Try Mode to Test Mode

Sep 16, 2013

1) Can I turn a Try Mode Simulation into a Test Mode Simulation? I made a boo-boo and went through a lot to get to where I am right now at a simulation, but turns out it should have been a test mode simulation instead of a try mode simulation.

Can I turn it into a test? If possible, does it have any "side-effect"? Would I miss any cool feature that a Test Simulation (from the beggining) would provide me?

2) In any case... When a simulation is smaller than the stage, it gets automatically centered in the middle height of the slide. Can I pull it to the bottom center?

I do know I can do it when I enlarge the slide, then Storyline asks me what to do, but when the Screen Recording is brought to a larger slide, can I make it to align to bottom?

I don't know if I can turn a Try mode simulation into a test mode one. So, if someone know how to do it, would help anyways.

But regarding to my second question, I was avoiding having to "crop" the slide and then enlarge it, be cause I thought the that to "crop" a slide, was to actually "cut" whichever image that were left outside the canvas. But when the slide is resized, the image looks complete again, so great.

Hi Javier,

You're able to reinsert screen recordings within your Storyline file and then choose at that point to make it a Test Mode simulation. You could then go and delete the slides where you had inserted it as Try mode. 

Thanks for sharing the update on your second question as well.

I have a similar situation and I'm pretty sure I've figured it out. I recorded a set of steps on my screen that is in Try mode. Now I want to use the same screen recording in Test mode.

  1. I saved the Try Me as a Test.
  2. I created a new scene.
  3. On the Home tab I selected Record Screen, It showed my previous recordings.
  4. I selected the one I wanted and inserted the recording as a Test.  

I have to clean it up now and delete the other scenes I don't need.
