Slider ZigZag shape

Feb 08, 2019

I have a "bid roadmap" where I have a Hauler truck that has stops or stations where I want to display text boxes for the learner to read about the different process in our Bidding System. 

I could use the picture map, but I like the slider effect. 

Any suggestions?

Hi Alain,

Great question and idea to seek input on the community from - so I'll leave the how-to elements in their expert hands. 

I only noticed that your email signature came through when you replied via email. You can remove that if you would like by clicking Edit beneath your response. Here’s a quick Peek video if you need help.

I guess I can add extra steps in the slider while keeping the text box the same? That box is a separate layer. I guess I could just duplicate the trigger, right? 

I already made some adjustment to the development version. I will try to publish it on Review later today.

That being said, I do have to compromise between development time and 'perfect' design.

Hi Alain,

I do like the work you have put into this.

My suggestions would be:

  • Change the orientation of the truck in the slider so it is pointing forward (travels forward along the slider).
  • Some of the text boxes have a lot of text, I would think about cutting it down or splitting it over more layers.
  • Are there particular 'stages' to the bid process? Each stage could use a different color surround, this might also help to break up the text a bit.
  • Put a fade effect on the textbox, this is something simple that adds polish to the final product.
  • Finish line - the original image has a "submit" finish line, this would be a nice addition.
  • Minor thing, add some trees or buildings on the roadmap.

Uploaded new version. Thanks for the great comments, that is appreciated. Worked with Rise for over a year (2016-2017) before tackling Storyline. I learned a few bad habits that I am trying to shake.

Articulate Rise is great for quick publishing but does lack the flexibility afforded with Storyline.
