Matrix of Slide Master/Feedback Master Inheritance
Oct 21, 2013
I am wondering if there is a matrix or list available, similar to others that Articulate has published (i.e. Comparing Storyline's Flash, HTML5, and Articulate Mobile Player Output, or, How PowerPoint animations and slide transitions are imported into Storyline) that would detail the "inheritance" specifics of objects, variables, layers, slide triggers, object triggers, etc...... for Slide Master ----> Slide Layout and Feedback Master -----> Feedback Layout.
I would like to create a Slide Master with accompanying Slide Layouts to capture the preferred navigation features for a series of Storyline learning modules. I want to be able to apply the identical navigation and functionality across multiple modules with the least amount of copying and pasting into individual slides.
Let me give you an example: In a new Slide Master, I have created variables, Slide Triggers related to those variables and a custom button set. The variables are inherited by all of the layouts associated with the
Slide Master to which they were added. The Slide Triggers are NOT inherited - at least they don't show up in the right hand column under "Triggers".
The custom button set, added to the Slide Master, is inherited by all of the layouts associated with the Slide Master to which it was added, however, the Object Triggers are NOT inherited. And since they were added on the Master Slide (not one of the associated layouts), they cannot be selected for object triggers on the layout slides.
I also created a new layer on the Master Slide that I would like functionality to carry through the entire Master and accompanying layouts. This layer is NOT inherited by the layouts, and therefore, the triggers were not inherited either.
I have located a number of tutorials that address the various issues, but would love to have a single reference page (similar to those referenced above) that would show the inheritance hierarchy.
