Copying States from one picture to another

Aug 01, 2013

Hi there!

This is my first post, and I am very new to Storyline, but it looks like an exciting and different way of doing things!

My question may already be out there, but after an hour of searching, I thought I should ask.

Can you copy states from one picture to another? For example, I have 5 pictures which I want to have 3 states. Normal (which is normal), visited (which is greyed out) and active (which is increased contrast and brightness).  Rather than having to set these up for each individual picture, is there a way to copy the states over quickly?

Hello Debbie,

Happy to chime in!

Icons can't have states because they consist of multiple shapes, and only singular objects can have states. if you'd like to add states to an icon, you'll need to convert it into a shape first. Here's how you can do this.

You also can't copy and paste states since they only exist within the base object. You can however duplicate a state if you're planning on reusing existing elements. 

Let me know if you have any questions!
