Animating text in Storyline using a mouse click

Hi there, I'm new to storyline, but I'm an avid Articulate/Powerpoint user (for what it's worth)!

My goal: I want narrate and sync the animations on my slide simultaneously. In Articulate, I could record and use the mouse to click for the next animation to take care of narrating and animating at the same time. Is it is similar process in storyline?

No, it's a little different in Storyline. You use the timeline and have your animated objects appear and disappear.  See this tutorial: http://community.articulate.com/tutorials/products/syncing-animations.aspx

Took me awhile to get into doing things this way but now I really, really, really like it.  More powerful and more flexible.

I was looking for this, too, but I wanted to have better control over when each bullet point appeared (syncing it to the narration).  I found what I was looking for in this YouTube tutorial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O8qch5c-8w4 

Once you add the animation as by first level paragraphs, you can expand it using the arrow in the timeline so you can sync each individual bullet separately to the cue points. I knew there had to be a way.
