Hi, thank you for responding.  My company has Studio 9 licenses and we are considering augmenting with stand-alone software to do much of what will be available with Studio 13 release.  So narrowing down the timeframe in 2013 to Q1 or Q2 would be very helpful to our decision-making now.  Also, knowing whether there will be a cost associated with the upgrade will help with budgeting.

We can take this discussion off-line if there is a contact I can talk with - thank you!

Hello!

Can I make a cheeky request - if it's cheeky at all!?

When Studio '13 is released please can it retain the 'toggle view' button that allows a user to switch between standard, no slidebar and slide only view? Having slide only or no sidebar is great for presenting certain material like video etc. as it can create a more focussed environment.

From the pictures I've seen in your promo it looks like it's going to have Storyline skin functionality without this feature :-(

Many thanks,

Bill

Hello We here at Air Canada are also awaiting Studio '12...'13.

We have purchased Storyline as we have a dire need to develop for iPad. However we do not want to republish all our content in storyline, as once in storyline we cannot bring it back to Presenter/ PPT.

I am currently working on Objectives for 2013 and a date would be most beneficial, as we are trying not too, but may be forced due to time constraints to move to a Captivate Product which is currently readily available.

Any information would be greatly appreciate.

Any updates?

When your promo says video for HTML5 does that include MP4?

Hey Matt!

We’re working diligently to get the Studio '13 products ready for beta testing in early 2013 —and are now actively recruiting beta testers. If you’d like to be considered for the beta program, please send me a PM for more information. Thanks!

Gail,

My opinion - for sure there will be a cost for upgrading.

This not a softwer as service, that you get the upgrade built-in.

When buying a software once in a few years - you will always pay.

And my guess the payment will be considerable amount of the full price, if an upgrade will be avilable at all.

I purchased several licenses for Studio9 in early 2012 as part of a federal grant.  I managed to squeeze the cost of the Platinum membership out of the grant so the "Studio12 upgrade" would be covered...after all it was already 2012 so I was being a good steward of grant funds.  Now it looks like release of the newly renamed "Studeo13" will probably not be released by April 16...the day the Platinum membership expires.

We'll be stuck because the grant cannot cover another Platinum upgrade.  To say the least...I feel like we've been hoodwinked by Articulate.  I realize that software development has its unknowns, but really Articulate, this is a bit of a marketing morass on your part.

Hi Paula, welcome!

I want to assure you that your PMP will not expire until Studio '13 releases and you've had a chance to redeem your upgrade for Studio '13 - regardless of when we release it. Please feel welcome to contact an Articulate representative to learn more about your PMP benefits. 

Welcome again to the community

I'm trying to decide which software to purchase.  I've been holding out for Studio 13 and considering Storyline, but the no release date on 13 and 12 never getting released are making me question if we should just change to another product.  We have needs to get our courses into html5 and multiple platform compatible. What is the right decision to make?

Lisa Ferris

I agree with Blaine who posted last week.  We need a release date and price as we have been waiting for AS 13 for ages and we have to budget and make decisions!  AS '13 is a much better fit for us than Storyline.  This is holding up our course development big time.  Articulate guys, please tell us something besides "it will be ready when it's ready."  That's not a good business approach for keeping loyal customers.  Tom K still rocks though.

Hi Lisa, welcome to the community

I'm sorry we can't give you an exact date for Studio '13's official release. It has to do with wanting to release a finely-tuned product with the kind of refinement that requires a beta period. And we’re working diligently to get the Studio '13 products ready for beta testing. It'll be a phased beta rollout with Articulate Quizmaker '13 rolling out in the next few weeks. Articulate Engage '13 and Articulate Presenter '13 will follow thereafter.

I hope that helps give you a somewhat better idea of what to expect, and I understand and empathize with your budgeting deadlines.
