Seek bar and volume control NOT available in lightbox slide.

Aug 01, 2017


I'm using SL2. I recently noticed that the Seek bar and volume control are not visible, thus unavailable on a slide when the slide is viewed as a lightbox. Is this by design or am I doing something wrong.

Please see the example Storyline file attached.

Hi Teresa!

Tell me more about what you want the restart button to do. Do you want it to restart the lightbox slide from the beginning of the timeline? If so, there's a simple way to do that!

Add a button called "Restart" to the lightbox slide. Add a trigger to this button to jump to the current slide when the user clicks the button. 

Finally, change the revisiting setting of the lightbox slide to "Reset to initial state."

Give that a try, and let me know how it goes!

Hi Teresa.  It sounds like you're running into an HTML5 specific bug for Storyline 2 where the slide does not reset to the initial state.  Google Chrome disables Flash Player by default, so you the difference between IE and Chrome is likely the HTML5 output.

I'll add this discussion to our report.  Just to compare, this function does work in Storyline 360 and Storyline 3.
