Hello David,

Here is some information on the resuming options in the slide properties:

  • Automatically decide:  This is the default choice, and it means Storyline will decide automatically whether to resume or reset the slide when users view the slide again later.  Here's the logic:  If the slide contains just simple objects and/or audio but no interactivity, Storyline resets the slide to the beginning of the slide’s timeline each time users view the slide.  However, if the slide contains any interactive elements, such as buttons or any other object that includes a visited or selected state, Storyline resumes at the slide’s current state if users view the slide more than once.
  • Resume saved state:  Use this option if you always want the slide to remember the state it was in previously when users return to it.  In other words, this allows users to pick up where they left off if they leave the slide and come back to it.
  • Reset to initial state:  Use this option if you always want the slide to reset to itsinitial state when users return to it.  This means every time users view the slide, it will restart at the beginning of the slide’s timeline, and any interactive objects will return to their initial states.
