Paragraph spacing issue

Jun 14, 2017


I'm experiencing a problem when another user opens up my Storyline 2 file as the paragraph spacing I had in place changes and so my text appears in different places to them.

Is there a way to lock my paragraph spacing on the file or an easy way for them to revert to my settings?

Hey John!

That definitely sounds strange. I'm happy to help, and I have a few questions for you so I can better understand what's happening here:

  1. Are you working locally (from your desktop or C:Drive) or are you working from a network drive?
  2. Is this happening in the .story project file itself, or the published output?
  3. How are you sending the files?

Let me know!

Hey John!

Thanks for those details.  

When working on an Articulate Storyline project in a collaborative environment with other developers, use the following workflow:

  1. After creating, editing, or publishing a Storyline project on your local hard drive, copy the project file to your network drive for storage and sharing.
  2. When you need to edit or publish the story again, copy it back to your local hard drive.
  3. Edit and publish as necessary.
  4. Repeat steps 1-3.

By working with the project files on your local hard drive, you'll prevent loss of resources, file corruption, and other erratic behavior that can occur due to network latency.

Also, check out this article by Tom Kuhlmann for information and video instructions on using a couple of free applications that'll synchronize your local files with a network drive.

When your file is formatted the way you need it to be, try using that workflow and not opening it on the network drive at all before copying it your local drive to open it.

Let me know how that goes for you!
