SL360 issue with Light box

Nov 11, 2016


With SL2 I was able to use a lightbox slide and add trigger to close the lightbox and jump to another slide (non-lightbox). SL360 won't do that. Is this a bug? or a feature?

Hi Benny,

Thanks for reaching out here - I saw the same behavior in a brand new file I created in Storyline 360 and so I confirmed with my team that this is a known bug right now. It seems to occur on upgraded and and projects so I'll include this forum discussion as a part of the report filed so that I can update you here once there is any additional information to share.

Hi Becky!

You can now close a lightbox and jump to the next slide simultaneously. Here's how!

  • Insert a button on the lightbox slide called "Close"
  • Add two triggers to the button in this order:
    1. Close lightbox when the user clicks the button
    2. Jump to slide [next slide] when the user clicks the button
  • Preview the entire project

There you have it! Let me know if that's what you had in mind.

Hi Lerissa,

You can customize your menu to hide those lightbox slides if you'd like.

Check out our documentation here.

  1. Select the scene or slide title.
  2. Click the Delete heading button below the menu.

Scenes and slides you remove from the menu will still be part of your published course; they just won’t show in the menu.
