Formatting Questions Player Defaults

Nov 01, 2017

Hi there,

Now I am wondering for quite a while whether I missed out on how to freely create quizzes to your likes and needs in storyline without working a massive amount of hours on them creating every itsy bit by yourself.

Because just adjusting the player colors or using presets doesn't work for me!

It didn't work in Storyline 2 and it seems to be just for looks there in Storyline 3 as well.

If you have a look on the attached screenshots- it is never possible for me to remove that default teal hover from and this forces me to skip a lot of variations on questions and/ or create own format questions.

Do I overlook something? Why does the hover color not change into what I set it to be in the player?

Thank you in advance.

Hi Lya,

The player control colors will only modify the colors associated with player buttons and actions like the next/previous, seekbar, etc. If you want to modify the hover color you need to do so from the theme colors.  When looking at the theme colors - Custom 2 is what you'll want to change. 

I do know that there is a new issue with the hover color on some drop down style questions not respecting the custom color only in HTML5. Our team is looking into the fix for this, and right now it does work on a matching drag and drop, but is still not working in HTML5 output for a sequence drag and drop. 

Hopefully that helps you out - and give you a few more question type options!

Hi there, Lya!

To follow up on Alyssa's post ☝️ I'm so excited to let you know that we just released update 3 for Storyline 3! You can view all the new features and fixes here.

One of the fixes addresses an issue where customized hover color for drag items and drop-down questions would not show in the published HTML5 output.

Here’s where you can download and install the latest version of Storyline 3. Let us know if you have any questions!
