Next & Back buttons appearing when they are not enabled

If anyone knew a way around this. I have a course with next/back removed from the interface and inside every slide. I have a Drag & Drop exercise with 'resume saved states' enabled. After I complete the exercise, I go to the next slide, return back to the drag & drop exercise with the saved state, and next/back buttons appear back on the interface. Is there a way around this?

Good Afternoon, Joseph.

When learners review a quiz, they'll see Articulate Storyline's built-in Prev and Next buttons in the lower right corner of the player—even if you've disabled them throughout your course. See this article for more information.

If you see disabled Prev and Next buttons in the player before reviewing the quiz, can you please send us a copy of your .story project file for a closer look? Thanks!

Is this still the way it works? I also want the Prev/Next buttons disabled, because I have custom navigation buttons for the course and using interactions as practice questions not a quiz. When the Prev/Next buttons appear it is awkward (now have two sets of buttons--Prev/Next and Back/Next) but also confusing, because the Prev button doesn't always go to the previous slide in the list, it goes to the last slide the learner was on.

Hi Dean!

When learners review a quiz (or revisit question slides they've already submitted), they'll see Articulate Storyline's built-in Prev and Next buttons in the lower right corner of the player—even if you've disabled them throughout your course. These navigation buttons are necessary for learners to review quiz slides.

If you'd like to have an option to disable the Prev and Next buttons during quiz review so you can use your own custom navigation buttons, please let us know

Yes thanks, I saw that post after I submitted my reply. Especially because "Prev" doesn't always go to the previous slide in the list (which is really odd to me), it is an awkward experience for the learner. I'm not using the interaction as a "quiz", just a practice question, so I want the ability to review each question. I don't really get why the player nav buttons have to be a requirement for review. Seems like you should be able to enable/disable them for review as well.
