Storyline 2 Colors Keep Changing

Oct 31, 2014

I'm a fairly new user to Storyline 2 but working on an extensive project. I have a patterned background on a few slides that are the same (same pattern, same color). I save my project often but every time I exit Storyline 2 and re-enter those slides take on a different color palate? Some turn blue, others turn purple and they should be green? What is going on? Thanks!

Hi Jessica

Wow...I can recreate your issue...

it's happening if you do it at the slide level or at the slide master level...and it doesn't matter what colour you choose initially (I'ved tried 3) - they all change to blue after you close and re-open the project...

Only happens with the 'pattern fill' option - not if you choose solid colours.

I think it's a bug in SL2 as it works as expected in SL1 - see screenshots below

I am having this issue as well and I just recently received Articulate Storyline 2 within the last 6 months.  I should have the most recent version. Considering these comments are from 2 years ago I don't know if that update will work.  

Do you know if there is something else going on that is causing this issue?  My project is 149 slides not including my slide layers. Every time I make a changes and save I have to fix all the colors. :(  Please advise. 

Thank  you,

I believe I may have fixed the issue. It seems to be within the design formatting. I am afraid to change it back because I already fixed all the issues. Would you still like me to send you the file? The file has content that I cannot share publicly, it is for new hire training on our systems and processes. I just wanted to make sure that if I attach to this email that it will not be view-able on the forum.

Thank you,
