Articulate Feature Request - is DEAD?
Jan 07, 2015
Hello, community, and especially Articulate staff. :)
for the past several days my team has spent almost 8 hrs daily researching various thread and discussions pertaining to variables,especially slideNumbers etc.
And to our dissatisfaction practically each and every thread ends up with something like this:
" It does sound like something you may want to share in the form of a feature request. "
We have seen that simple
automated insertion into the slide( master or otherwise) was being requested each month for the past 2 years and NOTHING has been done.
Really, guys? for 2 years no one dared to fix these issues?
we have been laughing at the suggestions to
"re-educate our CEO" about using slide numbers, or to teach our clients how to make a screen shot, use snagit and other capture devices to demo to us what is wrong with our "stories" and direct us to the slide in question, or how we shall explain differences between linear and non linear builds etc. to our clients because we simply cannot use certain articulate features non-linearly.
Please, guys, automated display of the slideNumber on a slide is USEFUL to all, contrary to developer's common belief:
1. to the e-developers,
5. even CEOs - who do not care that we have to do the slide number of 100 insertion manually.
to what extent shall we learn deep coding to implement these features? Or shal we finally move to Captivate or flash CS6
We have been waiting for Articulate Storyline 2 and were shocked to see 3 major innovations(motion paths, slide triggers etc) and 1 correction to the text editor.
Now we are AFRAID even to ask what is coming to us in version 3 and do we really want it if our feature requests from past 2 years are not even implemented?
