Well blow me down!

Sometimes, you ask a question and the solution is on a silver platter.

This IMPORT/EXPORT font-and-size-swap capability isn't just for translation any more.  It is a workaround solution for other font problems, such as globally changing font and size of notes on all slides, or on-screen headings, titles, or text elements in one step.

Thanks Steve!

I love this feature! I use it for lots of things. Sometimes I just don't feel like using the text features to enter stuff or will use a variable to carry some content. Instead of entering the entire text, I may use something like "s1e1_a" that correlates to a row in my storyboard as a placeholder. Export to the translate doc, open up my board and copy / paste like a madman. Re-import and make adjustments. 

Not sure this saves much time for stuff that resides on the slide, but it's pretty helpful for variable contents. 

It's also handy for compliance departments that like to know *exactly* what's in the course.  One of my favorite features since release. Handy as heck.

I'm going to chime in with something obscure that I noticed.  Let me know if this is news or not...

I had a trigger set on a png image which had a transparent center.  Tapping the image on my iPad did nothing.

After some experimentation, I realized Storyline won't trigger on parts of the image that have 100% transparency.  Makes a lot of sense that clear backgrounds surrounding an image are not clickable, but what of transparent portions in the center of an image, e.g., a doughnut?

Could be some interesting applications of this are yet to be realized.
