Triggers on Master Not Displaying on Slides

Jan 10, 2017

I need to add three triggers to nearly 200 slides in a Storyline 2 file, and doing this one by one would be just painful. I read that you can add them to the slide master. I did a copy/paste onto the slide master for all slide master slides, but I am not seeing them show up on any of my slides. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Hi Lauren, thanks for reaching out. With 200 slides, I feel your pain! Unfortunately there isn't a built-in option to add a particular trigger to all slides, but that sounds like a great idea to share with our product development team. Would you mind telling us more about your needs in the form of a feature request?

For now, I might suggest that you create the trigger on one slide, copy it, then paste it to the remaining slides:

  1. In the Triggers panel, select the trigger you want to copy.
  2. Copy the trigger by pressing Ctrl+C or by clicking the Copy icon (looks like two pieces of paper).
  3. Select one or more objects on the slide where you want to paste the trigger, then press Ctrl+V or click the Paste icon (looks like a clipboard).
  4. If you need to tweak the new trigger, double-click it to open it, or click any blue underlined text to make a different selection.
