Distinguishing Storyline 1 .story files from Storyline 2 .story files

Dec 19, 2014

I'm probably being a bit dim here but having just upgraded to Storyline 2 from Storyline 1 I need to be able to distinguish in Windows Explorer my existing Storyline 1 .story files from the Storyline 2 .story files I'm creating. What am I missing here?

Hi Andrew,

There isn't a way to do this - as the icons and the file extensions will look the same. I typically now include SL1 or SL2 at the end of my file names to help easily distinguish - or if you open a file in the new/older version you'll either receive a message about not being able to open it as it was created in a newer version of Storyline or a message to upgrade the file to SL2 and that a SL1 back up will be created.
