it proceeds there with "resume saved state"?

Hi Paul

not sure I understand what you mean by this statement.  Can you share the .story file and let us know which slide has the issue?

Hi Wendy

I haven't created the storyline as I am already struggling if I should include this feature in the slide I am developing.

Basically it goes like this. This slide contains animation and since the animation is long, I put there a rewind feature (basically this button jumps to this slide again but since slide state for this slide is 'reset to initial state', this button works) and after the long animation, it goes to the next slide. When it is in the next slide, there is a button that goes to previous slide but I like that if it goes back to previous slide it only shows the previous slide in the end of its timeline instead of resetting the animation. How can I do that when you only have two states for the slide and it is either one or the other, 'reset to initial state' or 'resume saved state'?

I hope my explanation is clearer for you.

You cannot change the slide state it is set on publish, you would have to set it to resume saved state, with would break your rewind.

Bummer. I had to choose one or the other. I do hope there is another to do this. Cause it works in my previous elearning authoring tool and it is getting harder for me to justify buying the software (four features already I had to ask (training sponsor) them to remove just to accommodate storyline.

if it is state changes of objects you could track variables and change the tate based on the value of these variables at timeline start.

okay. so what you mean is i set a variable then based on that variable i can set a trigger to jump to a slide with a different slide state? or is it i can set a trigger that can jump on a slide on a certain timeline?
