Preview in Storyline 2

Feb 05, 2021

Hi there,

All our courses are created in Storyline 2 and we use  the HTML5 output.

I understand that Flash is no longer used which is fine BUT I cannot preview my edits any more, it just gives a Flash icon.

Can the preview display the html 5 version?

Hello Emily and welcome to E-Learning Heroes. 😊

Thank you for reaching out and sharing what you are experiencing in your software.

Storyline 2 relies on Flash to operate, including the preview feature. Your HTML5 published output HTML5 output from Storyline 2 will continue to work in Google Chrome and Safari.

How the End of Flash Affects Articulate Apps and Courses

We recommend that you upgrade to Storyline 3 or Articulate 360 (which includes both Storyline 360 and Studio 360) as these apps don’t have any Flash dependencies and their HTML5 output works in all major browsers. Compare versions of Storyline and Studio to see all the new features you’ll get.
