I am trying to custimise a sidecar in the new story maps. Is there a way to customize the dots located on the far side of the Narrative Panel? The dots act as a navigation method through the sidecar, letting the user know how far in the slides they are or jump to a specific slide. Ideally, I want to make it function similar to the  StoryMaps Classic Journal version, where there is a home icon, tooltips, next, and previous arrows. 

 

I have tried looking through sidecar tutorials but they only describe how to do things I already did to my sidecar (eg. add content, reorder slides).  However, I have seen this tutorial/blog post that uses a customized version of the sidecar navigation but does not mention how to achieve what they did. They made the three dots into a visual 'page number/total page number', (eg. 03/11).

Hi @ZakariMumuni - The "3/11" indicator automatically replaces the dots if there are more than 10 slides in the sidecar.

I don't think we'd add a "home" button, since in ArcGIS StoryMaps a sidecar is always part of a longer story with its own cover, but we do have an update to this experience coming in a few weeks that is somewhat reminiscent of the classic Journal navigation. Stay tuned!
