Copying Control Buttons Crashes Storyline

Sep 08, 2015

Hi, All!

This may have been posted elsewhere, but I could not find it quickly.

When I insert control buttons (like on learning review questions), if I select the first button I place and try to copy it for other answers on the question slide, Storyline crashes. I have to put each control button on one at a time, formatting each, etc.

Anybody else run into this, and more importantly, is there a fix for it?


Thanks in advance!

Articulate crashes when copying radio buttons. Is the only solution to replace the template?
I have 4 questions with true/false. Each reply shows a different layer. Each time I try to copy a radio button Articulate crashes (I cannot use the freeform, therefore I use insert/controls/radiobuttons.

Thanks for your advice.


I have added an attachment showing which template I use.

Hi Christie,

Thank you for your reply.

Copying/Pasting radio buttons in a new project works fine.

I have created a base file, which I use to start new projects.
Everything works fine, only the radio buttons, as far as I know, cause troubles.

Now I use the workaround creating the radio buttons in a new project, copying it to the current project.

Still remains the facts that radio buttons still can cause crashes of SL2 with update 9.

Looks like a problem that needs to be solved eventually.

Kind Regards,

Hi Rene,

If you're seeing it occur in one file, or this file that you use as a base to start other files I'd want to look further into that specific file. You're welcome to share it here with us using the "Add Attachment" button and I'd also advise checking that you're adhering to the general guidelines here for working on files to prevent odd behavior and elements of corruption.
