Glossary - hyperlink to words in Storyline


Is it possible to have words hyperlinked directly to the glossary.  Meaning if a learner clicks a word within the training that happens to also be in the glossary, it will launch the glossary for the learner?

If not then how do the learners know what words are in the glossary, other then looking at a long list of words.  Seems hyperlinking should be a native feature and if so I can't figure out how to make it work.

It doesn't seem to be something you can do.  Perhaps it's an idea to submit via feature request to Articulate.

I have seen folks create a glossary on a slide and then add a tab to the top of the player to that slide. You could then create a link from a word to that slide.  Depending on how many terms you have, you might want to break the alphabet into chunks (e.g. A-F, G-J, etc) and add the coresponding glossary terms to the different slides.

Adding my voice here. Yes please to a hyperlink from the screen word to the glossary. I can highlight them in the text and explain in teacher notes but not at times where we are not using teacher notes. I can make pop out layers with the definitions on them. But that's cumbersome. It would be much better if glossary words had a consistent look which let you know you can select them and see the definition (ot atleast open the glossary for you with that word highlighted)

Thanks in hope!
