Variables Lost When Importing One Storyline 2 Project into Another One
I decided to run a test to verify what happens to variables when you import from one Storyline 2 project into another one. I made a sample project with some simple true/false variables (click a button to change the variable on one screen and the variable displays as a reference on the next screen) titled "test1" then saved off a second copy of it as "test2."
I opened "test2" and changed the names of the variables (so they no longer have the same names as the variables in "test1") but otherwise left the project the same. I then opened "test1" and imported "test2" into it. The slides appear but the variables from "test2" are gone. When I open the variables list I only see the variables from "test1," but their use count has increased by 1 each. It appears that the triggers in the imported "test2" slides have been changed to use the variables from "test1." But the displayed reference in the imported "test2" slides still shows the original "test2" variables in the text box.
Does anyone have any idea why this is happening?
I'm working locally for all of this. I'll attach images below.
