Hi Stephanie,

Are you using Presenter 09 or 13?

I found the following in regards to Presenter 09:

Presenter ’09 will publish your slide number only if the following is true:

  • You are using the default slide number folio that is included in your slide master.
  • In Header and Footer, Slide number must be selected.

If you copy and paste a folio symbol into a slide master or on a slide, the slide number will not appear in your published output. For slide numbering to publish correctly in Articulate Presenter, you must use the "Insert -> Slide Number" feature in the Master Slide of your presentation in Powerpoint. You cannot copy the tag and paste into different slides even if this will work in Powerpoint.

I have not seen any documentation or issues yet in Presenter 13, but I would suspect the same elements would hold true.

Hi Stepanie,

I am currently developing a module using Articulage 13 in that I want to add page number on each page. Could you please help me on this?

I have tried using Insert page number option in the slide master. It showing only for the Powerpoint slide show but not showing when previewing or publishing it in Articualte 13.

Is there any other option ??

Regards,

Hi Lokesh,

I found a thread on page numbers, here, that may help:

Slide numbers in footers

Mainly, Brian's comment:

"For slide numbering to publish correctly in Articulate Presenter, you must use the "Insert -> Slide Number" feature in the Master Slide of your presentation in Powerpoint.

You cannot copy the tag and paste into different slides even if this will work in Powerpoint."

Similarly in Presenter 09:

It will publish your slide number only if the following is true:

  • You are using the default slide number folio that is included in your slide master.
  • In Header and Footer, Slide number must be selected.
  • If you copy and paste a folio symbol into a slide master or on a slide, the slide number will not appear in your published output

I have not seen any documentation or issues specific to this in Presenter 13, but I would suspect the same elements would hold true.

Using Articulate Presenter 13, here are the steps I took that resulted in displayed page numbers in the published output. As shown in these steps, I had to add the hash tag to the layout slides since the 

1. In the Slide Master, click on the first header slide and then click the “Master Layout” tab.

2. Click the “Slide Number” checkbox.

3. Be sure it is the proper font. I used “Arial 9” for my presentation.

4. If the “Master Layout” tab is available for the other slides, repeat the above for the layout        slides.

      a. If not, copy the hash tag from the header slide and paste it to all of the other slides in the             Master.

      b. Highlight all of the slides and in the “Insert” menu, click “Slide Number” and then the check box. Click "Apply All".

      c. Close the Slide Master.

5. Highlight all appropriate slides and in the “Insert” menu, click “Slide Number” and then click the checkbox.

6. In the Articulate “Preview” tab, verify that the slide numbers are displayed.

Yes, that's the idea. So the numbers are visible onscreen.

Thanks!

Thanks, I appreciate your submitting a feature request. I am doubtful that it will help, however, because I see that this was requested a few years ago…

Maybe if I elaborate on the reasons it will help convince the powers that be to address this in a more convenient way.

* Page numbers would help me find my place again when I come back to the project on Monday (or any morning!).
* Page numbers could be used to label figures and illustrations and photos kept in a separate library/folder.
* Page numbers would make it easier for reviewers to tell me where they would like a change. (I know there is a review function on 360)
* Page numbers would make it easier for users to tell me where they are having trouble.
* If I could get the page number where user(s) left the course early, I would know more about their experience.
* There’s more, I’m sure.
Thanks again,
Bob

Thanks, Alyssa. You should also mention that there has been a lot of traffic on the forum where people posted all kinds of elaborate work-arounds and others posted the limitations in each of them, and no one is fully satisfied and there a lot of interest and room for improvement…

I'm using the most recent version of Presenter on an older PPT - it is over 200 slides, and the page numbers are not showing up - they show up on my PPT slides, but when I publish they disappear and show only the # symbol.

Please advise, this is an old thread... but I need help now to make a deadline.

Hi Todd!

Sorry you're running into this snag!

This sounds like exactly what you're running into - Storyline: PowerPoint Slide Numbers Aren't Supported.

Instead, you'll want to add the Slide Numbers using Storyline 360. Here are the step-by-step instructions!

We're here to help if you have any questions!
