Didn't save .story file, but published it to LMS. Can I recover somehow?

Jun 05, 2017

I created an exam through Articulate and published to LMS, but apparently didn't save the .story file. Is there any way to recover?

Hi Lauren,

The .story file isn't included in the published output - so there isn't a way to recover it from the  Learning Management System (LMS). 

Did you save a copy prior to publishing? If not, Storyline does not do an automatic save, but you may be able to find a copy of it inside your temp folders. 

Here's how to check: 

1) Open this folder in Windows Explorer: %appdata%\Articulate\Storyline 

2) Scan the contents of this folder for a file that starts with the name of your project. If you find one, copy it to your desktop. If you find more than one, copy the latest version to your desktop. 

3) Change the file extension of the copy on your desktop from *.tmp to *.story. 

4) Double-click the file to open it in Storyline. 

Hope that helps!
