Slide counter for non-linear navigation
Sep 03, 2013
I'm currently building some courses with Storyline (first time using Articulate for about 5 years). I've been instructed that the look/feel of these courses much match previously produced modules, including a slide counter. This design will involve navigation buttons & a menu inside the content of the module, not using the articulate player.
I've created a variable & triggers that work fine to count up/down as the user moves forwards/backwards, however, using the menu for non-linear navigation will obviously not work. Having read a previous post about using slides remaining for non-linear navigation, I've thought about this alot, but cannot seem to come up with a solution which doesn't include a different trigger on almost every slide. In that case, I may as well manually number the slides.
I also hit a problem using a trigger to visit previous slide, as if you navigated using the menu from slide 2 to slide 10, using the previous slide trigger takes you back to 2. I have worked around this by changing the trigger to go back to a specific slide when the back navigation button is pressed. Is there a better way of setting that up?
