If you are using Microsoft Clipart, you should be able to paste into a PowerPoint and then copy and paste into Storyline.

Storyline does not come with any clipart (except for the Characters).  So you either have to use other sources, or create your own with Storyline's drawing tools.

If from Microsoft, I'll usually also create a PowerPoint to accompany my Storyline file, especially if I manipulate the Microsoft clipart some in PowerPoint before bringing into Storyline.  Nice sometimes to have a separate clipart file for archival purposes.

And I'll usually export out from PowerPoint as aPNG and then insert into Storyline.  If I have to correct or swap out the graphic it's always easy then to use the "Change Picture" feature in Storyline.

Did that help any?

Thanks, Jill and Gerry.  I've been using the methods you both suggest but it's a bit annoying.  I like to deconstruct clipart images and reconfigure them, and it's just a hassle to have to do it in PowerPoint, save it as a picture and then insert it into Storyline.  I'm also finding it very fiddly to construct animations, especially since there's no motion paths and emphasis on the animation tab.

I'd be sure to put you needs in feature requests for Articulate's consideration:  http://www.articulate.com/support/contact/submit.php?form=feature

More animations was a popular request during the beta.  The more voices, the better.
