Looking thru forum, please forgive me if I missed it. But am wondering how to allow the student use the “left arrow” on their keyboard to go to the previous screen, and the “right arrow” to go forward?
Many thanks –

This is an old post but the question came up recently with another customer. You should be able to add actions at the title level that on keystroke (for left or right arrow) will do the navigation. See the attached image.
You may need to do some conditions to handle special cases, or disinherit the actions on pages where they do not make sense.

I actually have navigation shortcuts and buttons in my training but when I ran it using Google Chrome, I was not able to see my Next button at all; however, the right arrow that I assigned to go next was working fine. Is there anything with my Google Chrome?January 22, 2019 at 4:45 pm #415941
Hi, Therese. You’d have to give more information for anyone to be very helpful. What version of Lectora? What publishing target? (AICC? SCORM?) How did you create the Next button?
You’re also technically in the wrong area (Tips and Tricks). Questions and Answers might be more suitable (and get you more answers).
If you can upload the course, it makes debugging enormously easier.January 23, 2019 at 7:49 am #415955
Thank you Carl,
Apologies for my posting in the wrong area, but I wasn’t able to find the Questions and Answers. I’d appreciate much if you send me the link and I’ll save it to my Desktop. Thank you in advance.
As for my Next button issue, I just moved my training to Lectora 18.0. However, I tested the .html generated by 17 and had the same issue: the Next button doesn’t appear when using Google Chrome. The Next button is actually an arrow image that I used in Image Button to create the button. There are also assigned shortcuts to Next/Previous buttons: OnRightArrowGotoNextPage and OnLeftArrowGotoPreviousPage.
I publish my training for SCORM, but usually test the button using the index.html file. It works fine with Edge and IE but not in Chrome. I’m also using the Accessibility feature if that helps.
I’m not sure if my workplace rules would allow me to upload the file but I’ll appreciate any helping tip.
Thank you again and apologies for the wrong posting location,January 24, 2019 at 1:52 pm #416094
The Q&A forum oddly has the URL https://community.trivantis.com/forums/forum/lectora-2/general-lectora-discussion/
The actual arrow image doesn’t appear in the published version? And other images on the slide do appear? Does it appear if you preview in the browser by pressing F9 and select Chrome? What format is the image in? One random thing I’d try is converting the image to another format (for instance, from JPG to PNG) and seeing it that works.January 24, 2019 at 2:07 pm #416103
Thank you Carl. I actually move this conversation to the Q&A as per your advice and got some feedback. I’m trying to resolve some issues between our server and Lectora and as soon as those are sorted out, I’ll put a blank title with the navigation keys that are malfunctioning with Chrome. And yes, I can see the keys in the Preview mode and when published through other browsers. I’ll try your suggestion to change the image’s format and test it.
Many thanks again,
