Move the end of timeline

Jul 29, 2014


I am wondering if this is possible. I have a slide with 1000+ seconds length on the timeline. The slide is now only 10 seconds length. Is there a shortcut to move the end of the timeline from 1000+ seconds to 10 seconds without dragging the end of timeline?

Thanks in advance.

Hi MM04!

It sounds like you're referring to the player seekbar, is that right? 

The seekbar has two settings: 

  • Allow user to drag seekbar: learners can use the seekbar to scrub back and forth along the timeline
  • Seekbar is read only: learners cannot skip ahead, since the seekbar is locked.

Try switching the seekbar setting, and let me know if that helps!

Thanks for your advice.. but maybe I dont know how to explain :) I ment that the seekbar should be read only first time when student views the content... and then changes to allow user to drag bar... cause theres no point to force the student to watch it 2 times.. rather give possibility to browse through the parts he wants to check again.

Ah, thanks for popping back in to clarify.

A conditional seekbar that is draggable upon revisit is a feature request that our team is tracking.

I wanted to share some information about how we manage these feature requests as that may be helpful. 

I'm adding this conversation to the report so that we can pop in and update you when we can.

Hey, folks. I'm excited to let you know that update 21 for Storyline 360 is here! What's inside? 🎁

Please welcome the Conditional Seekbar in the Modern Player! You can use this new feature to prevent learners from skipping ahead until they've completed a slide. The seekbar is locked the first time learners view the slide. After that, they can drag the seekbar back and forth.

Plus many more goodies; check out all the new features and fixes here! Here's how you can update Storyline 360 to see everything the latest release has to offer.

Be sure to let us know what you think!

Hi B!

In short, the solution shared via YouTube video is to:

Start dragging and then press the left back arrow on your keyboard. This will jump you to the beginning of the timeline. This prevents you to having to drag back through the completely long timeline :)

You have just changed my life Leslie!! Thanks so much!!! 👍👍👍👍👍
