oncklick jump to cue point in timeline

Mar 10, 2015

Hey all,

I want to create a button, that allows you to jump to a certain position on the timeline. With cue points or just the exact time like 3.5 sek. 

And i don't want to use layer for this.

Is there any possibility? Maybe work with JavaScript or something?

This is a serious deficiency. 'Feature request' just submitted.

It is really tedious to have to split content onto separate layers and then display each layer (using a trigger and a condition) when a 'Next' button is clicked. Building up a screen of bullet text/images, etc. is something even PowerPoint can do!

And it gets worse - if there is an audio on each of these layers, when I click 'Next' to display another layer, the currently playing audio continues together with the new layer's audio. And no, I don't want to have to play/pause named audio files with a trigger. When you display a new layer, an audio that is playing on the layer you are leaving should stop

A lot of people have been asking for this 'jump to a cue point' for many months. Where is it?

Hi everybody,

Totally agree and I will also enter a Feature Request.

In the meantime I use a pretty good workaround since a couple of months. You can have a look at a short sample here http://bit.ly/1hfLlOc .

I have two variant to this trick one with Cue Points and one without.

First I place the different objects in a sequence in the timeline at consecutive second boundaries. After that I add a Pause Timeline trigger a bit before every second boundary like stop at .95 , 1.95 etc. Finally I have a resume Timeline Trigger Onclick. 

As you will see I also sometimes use a secondary layer in order to avoid cluttering the base layer. In this case do not forget to select "Prevent the user from clicking on base layer" in the secondary layer options.

Hi Everyone,

Happy to share the good news! 

We just released the newest version of Storyline 360 (Build 3.38.21779.0) this morning, which brings the Jump to Time Trigger! This feature allows you to create unique interactions by using triggers that jump to different times or cue points on the timeline. For more details on this, please check out this knowledge base article

The next step is to update Storyline 360 by heading to your Articulate 360 desktop app and clicking "Update" next to Storyline 360.
