Jumping slides

I'm publishing my first course in Storyline (so this may be a bit of a dumb question), and my slides are moving on their own.  I have a Player trigger on every slide that states: "Jump to Next Slide when user clicks the next button", but some of them are still jumping ahead without me clicking next.  What gives?  What am I missing? 

The only thing I can think of (and this might not at all be related) is that in my timeline almost all my objects are set to "Show until End" instead of "Show Always".  Does that have any affect on my slide transitions or am I barking up the wrong tree?

Check for additional slide triggers that may be advancing the slide "When timeline ends" or other triggers attached to objects on the slide.

The timeline of individual objects won't affect on their own.  Your issue could be the result of a trigger in combination with the timeline.  Without a trigger, I don't believe the slide can advance on it's own.

Found the problem, thanks!  It was in Slide Properties, I guess on some slides the Automatic transition was the default instead of User, which I guess trumps whatever slide player triggers you have set up.  I completely forgot to look there...Storyline is great, but you have to remember so many little details!

Hi Brooke,

Congrats on your first course

By any chance have you checked the slide properties? Click the gear icon on the bottom right of the screen and check the "Slide advances" drop-down. If it says automatically, change it to By user.

You can do this for all the slides if you change to Story view, Control+click on all your slides to select them all, and then change the slide properties on the
