#FREEBIE: Minimalistic Storyline player menu and navigation controls

Hey everyone,

I’ve been playing around with a new menu with navigation controls.

Check out the YouTube video right here

The template contains

  • the menu plus nav controls on the left and right side of the screen
  • Dark and light grey versions for left hand section
  • Dark and light grey, blue, red, green and yellow versions for the right hand side

Everything is put on a Master slide so you can adapt anything you want right there. If you have any questions or comments drop me a line in the comments or contact me directly.

    Hi Jeff, thank you for sharing this cool menu, I’m trying to create mine for a revamped demo, may I ask you what’s the variable ShowMenu for? thanks

      Hi Celia, glad you like it. The variable is to keep the menu open if you go to the prev/next slide when you have it opened in the current slide.

        Ahhh, OK, I see it now, I didn’t think about that detail. Thanks Jeff for the tip

        Hi Jeff, thanks for sharing this great looking template. Sorry to ask you for more but can you explain how to alter the Show/Menu variable so that the menu appears in the toggle closed state? Thanks again.

    This is a great example Jeff. Thanks for sharing. I also like the variable to control the menu state.

    This looks great and I love the use of the Master slide. I tend to shy away from using the Master slide for some odd reason. This makes me want to use it more to simplify my work. Thanks!

    Hi Jeff,

    Thanks for sharing. Do you also have a power point version of this template?

      Hi Esther, unfortunately this kind of functionality only comes with Storyline and is not something you can do in Studio.

    Hi Jeff, thankyou, you are very generous sharing these excellent templates. I have been working with menu and can see you have included a toggle variable VarShowMenu. What I would like to do is have the menu automatically close when the user clicks on a menu item – rather than having to click on the menu icon. Howeever Im not quite sure how to achieve this. I did try the hide layer when the timeline starts..but that didnt seem to work. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. kind regards Kate

      Hi Kate, have you tried toggling the VarShowMenu to off before jumping to another scene? Simply apply two triggers, one to turn of the var, second to jump to slide/scene.
