Keep colour of selected item in menue while moving in a scene

Nov 16, 2015


I implement a scene in my storyline menue, which consists of different slides (actually it is a screen record). After selecting the scene-item in the menue the colour of this item is set. It gets the selected item colour, which I defined in the settings.

Is it possible to keep this colour in the menue as long as the user is learning with this scene? At the moment the menue item change the colour again to "not selected".

Thank you for your help!

Best regards

Hi Christie,

thank you for the reply! Attached I send the Story-file to you.

The problem: After selecting an menue item, the colour of this item is Grey. Starting a lesson, which consists of a few slides. When I continue in this lesson, the menue item loses the focus and the colour. It should be grey as long as I sty in the lesson.

Is this feasible?

Best regards

Hi, Wolff -- Thanks for providing your file and I will take a look as soon as possible and will be in touch with my findings. In the meantime, I wanted to ask if you are seeing the same behavior when you test your course in the intended environment.

Hi, Wolff -- Many thanks for your patience, and apologies for the delay in reply. If I am understanding your question correctly, it sounds like you want the menu item to be highlighted, which you have grey, as you move through the course. Seems like the problem may be that not all of your slides are visible in the menu, so that may be the disconnect. If you take the file and re-set from story in the menu option, it should work for you. I also wanted to note it is only going to stay grey for the one you're on (and it's not as if the 'scene' will stay grey since it is slide-based). Hope that helps!
