Articulate Storyline Freezing
May 19, 2015
I'm running into an issue with my articulate storyline 2 where every so often is seems to freeze up in different ways.
The first time was yesterday, where it froze on me but Windows did not recognize it as being frozen, but the whole program was unresponsive. I brought up the task manager and as far as windows was concerned it was not "Not responding", but I could not interact with the program at all. This happened while I was editing the text in some markers.
The second time was today, I'm just editing some slides and it freezes on me again! This time I can interact with the program still, but now the screen remains frozen. I can jump to new slides on the SCENE menu, click the ribbon buttons, move objects on screen, but the screen itself doesn't update so I cant see any changes I'm making to the project. I can actually interact with the whole program, and I assume make edits to the storyline file, but the screen remains frozen in place. this happened while trying to paste a zoom region into a slide.
So now I'm concerned that i accidentally moved or deleted something and i cant tell if it actually affected my course because the area where we see what is actually on the slide is frozen.
The ways the storyline is locking up on me is odd, but its making me lose hours of work. I just through I would bring up this issue in case other people were experiencing this sort of odd freezing behavior. I did not experience this before the latest update.
I can confirm I'm working locally and I will reinstall storyline very soon. If anyone has any other advice I would appreciate it!
