Change the Selected state on multiple instances of the same button
Is there any way to select more than one instance of the same button, on the same page, and change the SELECTED state (or indeed any state) so that all of the buttons have the same SELECTED state?
- I created a quiz a while ago and used button style #1 (blue, default button style) as a place holder, with an Icon (again the built-in ones that are in Storyline). I then went in this year and changed the button to a picture fill instead of the blue.
- Well, when I did that the SELECTED state of each button did not change! It stayed exactly the same as the original blue button I format I had used as a placeholder!
- I noticed that Storyline would not let me match the SELECTED states for each of the buttons on the page, even though they were the same type of button. I had to click on the first button, click on States tab in the editing area, then click on the SELECTED state, edit that state, and the follow up with the same actions for EACH AND EVERY BUTTON. Very frustrating!
- So, lesson learned: I should have used a Master Slide with the button graphic I wanted to use as a placeholder and then used CLEAR buttons throughout my Quiz. Learn from my mistakes people!
But, still.....IS there a way to change a specific state for multiple buttons on the same page, using one set of actions, or am I doomed to an hour of editing states for each button?
