In Storyline 3, the term "player" refers to the interface around the perimeter of your slides. It can have navigation buttons, a seekbar, a clickable menu, slide notes, a glossary, supplemental resources, and more.
On laptop and desktop computers, you’ll see the full, standard player. On tablets and smartphones, you’ll see the all-new responsive player that adapts to the screen size and orientation of the learner’s mobile device.
You can customize the player features, colors, fonts, and text labels. You can even go chromeless with an invisible player if you plan to use your own custom navigation buttons. And the same player settings affect both the standard and responsive players, so you only have to make your customizations once. (The responsive player doesn’t support color and font properties. See this interactive demo for details.)
Here are a few examples of how different player configurations can change the appearance of a course.
To access the player settings, go to the Home tab on the Storyline ribbon and click Player.
