Formatting Hints in Storyline 360

Mar 22, 2021

I am creating a how-to training from a screen recording, and is there a simple way to change the formatting for all of the hint layers at the same time?  I changed from the default so the colors would stand out better and still be legible, but it seems I have to change it on each slide either manually or with format painter.  I have 120+ slides and would love an easier way!

I tried to change the Design template colors and was able to change the hint box color that way, but not the text color.  Any suggestions are appreciated!

Hi, Melissa,

Thank you for reaching out!

You can change the default font color for the hints by going into the Design tab, clicking Colors, and right-clicking the current theme colors to edit them.

From there, you should be able to select the Text color for both light and dark backgrounds.
