Add elements to existing group

Mar 16, 2022

My scenario is this:

I have a group of items which is relatively complex, it also has multiple motion paths attached to it. My client has changed the look and feel of one of the parts of the group which I need to update. I can't just edit what is there as it is a complete overhaul to the graphics inside the group. Is there a way to add new elements to an existing group thus avoiding the need to re-make the motion paths and update all associated triggers? I have tried re-grouping but (as far as I can tell) this loses the motion paths.

I have done more research into this subject and I see it is (YET ANOTHER) 'feature request'! Imagine how good Storyline would be if they actually added a small percentage of the features requested!

My fix to this to add the new elements to the normal state of an existing element already inside the group. It is not ideal but it will do.

Hi all!

I am jumping into this discussion to share that we just released Storyline 360 (Build 3.63.27628.0) which includes changes to the timeline.

New: Create slides faster with time-saving upgrades to the timeline. Multi-select objects and move them all at once. Choose where pasted objects appear in the stacking order or even paste them into an existing group. Align objects to the playhead or vice versa. And when the timeline is too long, you can instantly reset it to five seconds or shorten it to the object with the longest duration.

Now all you need to do is update Storyline 360 in your Articulate 360 desktop app!
