Automagicly Collapse Articulate Menus
In comments Rob pointed out to me that the icon didn't change back and that it didn't work very well if you had 3 levels. These issues should be fixed now.
It's great to get feedback from the community like this! Keep it coming!
Recently a friend asked if I could solve this long standing problem posted in the Articulate Forums by "doofdaddy": (wow what a silly name... bet he won't go far with Articulate... wait that's who? oh.. never mind, I stand corrected)
"I have a presentation with about 100 slides. I broke them into ten sections (level 1) of ten slides each. All of the slides that are not section headings are level 2.
The menu shows ten slides. When I get to the appropriate section, the section expands and reveals the level 2 slides.
Is there a way to make those slides collapse after I leave the section?"
Turns out there is...
The trickiest part to using this file is that it needs to be available to the player early in the cycle and from any point. To accomplish this I am hijacking an Articulate file named 'null.swf'. This is a great place to inject code into Articulate... the downside is that you will need to manually copy the file into the correct place after you publish your course (each time you publish).
So... play with it here.
