Hi there Susan!

Unfortunately, if you've already placed characters on multiple slides, you'll need to modify each of those characters. I can certainly see how a feature that would allow you to change all the characters at once would make your life easier!  Can you please share your perspective with our product development team?  Thanks for being a part of the community!

Hello Alyssa

I have the same issue as Susan. I need to replace a character across entire e-Learning which has about 30-40 slides. Changing it slide by slide will take forever. Also what if client changes mind?

Sure there should be smarter way to do it. like a smart object in Adobe. I am interested to know more. let me know

Hi All,

I agree, there is no feature in Storyline 360 to replace characters at once.

Here's what I do.
I tried to replace multiple images at once by replacing images files after published.
In the picture shown below, I copy the filename of the generated image and delete the file, then rename Picture4.png with the generated filename on the left.

Thanks Leslie

This is taken directly from the details you provided.

For photographic characters, you can replace individual poses, but you can’t replace an entire character group and all of its poses simultaneously.

This is what people want that your software doesn’t provide. Your users are quite aware of how to use google to find a solution if one exists, so this return email of yours Leslie seems a little insulting in that it didn’t answer the discussion thread at all

The process is slow and cumbersome:

* Click on character
* Choose replace, list of all characters comes up
* Scroll through all characters OR use filters
* Find character
* Find pose
* Double click
* Done! Yay
* Click on character (same one that needs to be replaced but from next slide)
* Choose replace, list of all characters comes up
* Scroll through all characters OR use filters
* Find character
* Find pose
* Double click
* Done! Yay
* 2 slides down
* 48 to go 😊

Nope not efficient
This desperately needs fixing
