Does Parallels 8 Play Well With Storyline?
Hey, Mac users--Have any of you upgraded to Parallels 8 yet? I'm curious to know if it plays well with Storyline. I would very much like to take advantage of the Retina display support and other enhancements of Parallels 8, but only if it doesn't introduce issues with running Storyline. I submitted a query to Articulate Support, but all they said was that they haven't tested it yet--and didn't say when/if they would.
By the way--so far, while I'm keeping the "Shared Profile" box unchecked per Articulate's instructions, I am sharing file folders between Mac and my virtual Windows 7 install, and I'm not having any major Storyline issues. So maybe the Articulate documentation on best practices for running Storyline in Parallels is a bit old at this point? The only real quirk I've found so far is that once I've imported any slides from a PPT Storyboard file, that PPT file's icon thereafter takes on the Articulate logo (with the Parallels logo superimposed), and then launching the PPT file initially launches Storyline rather than PPT. But I find after closing Storyline, the second time I open the PPT file, then it opens PPT correctly. Not ideal, but better than having to keep files in two separate sets of Mac vs. Windows folders.
If anyone is using Parallels 8 successfully with Storyline, I would very much appreciate knowing. Thanks!
