"Enter" Key allowing user to bypass restrictions in player/menu

Apr 15, 2022

Hello,  We have recently been made aware that in a storyline 360 (most of which were published in 2021) publish that has "restricted" navigation, including a "disabled" Next button until the timeline ends, that if a student times pressing the "Next" button and repeatedly (or sometimes holding down) the "Enter" key at about the same time, that they are able to skip all the way down the line of the presentation, skipping every single slide, all the way to the end.

Under normal operation, without doing that, they have to watch a slide until it reaches the end of it's timeline and can not skip ahead using the next button or the menu/outline.

Is there any insight into what is happening here?  Is this a known/unknown issue?

Thank you.
