Replay Button on the Seekbar
Feb 19, 2015
I brought this up a while back and even made an enhancement request for it because the functionality for the replay button seems broken to me when you have a slide and/or its layers set to Resume Saved State. If you click the button nothing happens. If you put yourself in a learner's shoes, this button is broken because clicking it does nothing. You cannot have a visible feature where it only works in certain cases. To me, this seems like an easy fix that should have happened already.
Either the replay button needs to become hidden when a slide is set to Resume Saved State (which I see being difficult because this needs to take into account for each layer, as well) or the other option would be to have the replay button be INDEPENDENT of the slide setting (which is how I would think you would set this up). The replay button should simply replay the current slide. The Resume Saved State should do what it does now. With this being said, if I have a slide set to this, when I come back to this slide I should pick up where I left off and still be able to click the replay button rather than it being broken, as it is now. I think this is pretty straightforward but if I haven't explained my thoughts clearly enough, please let me know.
I have no problem with limitations or certain workarounds. If someone from Articulate can explain to me why the functionality is the way it is without sending me to your documentation I would appreciate it. I am just looking for an answer that explains why it is okay to have a broken button on the screen, that's all. I was really hoping this would be fixed with Articulate 2. If you have no plans on changing this functionality then just me and I will drop it. I really enjoy your product and use it to its full potential all of the time. I guess that's why I am frustrated that something so simple has been overlooked for so long.
