Hi Vincent,

The typical import method described here is using Engage 09 as currently Storyline doesn't support a direct import from Studio 13, but if you have a published Engage '13 file hosted on a web server, you could then import it as a web object. Mike Enders shared the steps here to add the Engage interaction as a web object.

Hi Vincent,

Even if you purchased Engage '13 you can still use Engage 09, they just can't be installed on the same computer. I have mine set up to operate within a virtual machine, so that I run Engage 09 on a Windows 7 VM and then Engage 13 on my regular Windows 8 machine. If you'd like to talk with our Sales team about reverting fully back to Engage 09 you can connect with them here.

I am using Engage 09 (never had Engage 13) and I am still having trouble getting my Engages to play. When I am in the preview mode, I see a message that says "Engage Interaction is unavailable during preview". When I publish it, so that I can see if it will play, a blank template is there as opposed to the Engage slide. Please advise. Thank you.

Hi Donielle and welcome to Heroes!

To properly test your Engage interaction you'll want to publish it and then place within the intended publish environment as it's inserted as a web object. If you're not ready to place your content in a "public" location, you may want to try one of the options here: 

If you don't have access to a web server, here are a few free options to consider:

  • Tempshare: This is a free service provided by Articulate for testing Storyline content. Note: Uploaded files will be deleted after 10 days.
  • Amazon S3: Amazon S3 offers free hosting with generous usage limits. If you go over your limit, you'll be charged a graduated fee.
  • Dropbox: Place your published output in the Public folder in your Dropbox account to share it with others.
  • Google Drive: Change the story.html file to index.html, and set the sharing permissions to PublicHere's how.

Hi if I produced something in engage 13 can I then use engage 09 on a different machine to import it or will I have to have produced it on 09?

Hi Inka, I'm afraid you can't do that. Engage 13 has been completely redesigned under the covers so you won't be able to open Engage 13 projects in 09.

I'm really not sure why this isn't fixed yet. I've been watching and waiting to be able to use this software since Studio 13 was released. It's just unacceptable. It shouldn't have been released without compatibility, and for those poor folks who had been using '09, it overwrote it with an incomplete program. For me, it makes Engage completely useless, as I don't use Presenter.

Wow...I almost made the mistake of buying Engage '13 until I saw this thread.  Now it's clear that I need to uninstall the trial version and re-install my '09 version instead.  When these products become cross-compatible, perhaps I'll install again. Until then, this product is clearly not ready for prime time. Regrettable.

Lynsie,

I totally agree with you and feel your pain. I tried Articulate '13 and love the new features and would love to use them in Storyline. I can't believe we are still waiting for the promised update so long after the release of '13.

Good morning,

I was just wondering if there is an ETA of when this functionality will be in full use. I have just downloaded the 30 day trial of storey line and we (corporate) already use studio 13.

This capability will be essential for the development of our learning packages.

ps. storeyline looks great.

Chat soon

Hi Gavin and welcome to Heroes!

I don't have an ETA to offer - but it's something our team is actively working on. If you'd like to stay up to date on news from Articulate the best way is to follow us on Facebook, Twitter and subscribe to our Word of Mouth blog. 

In the meantime, many users are inserting the published Engage interactions into Storyline as a web object - so it's a few extra steps but a similar result. 

To do so, publish the Engage ' 13 interaction and then:

1. Have all of your Engage output in one folder.

2. Rename your  Interaction.html (Studio 13) file to "Index.html"

3. In Storyline,click insert web object and click on the folder icon. 

4. Direct Storyline to the Engage folder (just select the folder, no need to navigate inside).

5. Click Ok.

Now, when you publish, all of the Engage files will get pulled into your presentation.

Hi Raul and welcome to Heroes!

The support article here has been updated slightly as is below:

Currently, Articulate Storyline doesn't support importing content directly from Articulate Presenter '13, Articulate Quizmaker '13, or Articulate Engage '13. We're working to make this feature available in a future version of Storyline.

However, you can publish Studio '13 content for web, then embed it in Storyline as a web object. For example,here's how you'd insert an Engage '13 interaction in Storyline.

Just checking in for an update on a version of Articulate '13 engage that will run like '09 in storyline.  We need to purchase another copy of software and don't really want to invest in '09.   I assume that any update to Engage '13 is still a ways out (we've been waiting for quite some time already).

Ok, for anyone who may be looking at this, I found the answer partially, here https://player.vimeo.com/video/145579755 !!! great tutorial!

It now looks good, but will not advance from previous slide unless I click on the page in the menu. It also places my interactive slide at the end of the presentation rather than in the middle where I have it.

Dear Ashley

I followed all the steps on the video, the engage files where indeed pulled into the published storyline 13 , as you can see in the files I attached here, but it did't work. I see only a blank slide, as if I haven't insert the web object.

Im using the trial version of engage 13 ( is there any restrictions on the trial version ?)

Both storyline 13 and engage 13 are running on the same Win7 virtual machine, and saving everything on the same defaut parent directory named "documents/my articulate projects" .

thanks for help,

Fabio
