Slide Master

Apr 28, 2017

Can anyone explain why the slide master does not apply properly to the slides in the story?

I created a story and set the slide master notes section to Ariel 12pt black. 

When I am editing an existing slide I select layout and select the master I want applied. Nothing happens. The notes stay 9pt gray.

Hello Teri and welcome to E-Learning Heroes :)

I can see how this can be confusing. I'm not sure as to 'why', but I do know that the Notes within Storyline Slide Masters is just that. Notes. It does not carry over to the project or published as transcripts with the player.

The intent is moreso for content development note sharing.

I do believe that many customers wish to see this handled differently and I have put in a feature request on your behalf.

Hi Teri - Sorry for the confusion. That certainly wasn't my intent.

I was referring to any Notes added on the Slide Master. 

It sounds like you are adding your Notes slide by slide and these are populating as expected, correct?

If you're seeing something different, I'd love to take a look.

Also, it looks like your email signature came through when you replied via email! You can remove that if needed - quick Peek video here if you need help.

Leslie, this is a known issue that has gone back for years. You can open the slide master and format the notes section all you want (ie font, spacing, size, bullets, etc.). However, when you insert a new slide, using the layout master that has the formatted notes, the notes section defaults to font Articulate size 9 black single spaced.
