Refresh/reload button

Nov 21, 2013

Can I replay a timeline from the beginning with a custom refresh button? How would I go about doing that?

There is a way to do that globally.

I attached the demo file here.

Basically, the method is create a button in master slide that changes a number variable by adding 1 to it every time you click the button. 

And on each slide, you just need to create a slide trigger that jumps to current slides when the variable changes.

Hi Leslie, I DID reset to initial state, and it would start from the beginning, however the audio would NOT. So I had to add a trigger to my refresh on each slide, that says play audio when timeline starts - if there is another way to fix this - that would be great because now IT is causing another issue. If a user has PAUSED the timeline and then clicks on the menu or resources button on one of the pages, and then closes it, the audio will resume again - even though it was last on a pause state. I'm afraid I'm digging myself into a huge variable mess.

Hello Marcio - If you wish for the slide to replay as this thread discusses, you would want to change the slide re-visit properties to 'Reset to Initial State'. If I have misunderstood or you can share a bit more details, I'm sure that would be helpful. This thread is a bit dated. If you need us to take a look at the .story file, feel free to share.
