Previewing slides from a certain point on

Jul 28, 2012

Within a scene, is there a way to preview a story from a specific point onward?  I don't want to take the time to keep re-visiting the front end of a course every time I want to preview the things at the end.  I know that you can preview a slide, a scene, the project or a question bank, but I'd like something a bit in between.

Karen, I would love to see this feature too.  Here's a link if you want to submit a feature request:

You could always set up a new scene in Story View (name it "Preview" then delete it at the end) and select/drag the slides to that scene to preview them, then drag them back to their proper place.  Not elegant - but it would be quick.  I'm sure this won't work in many situations where there is a lot of interactivity, but if it's pretty straightforward, this might help.

Yes, please. It would be great if this was an option. To be able to preview from, let's say, slide 30 and go to the end, rather than start from the beginning every time would be wonderful! (Hate to say it, but the competitor has this option.) It would be such a time saver. Any chance of adding it to the road map? Thanks much!

I tried Alyssa's method, and it works perfectly. (i.e. the ability to preview from a particular slide onwards already exists in Storyline).  

It would still be helpful to have a "Preview from Slide" button (similar to what iSpring has) to save the first-world hassle/extra clicks of going to "Select" (so I do support the feature request), but Alyssa's solution works perfectly in the interim.
