Controlling Slide Masters when using My Templates
I have created a .storytemplate file that has loads of pre-branded slides that have triggers and navigation already setup for our instructional designers. I saved them as a template. And if I import them all into a file they work great.
However: The intent was that our Instructional designers would be able to add slides as needed while building the course. Not everything at once. But if you import them separately it is creating multiple master slides with each of the layouts attached even though they all use the same master slide in the template. This creates a huge mess in trying to deal with any changes you have to make to the master slides.
For instance. If I import 5 slides separately, they each import their own master as well as all layouts associated with them. And then in order to change the navigation or triggers or layers on a Master slide, it now has to be done in 5 places. Not to mention this drastically slows down storyline and makes it unstable when you have a lot of layouts in your slide masters.
Any advice on a better way to handle this would be greatly appreciated.
