Hi Reena,

Thanks! I saw you pop into a few other discussions sharing the published output as well. I'd love if you could share the steps you went through and a copy of your .story file (the file prior to publish) for folks who are looking to replicate your work.

Thanks for contributing to the community!

Hello.

I've been trying to find a way to remove the volume controls from a module after it's been exported (without needing access to the source file). I've found the easiest way to do this for both the HTML and HTML5 exports, and mentioned them below (as this topic didn't help me fully):

HTML/Flash export

Open frame.xml, do a lookup/replace for the following (it's listed 8 times):

<control name="volume" enabled="true" />

Replace with

<control name="volume" enabled="false" />

HTML5

Open story_html5.html, and around line 55 remove the following code:

<div id="control-volume" class="controlbar-button compact"><a class="icon volume half"></a></div>

Hope it helps someone else in the future.

Ok, This volume button request just came up for me today with our client. However, I cannot ask them to edit their project code. (they only want to use built-in features).

I've seen this request come up over several years so I'll ask a dumb question - Why isn't the Volume button one of the items you can simply "Check" on or off in the Player setup?

Can you get the programming team to add that feature Ashley?

Hello Bob,

The setting you're describing does already exist. 

Under the Player settings, there is a 'volume' tick box (next to seekbar/logo etc).

My workaround above was for removing the volume control after it was exported and without access to the original source file.

Bob O'Donnell

Sorry, guess I should have been clearer. The setting DOES NOT exist for the Player features settings "Custom for the selected slides", which was the topic of the discussion. "Remove Sound Icon/Volume Control from any slide"

The "Player" setting is completely different than the individual "Slide Properties" settings. See attached for reference. There should be a check box on that dialog box to turn the Volume slider "OFF" for individual slides. All the other main player options are there to turn on and off, why not the Volume control?

Its baffling why it was never programmed. That's the option that should be turned in as Feature Request - Volume checkbox on the Slide Properties panel under Player features. I guess I'll write one up today.

To answer your question Ashley, as noted in my pervious comment I cannot ask my client to edit any published code. We're teaching them to use Storyline but everything they do needs to be an option inside of the Storyline interface. No custom work outside the program.

Hi Crystal,

I have the same feature request as Bob O'Donnell.

Ashley, Feature request turned in!

Feature Request Number: 01328777"

This morning I also submitted a feature request for this.

I'd love to know that status of this request.  Having this feature would save me, Bob and many others time from having to create audio buttons for each slide.

Please let us know.

Thanks,
Martin
