Delete key not working on keyboard when in Storyline slide

Aug 01, 2012

Hi, Heroes:

When I select an object (say an image) on my slide and hit the delete key on my keyboard, the object doesn't delete. I have to right click and select "cut" (or go down to the timeline), which is slowing me down.

I'm on an iMac running Windows 7 via Parallels. Is this just me? Thanks so much. --Daniel

If the bounding line on the object is a dashed line, it is not actually selected, so Delete won't work. You need to click on the boundary to get a solid line, then delete.

Another problem you can have is clicking an object with text, which automatically selects text editing, and Delete will delete text. Again, click the bounding line.
