Large project organization

Apr 02, 2014

I'm interested in hearing recommendations for arranging and managing large Storyline projects.  One of the scenes I'm building is already over 300 slides, it will consist of several demos followed by a "try-it-yourself" for each topic. 

Is it okay to keep everything as one very large project or create separate projects for each scene?

Hi Renee,

I think it depends somewhat on your own organizational preferences. But for me:

Organizationally, I'd want each demo/try to have its own scene.It just makes it easier to "see" - kind of like a Table of Contents.

Also, since Storyline currently only allows you to preview a slide, a scene, or the entire project, during the development process it's often more efficient to break content up into scenes.

Hi Rebecca,

Thanks for the reply.  I don't think I did a good job fully explaining the content of my project.  The 300 (and growing) slides make up the project and I have them segmented into separate scenes.  I've never built a project of this size before, but from what you said I might be doing it as expected.

I think the question is more around overall file size - is there a limit to the amount of slides Storyline will tolerate before issues arise? 

For example, when I worked with Captivate, there was a recomendation (from Adobe) that you not exceed 350 slides (which was later increased, but as good practice we tried to keep it below).  When a project grew beyond, we split it into two projects.
