Hello Chris,

Unfortunately this cannot be changed.

What you can do is add a new starting slide to your project that has a play button, and make that slide set to "advance by user" in the properties. You would then add a trigger to the play button to "jump to" the next slide.

Let us know if you need anything further!

Please add the ability to turn off AutoPlay. 

This is an issue,as above, when there are several storyline files on a page.  I have created a gateway screen as suggested. I have also set a trigger that pausees the timeline upon start, but this has not solved the issue. 

Please Note:  That in IE when using iFrame to embed the storyline files, the pages automatically jump or scroll straight to the place where the video is instead of staying at the top of the page.

This does not happen in Chrome.

From my users: "On pages that have the Storyline videos, on my PC but not on my Mac, when loading the pages, the pages automatically jump or scroll straight to the place where the video is instead of staying at the top of the page.

See http://www.correspondence.txstate.edu/ and http://www.correspondence.txstate.edu/students/course-offerings/eng1320.html , for example.

I read a little about this & read something about needing to put in some Java to force the page to load / scroll to the top when the page first loads in the viewer’s browser. Java is beyond me, but can you please investigate & correct this issue? We really want every page to load at the top, since that is how the pages are designed."

Use the Trigger Wizard to make a trigger for the embedded video. 

Action: Pause media

Media: [Insert Video Name Here]

When: State

On: All of

Make sure [Insert Video Name] is checked on the list.

Modifier: "Is:"

Modifier: "Normal"

Click OK to complete the trigger. 

At this point, users will have to click the video to get it to play -- and then click it again to pause. And if that makes you happy, great! Or you can get really nifty with your modifications...

You could create a HOTSPOT over your video so that it can't be clicked on. 

Then create a play/pause toggle button, scale it to the correct size, and place it below the video or on the side of the video. https://articulate.com/support/article/how-to-create-a-play-pause-toggle-button

(I wouldn't try to put the play/pause button directly on top of the video. Wonky things will happen.)
