Hi Jade -

You can right-click a slide's thumbnail and select Layout to quickly apply a new layout. If you're working with a group of slides, you can jump into Story View and Control-Click multiple slides.

Here's a good overview of working with slide layouts: https://community.articulate.com/series/articulate-storyline-2/articles/using-slide-masters-in-articulate-storyline-2

And another article on basic layouts in Storyline: https://community.articulate.com/series/4/articles/using-basic-layouts

Hi David,

Thank you for your answer. It helps me a lot.

But I have one more question...

I went to View tab and I modified one of my layout. But when I come to the slide I can't either edit the text or moving shapes. How come?

It's the first time I have managed layout I am pretty sure I did something wrong.


Thanks a lot

Ahh, my guess is you're inserting regular text box as opposed to inserting placeholder text.

From  your slide master, click Placeholder > Text to create your editable text. You can style it like you would any regular text box, but that text will be editable.

Hi David, 

Thank you for this quick but so useful overview:) I do appreciate your support and screencast videos.

Now, I know that I should use "placeholder" from the slide master to add editable text:)

I have designed a slide with shapes and navigation triggers, My question is: can I save this slide as a layout and save at the same time the triggers?
