Variable not working with seamless play enabled

Hi all

I'm using Lectora Inspire v17.0.5

I've just had to re-publish some projects that I haven't touched for a while, and in doing so I noticed that one of my variables was broken. In the end, I disabled the Seamless Play option on publish, and this fixed the problem for now, but I'm not sure if that is the best solution.

The variable is just a counter that I use to track progress through to our training portal (we're not using an LMS), so I have the following action at the title level:

Trigger: on show

Action: modify variable

Target: add to variable

Condition: if this page is not completed

I have this value showing in a text box in a tiny font, so that I can be sure the tracking is working. This variable is reported to our training portal, and shows the progress of completion on a little progress bar.

OK, so there's bound to be a better way to do this, using all the Lectora progress tracking etc, but this works for me, for now. Well, it did, until today....

When I published with seamless play enabled, the counter just did not work, and I thought I'd broken something. When I published with seamless play turned off, the counter works again, but I'm not sure if there is something else I should be doing, so that seamless play works.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Regards

Amanda

    See in Wendy's response the part about "seamless play". That might help.

    If not, post a sample for us to look at.

    Thanks Darrel. I guess what it means is that if you want to enable seamless play, you cannot have an action at the title level that refers to 'this page'.

    I've now also discovered that the fullscreen icon on my Vimeo videos doesn't work when I de-select Seamless Play.

    So, any action that refers to "this page" at the title level will not work if seamless play is turned on, and the Vimeo fullscreen icon doesn't work if seamless play is turned off.

    I'll have to find a different way to keep track of progress through the project instead of using each page visited.
