Tables in Storyline--they work!!!

I've been bad. I haven't spent time in the forums as closely as I should may have missed this.

I just copied and pasted a table into Storyline, and it came in as a table that I could edit! It's not perfect, but tables have always pasted in as images as far as I can tell! This time, I pasted in from an Outlook email message rather than PowerPoint. If I paste the table into PowerPoint, then into Storyline, it pastes as an image.

I had to pass this one on! This will save lots of time!!!

Hi Pascal,

Currently, Articulate Storyline doesn't have native support for tables. If you'd like to suggest this feature, please submit a request to our product development team for review. We take these requests seriously. In the meantime, here are some alternatives for adding tables to your Storyline courses. 

Good luck with your project!

My resolve to Storyline not having a basic table insert function was to create a "template" per se. It has multiple cells and rows, all individual. I tailor it to the specific table parameters that I need. Time-consuming, yes. Not ideal. But it works. Once you have a template, it goes a bit faster.

Hi Kate!

Cool tip!

Unfortunately, it does not work for me, as I tried to replicate your procedure using a new Outlook 2007 Mail Message with a Table and Copy/Paste, and it didn't work in SL2 :(

I'm guessing that you are using Outlook 2010?

Your video looks like you are using Outlook 2007, tho. :/

Can you confirm which version of Microsoft Outlook is granting you this wonderful ability?


PS: It might also be that your using Outlook 2007 Tables only works with Storyline 1. 

I'm using Storyline 2. ;)
