Am I missing something or is Storyline 2's support for importing PPT animations and audio just extremely limited?

Jun 28, 2016


I am doing a comparison of the PowerPoint import capabilities for Articulate Storyline 2 versus another e-learning authoring tool.

The other tool imports all of my audio and animation timings just fine.

Storyline 2 does not import any of the audio and only imports animation timings at the text box level - animations by paragraph are not preserved. 

Am I missing something about the import process (I have followed all of the tutorials available on E-Learning Heroes and the Articulate knowledge base)?  Is there another way to do it besides the "insert slides" menu?

Should I be packaging the audio differently within PowerPoint?  The files are all 320kbps MP3 files.

Please let me know.  It's a bit hard to believe that a slide-based e-learning authoring application as popular as Storyline 2 would have such difficulty importing PowerPoint content.

Kind regards,

Hi, Emil -- Thanks for reaching out here and sorry for your difficulties! While I will need to defer to your fellow community members to weigh in with their own ideas and opinions here, I did want to pass along a few of the tutorials you may have been referring to for others who come across this post and may not be familiar:
