Creating a progress bar is easy with the new slide numbers
I love having a progress bar in my Storyline courses.
Looking trough existing discussions this is mostly realized with variables and states. Not very complicated but a lot of work when creating 20 states and variables for it. These discussions have often a lot of replies, so I presume I'm not the only one who likes a simple progress bar.
I used the new built-in variables for page numbers and progress and created a progress bar, based on a slider. It's easy to develop and easy to maintain and re-use.
Insert > Slider
Format your slider with Slider Tools > Format
Rename your variable under Slider Tools > Design (by default it is called slider#), I called it ProgressBar.
Add a trigger:
Variable > Menu.Progress
When: Timeline starts (on slide)
An example is on the master slide in attached example.
