So, my request...a way to apply settings like the Automatic/Manual advance to a) all slides and b) selected slides. (Or is that here, an I am missing how to do it?)

I expect I would want to have Manual advance in most cases, and having to change for each & every slide...that's a lot of repetitive work.



I would also like to see the control bar animation removed, when "Manual" is selected. I don't want to hide the other controls - just don't want the illusion of things moving, when they are not.

We are working on that. The ability will be added to select multiple slides, and then whatever change you make to an individual slide will be set on all selected slides.


I am looking to replace my use of Articulate with Snap, but these two things listed above really become a deal breaker for me. I am patient though, so plese keep improving the product.



At the very least, I want to customize a player skin with a menu (with equivalent functionality to Articulate) without having to go into Lectora. Why? I want to enable my faculty members to start making these courses themselves, from PPT files. If you want a recommendation as a first step in the right direction for your development efforts, please offer a Player Style with No Controls but WITH the table of contents panel on the left. This would be simple and effective for many use cases!



Also, I agree with Linda that the labor intensive switching of each slide in Slide Explorer from Automatic 5 seconds to Manual is less than ideal (and not very rapid in a rapid elearning tool!!).



Will update with comments as I explore more of the tool - great option as a tool though - you will steal market share if you improve a few of these major things! You may also consider doing a monthly subscription for $10 and really knocking Articulate out of the market.....With Adobe now offering monthly subscriptions, albeit for a different class of products, it is clear that monthly rental software as a service is the new wave (in fact, it is well over due in the desktop authoring sphere).
