custom menu with unlocks using variables not working as needed
I have to work with a menu within the slides themselves. My company requires this. So I cannot use the Storyline 2 menu functions.
Every slide has a menu layer therefore, but I do not want people to move ahead in the course. I do however want people to be able to move back and forth on the slides they already visited.
So I thought about using a True/False variable for each slide. My idea was that as soon as I go to the next slide, the appropriate variable goes to True which then unlocks this next slide in the menu of all the previous slides. However, this doesn't seem to be working. My guess is that the variable gets reset to False when I go back to a previous slide.
The trigger I set for the variable is that the unlock for the next slide is triggered at the end of the time line of the current slide. But when I go to the next slide and go back to the previous slide the menu item is not unlocked. That's why I assume that by going back to the beginning of that slide the unlock is also reset.
I guess I just wonder how I can stop it from resetting or if there is another way of doing this.
