you'd like to work with multiple slides and keep their timelines similar, it might be helpful to do this at the beginning of a project. For instance, if you create a new slide in a new project and set the time along with any slide-specific triggers, you can duplicate that slide and then add your new content. You can keep that slide as your "go to" slide for new slides and remove it when the project is complete. I know this isn't exactly what you're looking for, but hopefully it'll save you some time in the future :)

Thanks and welcome again, Andrea!
