Import of multiple Powerpoint

May 21, 2014


I need to make a massive import of Powerpoint files in a lot of different Storyline files, due to a conversion with an old e-learning system.

One big help for us could be that for each Storyline file, we will be able to make import of multiple PPT files in a row, without needing to make conversion one per one.

Is there any way to do that with current Storyline version?

HI Ashley,

Thanks for your fast answer.

I already thought to have my multiple Powerpoint files combined into a big one, but as I want that each PPT should correspond to a scene into Storyline, it may be quite tricky...

If I have 5 PPT with 10 slides for each, your proposal will be to create a big PPT of 50 slides that I may import.

But, after that import, I will have to split back this huge scene into 5 scenes...

I'm afraid it may be even time consuming...

Hi Jacob, 

Yes, if you'll want them all in different scenes, you'll need to do the import individually. You mentioned using them in multiple Storyline files though, so I would suggest setting up a brand new Storyline file that includes these 5 scenes - and then you can choose to import that larger Storyline file into your other files and keep the scene structure for ease of moving them around.
