Remove title from the start screen

Jul 12, 2018

Is it possible to remove the title of the storyline project from the first screen - the one that is black with 'continue' and 'restart' buttons? Thanks.

Ah, now I've got it! You're seeing the course title on the mobile Start screen before the first slide of the course is displayed. Thanks for clarifying that!

That title will appear by default, and there isn't a way to remove it. If you'd like to share your feedback with us on that, you can submit a feature request here!

Alyssa, could you please reconfirm. Are you saying that no matter what publishing choices I make, my file name/title is going to be shown to the student before they begin a lesson? That this title is different from the title deselect in the player properties? Needless to say, having a file name presented to a student which will not make sense to them could cause confusion. This did not happen in SL1 or SL2. Thanks.

Hi Rory,

Yes, that title is expected to show up in the top of the player as a part of the mobile start screen. This didn't happen in Storyline 1 or 2, as there was a different setup for how we loaded HTML5 output on Mobile. With Storyline 3 and 360 you'll now see it in the new responsive player. 

We'll keep you posted if this changes, but in the meantime it sounds like using the duplicate title would be the best method.

Thanks for clarifying, Rory.  Do you have video or audio on the first slide of your course?  You'll see the startup screen on a desktop display in that case as well.  We added this launch screen to help solve problems caused by recent autoplay issues with some browsers.

Thanks again for sharing your duplicate title method!
