I am currently doing a module on mathematics which requires that I insert decimals, powers and fractions into the content. When I copy and paste my text into the slides, my fractions "disappear". How do I insert these? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thank you. Tanya

Storyline doesn't have a mathematical editor, so some items like fractions may not be translated in correctly. You may want to look at setting them up initially in Powerpoint and making images out of them. I have also seen a recent reply about a math editor that you could use and insert the elements into Storyline.

Its the old story. Appears that not enough maths and science teachers use SL so our feature requests (from as long ago as 6 years) don't ever make it to the top of the feature request selection meeting.

Without an equation editor or the ability to use Latex, we can't grow the number of maths and science users. So our requests will always fall to the bottom of the pile.

Leslie, what would be more helpful is if you can peg by when we can expect a solution to this age old problem. One year from now. Five years from now. Ten years from now. That way I can better manage my expectations. Its been six years and counting already.

We aren't able to share information on a timeline or ETA for a particular feature.

A lot of pieces have to come together before that information is available to share, but as soon as we have more info we'll always update as many discussions as we can. This one is linked to the request in our team's hands, so I'm certain we'll share details here if they become available.

Hi Tanya,

Storyline doesn't have a mathematical editor, so some items like fractions may not be translated in correctly. You may want to look at setting them up initially in Powerpoint and making images out of them. I have also seen a recent reply about a math editor that you could use and insert the elements into Storyline.

Is there a way out for working with fractions now?

All I can suggest is: Patience and maybe Prayers.
