Disabling / Overiding quizz presets in Storyline

Jul 13, 2017


When I create a new questions, I tipycally add shapes such as rectangle. Then, from the "Form view"  I select the rectangles that I want to be selectable answers.

Storyline, automatically adds a "selected state" that uses blue glow picture effect.

Storyline adds a blue glow effect on the selected state of selectable objects in a quizz

The shapes I'm using already have a selected state and I don't want to use the blue glow effect. 

Is there a way to prevent storyline from adding this blue glow picture effect ? Having to manually change the shapes is tedious and a waste of time for me.

Any other user having the same issue ? How do you do when you create multiple questions and want a consistent use of states without having to manually get rid of the blue glow effect

The adding of the selected state is designed to "Help" you in building those question slides, but I see your point.

I typically - let Storyline add the "Selected State", then I edit one of those object's states to my liking. (Remove the blue glow, etc.)  After that, I use "Format Painter" to quickly paint all of the other states.  Turns out to be pretty quick and painless.

Hope that helps.
