Identify where variables are used

May 27, 2019

I haven't needed it in a while but today... I wanted to find where a variable is set among a 90 slide .story file.

Somewhere along the way, the display of variable use dropped the slide numbers. While it is helpful to know the variable is used in a trigger on a layer, there's no information on which slide in a scene.

What happened?

Hi Sam,

It looks like 'Game Over' is the name of your layer. The layer name + scene name is how variables on layers have always been displayed. I confirmed in Storyline 2 and rolled back to Update 23 in Storyline 360 to double-check.

If you feel like you may need to track down specific layers, perhaps including the slide number when naming will help you track it down faster.
