Template troubles - Storyline 2
Searched around a bit for an answer to this but nothing came up...
Two questions/issues actually.
I created a file in Storyline 2, changed the size to be 16:9, made a few changes to the master slides and layouts, then saved it as a .storytemplate file. The problems I'm having:
1. How do I (easily) create a new file from this template? When I open Storyline I see "New Project," but I don't see an option to create a new .story file based on my .storytemplate file. If I proceed and create a new file and then click "New slide" I can insert a new slide(s) from the template but the project by default is 4:3, not 16:9.
If I instead use Import from the splash screen and choose Import from story template, I get to the same place.
The workaround I've used is to go to the .storytemplate file and double-click it. After telling Windows that it needs to use Storyline to open it, it looks like it creates an untitled .story file. Just wondering if I am missing something.
2. In master slide view, I gave the default slide master a custom background - an image. Then I created new layouts and gave them their own custom background images as well. These are section divider slides...one is orange, another teal, etc. When I get out of Master slide view and into Story view, I can insert new slides, no problem. However when a slide is visible in the filmstrip and I change it from one layout to another layout that has a different custom background, the background often does not change. For example, I have the layout called Question with Media with the slide master background, but when I right-click the thumbnail and choose one of the section divider layouts, the objects on the slide change but it retains the master slide background.
Any assistance would be appreciated!
