Creating Functional Layouts

Apr 10, 2013

I was wondering if it is possible to create triggers and layers in the master slide view and have that applied to new slides that I create. I need to create the same slides again and again. While the master slide can be used for visual layout, I want to be able to duplicate the functionality also ... 

How do I maintain a database of functionalities?

Hi there Kapil,

Storyline allows you to apply multiple triggers to the same object. You can also apply triggers to master slides as well as content slides.

Here are the rules regarding the order in which all these triggers get executed when users view your published course:

  • If there are triggers on the master slide as well as the content slide, the master slide triggers get executed first.
  • If there are multiple triggers on the same object that are triggered by the same action (such as "on click"), the triggers get executed in the same order in which they appear in the Triggers panel in Storyline. (You can use the Up and Down arrows to adjust the order of triggers.)

To learn more about adding and managing triggers, please review this tutorial.

Also, if you haven't seen it already, you may want to check out this tutorial on working with master slides.

If you have any questions, or have any trouble creating your layouts, just let us know.
