Suggestiongs and features for Storyline 3 (or maybe 2)
I havent found such a topic, so if it exists, please foward me there, thx.
Suggestion 1. Library Tab
This is really crucial and a major one for me. I have to drag hundreds of objects that I have created from my other slides and projects, sometimes opening 2 articulate instances to achieve that. PITA is what it is. Library whould solve that completely! It was realised in Flash eons of years ago and other designer apps. Come on, everybody needs that. We have a lot of the same objects, it would belogical to drag them from a library Tab. Actually, the absence of that Tab in 2015 app like Articulate looks wired.
Suggestion 2. Simple player deactivation\activation.
I already have a template to shut local player down (which makes it invisible), so I do it quick. And i NEVER use a default player, just never. But new users will have some hard time figuring out how just to get rid of that thing, with some googling and intensive reading through this forum ;) It should be a one button action not a dance with a tambourine!
Suggestion 3. Redisigned top menu system
I know that you are coming from Power Point legacy and the interface of Articulate is partially a copypast from there, but what worked for PP doesnt work for E-learning in the same way. I have to do a lot of pointless actions and mouse movements to achieve some simple things like changing font size or doing some aligh stuff. There should be one basic Tab with all the most common actions, and the layout should go on in a more logical usable way. Plus I would add an ability of user customisation for this too.
Suggestion 4. Movement of objects with keyboard
To precisily move an object I need to.. 1. Click on object rmb, 2. open window Size and Position 3. Click throughs arrows which I always confuse which way they move my thingy.. ohh wrong way, opposite side.. you know how lame it is. Please, do like in photoshop - simple arrow movements move an object on 1 pixel, ctrl+arrow move it 10 or 20, whatever. Or the opposite way. Right now is very uncomfortable.
I hope you dont get me wrong, I am not tring to blame you or anything, just some constructive critisim from a user perspective :)
Good luck on next updates of our beloved app!
