Possible Bugs with Grouped Objects in Storyline
I'm not sure if these are bugs or if I'm doing something wrong, but I've had the following issues (Version 5 of Storyline):
1) Trying to save a grouped object behaves oddly. If I have a grouped object and try to save it as a picture, only one element winds up getting saved. I had to ungroup the objects, select all of the them, and then I was able to save as a picture.
2) Rotating grouped objects behaves oddly. I was trying to arrange smaller circles equal-distant around a larger circle. I tried to replicate the way I would do this in PowerPoint: I placed smaller circles at the top and bottom of the larger circle and then grouped the two smaller circles. I copied that group, aligned the copy with the original group, and then used the rotation option to arrange the grouped circles around the larger circle, the degree of the rotation determined by the number of smaller circles I have (I had 30 circles, so I rotated the first grouped copy at 12 degrees, the second at 24 degrees, etc: 360/30= 12). This just didn't work in Storyline. The grouped objects did not rotate properly, and one of the smaller circles just disappeared entirely. I wound up using PowerPoint and then importing the PowerPoint into Storyline.
I have workarounds for each of these issues, but I thought I would report them in case they are a bug.
