Slide won't automatically advance

Mar 30, 2020

Hi, I have my slides set to automatically advance and some won't and it won't give me the option. It's stuck on "by user". The drop-down won't even happen upon clicking it. I've run into this before and I can't remember the fix?

I've deleted the triggers, unchecked and rechecked boxes and have the menu set to free navigation. 

Can anyone remind me what's going on here and how to fix it?

Hi Kathleen,

Thanks for contacting us to describe what you're experiencing with your project.

I'm not sure that I've seen that behavior before, but I'd be happy to take a look.

With your permission, I'd like to take a look at your project file to investigate what's happening. You can share it publicly here, or send it to me privately by uploading it here. I'll delete it when I'm done troubleshooting.

Hi Ricky,

Thank you for reaching out! 

May I ask what the slide properties are for your course? You can adjust how slides advance by: 

  • Clicking on the ⚙️icon on the bottom right underneath Slide Layers.

  • When the slide properties prompt appears, click on the Slide Advances category to change how the slide advances.

Please let us know if you have any questions! We are happy to help!
