Storyline 1 - "Jump to previous slide" is adding the default previous and next buttons to that slide.

My issue is in the title.

Now this is an issue I have never come across before. When I have my slides set to "automatically decide" when revisited, and the prev/next buttons turned off, they are suddenly appearing when I jump back to that slide.

My work around is to set every slide to "reset to initial state@, but obviously that isn't ideal.

Any thoughts?

Hello Gary!

  Here's the logic behind "automatically decide" option. If the slide contains just simple objects and/or audio but no interactivity, Storyline resets the slide to the beginning of the slide’s timeline each time users view the slide.  However, if the slide contains any interactive elements, such as buttons or any other object that includes a visited or selected state, Storyline resumes at the slide’s current state if users view the slide more than once.

Do you have a trigger set up to show the prev/next button at a certain point in the slide?

Hi Ashley,

Sorry for the late reply to this conversation, why does it work this way? It seems entirely counter-productive, especially when you're using your own prev/next buttons and have turned off the default Storyline buttons.

Having moved across to Storyline 2, I'm getting the same "functionality". Is this not something that was fixed for version 2?

Hi Gary,

Just to clarify, even though you've added your own navigation buttons, on the quiz questions next/prev buttons aren't included the first time through by default as the user has the "submit" button. As it's currently designed, Storyline doesn't "know" that you have your own navigation buttons so includes next/prev buttons on a revisit/review so that the user isn't stuck in terms of navigating.
