Media Library: other programs and cropping


I have two questions:

If I click the editing button in the media library, it doesn`t give me options of editing programms. It automaticly opens the file in Paint. Do you know if there is a way to tell Storyline: let me choose between programms? I see on youtube examples that at least there should be some options like "photo" and also Camtasia (which I also have intalled). My Affinity Designer would be great to have as an option, too. 

And a second question: When I insert a picture from the content library 360, make it bigger and crop it to the size of the page, and after that I open the media library and edit the picture in paint (e.g. draw on it). After returning to Storyline I see that the drawing is there, but the picture ist not croped anymore. Maybe it`s hard to understand: I attach a video to show you. Is it just me? A bug?


Thank you and I hope you are all having a good start into 2021!

Hello Claudia!

Great question! Cropping the photo on the slide customizes the image on the slide rather than the file itself. If you're looking to crop the image entirely, I'd recommend using the crop tool when Paint editing. Here's a quick look at what I see on my end. 

Also, it sounds like the default app for images is set to Paint. You can change this in the Default Apps section on your workstation. I've walked through this in the video as well!

Please let me know if you have any additional questions!
