Inserting the same engage interaction in multiple places

Sep 20, 2011

I created a timeline in engage but it takes me a few slides to explain each event. What I'd like to do is show the entire timeline and then enter in a few slides then repeat the same timeline slide again. I tried to insert it again but engage is asking me to update the slide. There does need to be different narration on each of the slides but when I prevew them to make sure the insert worked, nothing shows up where that slide should be and it won't let me advance to the next slide without viewing all the content on the screen (but there isn't any content. it's just a blank slide.) Is it possible to repeat the same engage interation multiple places in the presentation? If so, how?

Hi Stephanie and Brian,

I am having a similar issue.  I am trying to get a head start on creating my presentation and do not have the final set of files.  I would like to create the engage interactions ahed of time, and need to be able to add them to another ppt file.  When I select Add Exisiting, I am brought to a file structure where I keep clicking on a folder until there is nothing left and I am unable to select anything.

Is it possible to do this, to create slides and then copy them into another presentation while maintaining the voice recording, annotations, quizes, and engage interactions?

Welcome to Heroes, Laura!

It sounds like you want to insert one presentation into another - is that right? 

The suggested method for merging two or more Articulate presentations into one is the following: 

1) Open both PowerPoint files, and decide which file is the master. 
2) In the secondary presentation(s), click in the slide view area, and press CTRL+C to copy all slides. 
3) Switch to the master file, click in the slide view area, and press CTRL+V to paste the copied slides. 
4) If you have recorded narration in the secondary presentation(s), export the audio from each secondary presentation using the steps in this article: 

5) Then import the audio files into the master presentation:
Let me know if that is in fact what you're hoping to do. Great to have you here! Good luck!
