Articulate Storyline Vs Adobe Products

Dec 16, 2014

I am a rusted-on Articulate freelancer, having come through the ranks of Presenter in 2008 to Storyline 2 now.

what Adobe products are most commonly used

strong arguments in support of Articulate Storyline being better.

The unique selling point of Articulate Storyline (comparing with Adobe Captivate):

It is much easier to create interactions on the stage of a slide. You have the possibiliy to work with states of an object. In Captivate you must find a workaround for using the selected status.
