Are you kidding me with the Storyline 2!? There are so many features in Storyline 2 that should come as a free software update for Storyline 1.

  • Auto-recovery
  • Move objects anywhere on your slide
  • More animations, effects & transitions
  • Did I mention Auto-recovery for projects when storyline crashes?
  • Time-Line & animations triggers
  • A real text editor!
  • Auto-recovery
  • Navigation buttons after learner complete an activity
  • AUTO-RECOVERY! AUTO-RECOVERY! AUTO-RECOVERY

Come on articulate! This and probably a whole lot more from Storyline 2 should be included in a storyline 1 free software update.

Instead of giving us what is deserved in Storyline 1 aim for something bigger with storyline 2 instead. The future is not to be able to move around widgets on the desktop, the future is not to be able to re-adjust text and line spacing or even being able to move objects. Aim bigger and higher!

Hold up, this isn't a patch for Storyline?

Nope a £700 upgrade.

Articulate,

I am disgusted in this, first you release Storyline and have us all pay out for the new package, that is effectively Studio on steroids.

Now you release feature requests and bug fixes as a completely new package again?

Where does it stop?

I have Storyline 1 and will probably upgrade. Does this mean that Storyline 1 stays on my computer and Storyline 2 installs as a separate program or does Storyline 1 get modified into Storyline 2? When Studio went from '09 to '13, '09 was overwritten.

Also if I try the trial version for 30 days will I still qualify for the upgrade deal?

I agree. Looking at some of the features, imo it does seem like Articulate are charging for bug fixes and features that could have been included in Storyline 1.

Have to agree to Lars, I'll need to reset my expectation.

Agree with those who think that a lot of Storyline 2 should have been included in a Storyline 1 update (e.g., importing Studio 13 programs, auto-recovery). The new features - e.g., motion paths, sliders - are hardly worth previous users having to pony up another 700 bucks. Hey, Articulate, couldn't you have at least thrown your loyal users a bone such as a second character pack. It bugs me that a new buyer of Storyline gets a $999 character pack for a net price of about 400 dollars for Storyline 2. I did upgrade but now have real second thoughts. I'm now in for $2000 for Storyline - great program but too much.

And still no responsive layout as Captivate 8


See http://community.articulate.com/forums/t/24708.aspx for the reasons why.


THX for the link but it´s not really the whole truth.

Of course it is a lot work to layout the content for different screen sizes but it is worth the work.

Just rezising the content and then calling it "mobile learning" is for sure NOT the future.

I kind of agree with at least some of the disappointment here. If the HTML 5 is generated better in Storyline 2 than 1, then the first needs to be patched to include these fixes. The upgrade (or the full version) isn't cheap and if you're not an organisation this might hurt.

The lack of responsive templates or at least a solution to how it could be handled makes it more or less a dealbreaker for me. At least for now. What I'd like to see to make it a viable as an upgrade is a MUCH lower cost for the upgrade, at least for an introduction period.
