do not want default navigation button when revisiting

Feb 24, 2014


Q1 sorry that I forgot my password for this forum once activate my account , possible email to me, can?

Q2 I do the some multiple choice slides with customer prev/next button and untick the default prev/next button in the bottom for whole lesson. If choose the "reset to intial state" when revisiting is fine. but when I choose the "resume saved state", the default prev/next button will come up in the bottom unexpectedly when revisiting .

I need to set "resume saved state", but how can hidden/remove the default prev/next button will come up in the bottom when revisiting?

Hi Jovi and welcome to Heroes! 

When revisiting or reviewing question slides that have already been submitted (answered), you'll still see the Prev/Next buttons even if they've been disable. Please review this article for more informationIf you'd like to have an option to disable the Prev and Next buttons during quiz review so you can use your own custom navigation buttons, please let us know. We value your feedback.

I've also heard of users who removed all the player buttons (submit, volume control, seekbar, etc.) that would appear on the bottom, and then the prev/next buttons will have no place to display and are therefore not shown during a review or a revisit.

I don't really understand:

Since your set up is somewhere in the middle, I modified my file to include my own next button on the review layer - and to get the layer to appear you'll first need to add something within the "feedback and branching" section while editing the quiz. You can remove it once the layer is created. Also, you can choose to hide the submit button use the "eye" icon from within the timeline of the base layer objects.

The feedback and branching section is within the question editor at the bottom for every quiz question. Correct and incorrect are created automatically, and if you add information the "Post quiz Review"  you'll see a new layer created. Did you take a look at the second .story file I shared there with Diana? 

She did not want the built in next/prev buttons - although they'll appear by default, unless as in Diana's scenario she removed all player elements on the bottom such as volume, seekbar, etc. So, I added custom buttons that only appear on the review layer.

Hi Jessie,

Yes, SL2 has the same behavior documented here. 

I just tested the file I created for Diana in SL1 and upgraded it to SL2, to see, and having the volume/seekbar/etc. removed allowed for me to continue to use my built in "next" button on the review layer - so it all seems to be the same. 

I found that I needed to ensure that as well as having all player features turned off, I also needed to turn off all previous, next AND submit buttons in storyview, in order for the bottom edge of the player to become thin and therefore the quiz review previous and next buttons are no longer viewable.   Thought this might help someone.

Hi, I know this is an older thread, but I'm looking for a way to disable the Prev and Next buttons when revisiting a quiz slide. I have the navigation built into the frame and I don't use the Prev/Next buttons at all throughout the course, however, I do use the seekbar on audio slides. Is there any sort of workaround to make these Prev/Next buttons go away since I already have built in navigation to take care of the slide revisit?
