UPDATE! As of October 2019, the Storyline 360 trigger wizard was updated to use the same intuitive language as the triggers panel so it’s consistent and understandable. For 360 users, “Assignment and Not Assignment” have been replaced with “Set and Toggle.” The language is different, but the steps listed below still work. Learn more about the new trigger workflow here, and then read on! Although not used as often, the “=NotAssignment” (also known as “toggle”) variable/trigger can be a great way to help you create engaging interactions for your learners!
Quite often in class, and in actual development, you’ve made something super awesome on the slide, and you need more of it. This could be buttons, shapes, markers, text boxes–you name it! And shortcuts are a great way to cut down development time. Make it once, make sure it works and looks the way you expect it to, then DUPLICATE it! One of our trainers even has the catch phrase, “Make it great, then duplicate!” During the training, we must copy and paste a thousand times! Okay, maybe that’s exaggerating
In a recent custom virtual training, a student asked for help in creating scenario-based courses in Storyline. When the scenario arrived to a point where the learner received a quiz question, they wanted the learner to not only be able to review content they had already seen, but to also highlight important information. The main consideration here was that they did not want the information highlighted on the original slide, only when being reviewed. While there are several ways one might accomplish this, one of the easiest ways is to
This question was sent to me just this month after a training session. Let me set it up for you… In our advanced class, we teach the students how to build a custom menu and control the navigation of that menu using True/False Variables (aka, Boolean–for the nerds out there). You can view a simplified version of the course here. You can also download that .story file at this link. What is happening in this example is the “visited” states of the buttons are designed to look like an “in
There’s one moment in particular that brings me extra delight as an instructor during our Storyline workshops. It’s that look of awe from participants when we draw attention to a trigger that works because of the sequential order of the triggers themselves. As you may know, triggers execute all of the action in our Storyline builds. Aside from a few timeline-based events, we see most of our slide actions listed in the Triggers Panel. However, the sequential order of triggers within the panel can also be significant. You may or
