SL2 Update 7 iPad playback

Sep 22, 2015

So using iPad Safari, I've seen a couple of minor problems:

1 - we have quiz questions throughout the course content.  If I complete a question and progress to the next content slide... then click the PREV button to return to the question... the question does not display PREV/NEXT controls in the skin.  It works just fine in Flash

2 - For unknown reasons, the order of the top tab items (resources, menu, exit) changes on some slides... really odd.  Repeatable, and it doesn't happen in Flash.

Hi Sam,

Was the issue with the quiz questions and the previous button not something you saw in Storyline 2 Update 6? If you have a sample course set up, we'd love to take a look at that and how it's behaving. 

As for the top tab order, that is something that our team is aware of, so I'll include this thread in the report filed with them so that we can keep you posted here.

Hi Ashley,

Well, whether it was in SL2 Ver 6 or not I don't know.  Either way, shouldn't the iPad should play back completed quiz questions with PREV/NEXT the way Flash does.

Without PREV/NEXT, the learner is stranded unless they figure out that the tab MENU can navigate away from the page. Surprising how many learner's won't get that.

Hi Sam,

I'd expect it to work the same regardless, I was just trying to narrow down if this was a new issue for Update 7 as you indicated in your post or whether it was connected to something earlier. I don't see any issues reported recently, 

Are you using the submit button on the player, what are you player slide properties? There are a few different factors or differences I'd like to take a look at and will look at creating my own file, but if you can share what you have set up that'll help save a few steps in case I miss something that you included. 

Also what iOS are you viewing the course on? 

Thanks in advance for any additional info you can provide.

Hi Sam,

I did a really quick sample with the basics of what you said - question slide and then a content slide. Upon using the "previous" button to go back to the question slide, it all worked normally and showed the prev/next buttons as expected on my iPad with iOS 9 and in the latest version of Chrome looking at the HTML5 output.
