Timeline should show as you preview slides

As I go through my review of a course I am building, I just thought of a great feature that could be added to Storyline 2. When you are in the preview screen, it would be awesome if, as the progress bar is moving along, it displayed the time as well. That way, I could just jot down the time that I would like to move something to. The course I am currently building has some slides with alot of audio, and I think adding this feature would greatly reduce development time. I apologize in advance if this has already been suggested. Thanks!

Hi Kristin!

No apologies necessary! We always love to hear ways we can look at improving Storyline, so thanks for sharing your idea! Aside from sharing ideas here in the ELH forums, you can also send them along to our Product team in the form of a feature request. I've seen this question come up a few times in the forum, and another community member suggested a Javascript solution in this thread. 

You also have the option to preview your slide using the timeline. I personally like this method because you can add cue points as the slide plays to mark a specific place on the timeline, and later you can align objects to the cue points.
