Slider/Scrolling problems on Storyline timeline project

I have been working on this new eLearning idea here and there and it uses a unique way to slide on-screen content in Storyline. I am interested in what people think.

I am amazed how different the Storyline 2 and Storyline 360 slider thumbs work, btw. SL2 is much better. Here is a video showing the difference. Any thoughts?

Hi David,

Thanks for the video - that was really helpful for me to see what you were describing. The link you previously shared to the hosted course was that Storyline 2 or Storyline 3? I just wanted to check as I didn't see the jump there (I recorded a quick screencast of it). If that version was Storyline 3 - do you see the same jump when you're testing on the website vs. the content hosted locally on your desktop?

To get our team to dig into this further I'd love to have a copy of your Storyline course so that we can look at all your slide settings (I know you mentioned they were the same - but sometimes it's the littlest thing!). You can share it using the "Add attachment" button or if you need to send to me privately I can reach out with a direct upload link! Just let me know.

Hi Ashley,  David and I were (unkowinglinly) posting similar issues.  If you could look at this much simpler comparison, it should make even more sense to what is going on and be even easier to show the engineers:  https://community.articulate.com/discussions/articulate-storyline/sliders-in-sl3-and-360-jumping-and-not-sliding

Thanks Richard - and that is the piece that helped me understand, so I truly appreciate it. It looks like our team has an issue they're investigating that matches the description here - so I wanted to confirm a few pieces.

For the issue we have reported the behavior is different in Flash vs. HTML5 (the HTLM5 output in SL3/360 is the problematic one). Based on your links Richard I can't tell if you've published with HTML5 only or first and that's why it's occurring no matter where I test - so I wanted to check in with you on that part. 

I'll link these forum discussions to that open issue so that I can update you here once we've got additional info.

Hey everyone,

Good news! We fixed the issue you reported where the Flash version of a slider does not behave like the HTML5 version of a slider.

Install the latest Storyline 360 update to take advantage of all the recent features and fixes. Here's how.

If the problem happens again, please record a Peek 360 screencast for me, and I'll be happy to help!
