Custom Keyboard Shortcuts Fail To Work

Aug 13, 2015

Hello. I am trying to get 508 to work in Storyline, and testers here tell me that the Left/Right arrows must work for previous and next button functionality. I tried to create a custom keyboard shortcut on the master slide to get Storyline to do that, and these fail to work. Here is the tempshare:

Hi David! This is actually an issue that has been raised with our QA Team and they are looking into this. Seems that unless you click back on the slide to re-gain focus, then the navigation does not work.

I will share this thread with them for awareness and so that I can update when applicable. 

As a workaround you can apply the trigger to the navigation buttons and slide.

Thanks for the update. I tried moving the triggers from the Master Slide to the regular slides and it still did not work for me, although maybe I do not understand what you mean Leslie. The way I am doing it now is to create a trigger>Advance to Slide>Next Slide>User Presses a Key>Left/Right button>the Slide. Is there another way I can setup the trigger to make it work?
