Marker button not working in Storyline 2

Oct 08, 2015

Hi There!

I'm in the process of designing a course and I want to add the simple Markers for additional information. It allows me to insert the marker but does not open up the view bubble to insert the text...

What's going on?

I've been using Markers a lot. I click on Insert, click on Marker, choose a Marker, click once on it, the crosshair opens in my Storyline slide, and when I click the Marker and the text bubble appear.  

For me. I'm having other kinds of marker problems: when I publish or preview a slide there's a long lag between when the Marker appears and when I can click to open the text bubble.

Hi Sarah,
Thanks for responding…
I have tried that and it doesn’t work either..funny thing…when I click a new template slide it worked there… but I can’t get it on my original slides…so I am doing a lot of cutting and pasting…
