Thanks for your help

Hi Marjorie! The seekbar comes standard with the Replay button. There is not a way to remove it that I am aware of. I am not aware of any custom examples to share with you for this either, but perhaps some community members may have possible solutions.

If this is something that would be useful for you, you can submit that as a feature request.

By editing the frame.xml within your story_content folder you can control the appearance of the navigation bar elements. Search for control_layouts, edit one of the layouts that matches your slide configured options and change the enabled value of the seekbar, replay, pauseplay, etc..

This only works in the Flash based output and you'll need to make the change after each publish. Not ideal. But possible

Hi Man and welcome to Heroes! 

If you don't want to use the built in seekbar and the rewind button, there is a thread here where some other users have discussed a way to set this up. You may also want to look into removing the seekbar(and therefore the replay button) and either creating your own custom player using the Storyline SDK or custom buttons/progress bars to help your users navigate the course.

WOOHOO, Steve!

I just tested this using a SL2 story.  If you open the frame.xml within the story_content folder and do a search for <control name="replay" enabled="false" /> and replace all with <control name="replay" enabled="true" />, it actually updated the html version too.

I was also able to successfully zip the published output myself (with the modified frame.xml file) and upload it to the LMS. The course launched with no issues and had the replay button as expected.

So glad to be able to be able to do this now!

Well, to late to reply...

I found a solution for this replay functionality. If you are using a custom replay button, add a trigger to it to go some blank slide in your course. Then on the blank slide add trigger to "Jump to previous slide" on time line start. Since previous slide in storyline goes to the last visited page.
