Tabbing to a button with disabled state activates the button

Sep 14, 2020

I'm using the modern player...

I have a main menu slide that requires the learner to take 5 lessons in order. Buttons are in the "disabled"state until the lesson before it is completed. When lesson 1 is completed, Lesson 2 changes to "normal", and so on. However, if you tab to lesson 2, 3, 4 or 5 while they are still disabled, the button is activated, and you jump to the locked lesson. 

I recall this was also an issue with the classic player at some point that was eventually fixed?

Anyway, I think I can come up with a workaround, but i'm curious if this a bug or a feature?

If it's a bug, can you put in a ticket/request to fix it?

Hi Leah,
Great news! We just released another update for Storyline 360 and included a few important fixes and new features that you'll see in the release notes here 
The item you'll be interested in is where disabled buttons and shapes can be accessed by keyboard navigation if one or more of the states contained more than one object.
Just launch the Articulate 360 desktop app on your computer and click the Update button for each application. Details here.
Please let us know if you have any questions, either here or by reaching out to our Support Engineers directly.
