Creating a Typing Effect

Apr 12, 2021


Does anyone know how to create a "typing" effect in Storyline 360? I want the text in the text box to appear as if it is being typed.  I am not sure how to make that happen. I could not find an animation that would allow for this.

Is there any traction in this feature? Even adding the "Appear" animation that PowerPoint has (that lets you choose to have text appear by letter) would create this function. It looks like a pretty large number of people have been requesting this feature/some sort of feature that allows for a typing effect in various threads over the years, with one thread going back as far as 9.

Hi Isabel,

Great question! I appreciate you taking the time to share what you’d like to see in Storyline 360. I understand you'd like to know the status of the typing effect animation request. There currently hasn't been any movement on this as we prioritize other feature requests. We currently have this request logged, so I’ll go ahead and include your voice. We’ll update this discussion if there’s any news regarding this feature.

Thanks for reaching out!
