Stop auto play of slide's contents

Dec 22, 2014


When i open recording in preview mode, cursor is moving itself in every slide of recording, means every slide is working as video not as a slide. Slide should be like a snap shot.

Recording was created in "step-by-step" & try mode options is "always".

Please help me to stop this video of slide.

Hi Leslie,

Thanks for your reply.

I am creating recording in "step-by-step try mode" & not in "step-by-step view mode", if by mistake i had selected view mode while saving recording, then how can i save it in "step-by-step try mode", so that the cursor which is moving itself in preview mode will stop.

Purpose of saving recordings in "step-by-step try mode" is, so that user can do the same steps within the slide to do the practise before working on practical system.

So, please suggest, how to save the same recording in "step-by-step try mode" which were wrongly saved in "step-by-step view mode", instead of rerecording them again in "step-by-step try mode"

i has approx. 50 recording having this issue.

Hi Prafful,

Once you've inserted a screen recording into your .story file, you'll be able to access it from the small drop down carrot on the "Record screen" button. You can choose to insert any screen recording in your project, and insert it again in which ever mode you choose - if you had made any changes to the individual slides, those will not be saved or transferred when you reinsert the screen recording. 

There is additional information here on the tutorials of how to work with screen recordings in Storyline that I would suggest reviewing.
