Help! Trying to create a digital microscope in Storyline 360
Sep 23, 2020
I'm fairly new to Articulate, and I've been tasked with creating a digital microscope in Storyline 360. My first task is to create a step-by-step tutorial on how to use the digital microscope (there are 12 steps). For my first attempt, I created the tutorial using layers (lots of layers). However, it wasn't very elegant, and the student couldn't stray from the current step. Now I'm trying to create the tutorial using state changes and a dial for the coarse adjustment knob (raises and lowers the stage that the slide sits on), the fine adjustment knob (fine tunes the focus) and the diaphragm (adjusts the light). A dial feature was posted here that would work perfectly, but I can't get it to work. In the attached file, slide one is the dial that was posted here (sorry, I don't remember who posted it so I can give them credit). In slide 2, I've started building states and layers, but I can't get the dial to work. What am I doing wrong? Also, I would appreciate any suggestions or pointers for the microscope as a whole. I am planning to build a branched scenario, with branch 1 being the step-by-step tutorial, and branch 2 being the Add/Change slide that lets you pick the slide specimen you want to view.
