Replace Icons in Templates?

Dec 02, 2019

Hi all. New user here. Leveraging templates to get up and running quickly, but I can't find a way to replace icons on slides (for example the light bulb icon in the hex shape on the introduction slide in Quantum template), while still preserving groupings and linkages. I know I must be missing something simple here. I only see one old forum post about this with no answers. Help appreciated!

Hi Brian,

Using the lightbulb icon replacement as an example, the simplest solution is to select the item (this will highlight the group Item 01) and ungroup the group.

Then select and delete the icon and replace it with the new icon of your choice. Now all you need to do is to re-select all of the components in the original group plus the new icon and group them again.

Finally, rename your new Group 1 back to Item 01 and recreate any links and you're done.

Hi Lucia,

I have had a play with the icon buttons on the Illuminate tabs slide and have been unable to change any of the icons. I have also searched the Content Library and not been able to find any of them either and so have come to the conclusion that these buttons have been brought into Storyline with the icons already attached.

Your only option, therefore, may be to produce your own buttons by creating a blue circle, adding a suitable icon on top and then grouping them together. Alternatively, you can create your buttons in Powerpoint, save them as picture files and then insert them into your slide.

Hope this helps.
