Storyline SlideMasters

Sep 04, 2015

Hi there,

I need help formatting my slide masters.  I have powerpoint templates imported into Storyline and saved as a .storytemplate file.  I have created a color theme and font style, but can't seem to save my powerpoint slides as slidemasters.  Basically, the original powerpoint slides have a setup and colors that I want to use as slidemasters.  I want to just copy and paste them into the slidemaster section, but can't seem to get that to function.  It worked one time before, but now I can't get this to replicate.  I know once I save these templates as my masters, all future import will conform to the design I need.  I've looked at the slidemaster tutorials, etc, and can't seem to progress.  Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi Emma,

Are you importing the powerpoint file as a whole? Is the powerpoint set up as the slides or the slide masters? If you're importing the slides into Storyline you could copy and paste those elements from Storyline to a slide master in Storyline. You mentioned you're able to save the templates as your masters - so that element seems to be working? If you're having a difficult time are you able to share a copy of the Powerpoint file here that you're working on?
