Hi Charles!

Unlike PowerPoint, there isn't a built-in feature in Storyline that will reveal each item of a bulleted list each time the user clicks. However, there are a number of ways you could work around this, such as placing each item of the bulleted list on a separate layer.

I know you mentioned you wanted to keep the list within one textbox, so I'll leave it to the community to share other ideas with you here!

You don't have to create buttons, but you do have to create something to click on.

I would create a textbox, give it an entrance animation and set it to animate by paragraph.

Then create a hotspot the size and shape where I want to click.

Write triggers to stop the timeline just before each line of text appears, and create a trigger for the hotspot to resume the timeline when clicked.

Check the sample.

Thank you both for your ideas. Those are both approaches to consider, but Alyssa's suggestion means more work for me and Walt's is probably too much to expect from a user's perspective. I wish it could be simpler - more like the PowerPoint options, but overall I like Storyline. I just need to get accustomed to it's differences. Thanks again.
