Multiple screen support

Hi all,

I have a number of users who use multiple monitors, one for the software application and one for scripting etc. They would like the elearning to support/reflect this setup.

so my question is: Is it possible to build a module that works across dual screens? so that when they launch the elearning one part is on one screen and the second part is displayed on the other screen?


I am working on something that would have both elements on the one screen but it does look a little squished!

Hi Eric

are you talking about undocking the trigger, timeline, slide panels? sothat SL is just showing you the edit screen?

See if this tutorial helps you - specifically the topic Undocking and Redocking Panels

Something that had never crossed my mind but it would be cool.

It would be possible to achieve by using a web object or web page  opening in a different window and adjusting a variable that would adjust what was shown in the web object/page. 

The user would likely have to move it onto their second screen, wish i had time today to play with this one, writing a note to myself to build it when i have some downtime.

Hi Eric,

I'd agree with Phil's thought to have it be in a web object for the second screen - that could still be a Storyline course and you'd have to publish that one first and place it inside the main course as a web object. Definitely keep us posted on what you come up with - as it would be a curious set up to see in action!

Hey there, Lucio!

There isn't a built-in way to have various parts of a course launch on different screens in Storyline, but I'll look out for similar requests around this concept!

In the meantime, we'd love to hear more about how this feature could help you. Care to share more below?
