Storyline 2 upgrade questions

If I upgrade from Storyline 1 to Storyline 2 (for $698 before Sept 30th), will I still be able to have Storyline 1 on the same machine? Or does the upgrade overwrite Storyline 1?

Also, does the upgrade pricing for Storyline 2 increase to $1398 after Sept 30th?

Finally, if I do upgrade, I assume I'm able to open all my Storyline 1 files and use the Storyilne 2 feature (I'm especially interested in being able to re-export to the Mobile Player for Android).

Sorry for the slew of questions and thanks in advance for your answers... this community has always been so great!

Hi Leon - here are answers to your questions:

You can run Storyline 1 and Storyilne 2 on the same system. The upgrade does not overwrite Storyline 1. Of course content created in Storyline 2 cannot be opened in Storyline 1, however anything you create in Storyline 1 can be opened in Storyilne 2.

The upgrade price of $699 does not expire after Sept 30. That refers to the new purchase license (non-upgrade) promo which most likely will be rolled over and extended.

Yes you can open Storyline 1 content, and work with it, in Storyline 2.

Appreciate your questions and support of our community -

You will love Storyline 2!

Just to clarify... if I have Storyline 1, I will be able to upgrade to Storyline 2 well after Sept 30th? I guess screenshot from the web site made me think Sept 30th was a hard deadline. I am looking to upgrade at $698, but I'd like to try it first, and not sure my organization can push through the paper to buy before Sept 30th.

Hi Leslie,

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly.

When I go to that link and try to get to the Storyline 2 'Buy Licence' page, I get sent to a 360 page (https://articulate.com/p/storyline-2#license ) and just keep getting pushed around in circles.

If you have a direct link to the Storyline 2 Buy Licence page, that would be great!

Thanks,

Rick

yeah, i guess i missed all the great 'extras' that were sometimes
offered but am grateful that i am not locked into an annual fee - all my
storyline work is unpaid 'prep', in the hope that someday i'll find work
where someone wants to pay me to use it. that would be terrific! it's
such awonderful environment to create in.
