Next button won't work until timeline ends

Jul 22, 2015


I have a serious problem with a Storyline 2 project. I'm using the default player. On every screen, the "Next" button won't work until the timeline for the slide completes. 

Myself nor anyone on my team can figure out what's causing it. We don't have any triggers setup to do this. 

Can someone please help?

Hi Lars!

In Articulate Storyline 1, restricted and locked navigation settings only affected the menu. In contrast, the navigation settings in Articulate Storyline 2 affect both the menu and the player buttons, making it much easier to control the overall navigation for your course. To learn how to restrict or lock navigation in Storyline 2, see this article.

I can understand why, if menu navigation is restricted, that the next button would not work on a slide until the slide has been completed. But upon completion of the slide, the next button should work, especially when revisiting that slide. Currently, if the completed slide is revisited, the next button still doesn't work. Also, if the next button isn't going to work on a slide by default in a menu-restricted course, the next button should at least appear disabled. Otherwise, it just appears to the learner that the next button is broken. (I'm aware I can disable the next button, but that doesn't really solve the problem.)
