Working with the new Slide Number variables

Jul 02, 2021

Hello all, 

I am building a new course and would like to include a simple way for the user to know how much of the course is left. I have added the new slide number triggers to my master slide so it shows on all slides. However, my issue comes when I preview the course. The numbers work great as long as they progress forward, if the user clicks the back button the number doesn't move backward.

How do I get this to happen? Am I missing something?

Thanks for the help in advance. 

Oh, I should also note I created the navigation myself, I am not using the building storyline navigation and next/back buttons. 

Thank you much!

Hi Melissa!

Are you adding to the slide number when moving onto the next slide? If so, you could choose to subtract from the variable when the learner presses the previous button.
