Slides are auto-advancing in StoryLine 2 - no trigger to indicate auto-advance


I am currently writing an eLearning course in StoryLine 2, but the slides keep auto-advancing. I have removed the 'Jump to next slide when the timeline ends' trigger and used 'Jump to next slide when user clicks next button'.

The new trigger advising to jump to next slide upon clicking next button is the first in order of the triggers, therefote should be done in this order?

I have checked the auto play settings, and this is also set to 'by user' and not automatically.


Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am on a tight deadline for this! :)

Hi, Sammie - 

I see Wendy is helping you here, and she is correct: if you would like to upload your .story file for us to take a look at, all you need to do is use the "Add Attachment" button and navigate to your file on your machine from there. In addition, please see this information on Tips for Importing Microsoft PowerPoint and Articulate Presenter Content, as well as this tutorial, Importing Slides from Microsoft Powerpoint

I also wanted to add that in the interests of meeting your deadline, you are also welcome to work directly with our support staff by submitting a case using this link

Hi Laura

Hard to say without seeing your file? Have you checked

  • triggers - 'jump to next slide when timeline ends' 
  • master slides - (if you are using them) advance when timeline end triggers
  • layers - advance when timeline end triggers
  • slide properties 'advance automatically' is not selected.

Happy to take a look if you want to upload the file (or a few slides if it's happening to all)
