Use shapes to design the layout of a slide, function as buttons, act as drop targets in drag-and-drop interactions, and more. Here's how to add shapes in Articulate Storyline:

  1. Go to the Insert tab on the ribbon, click Shape, and choose a shape.
  2. Click and drag on your slide canvas to draw the shape to your slide.
  3. If you want to add text to the shape, select the shape on the slide and begin typing. You don't need to add a separate text box.

The default fill, line, and text colors are controlled by your theme colors. To format a shape with different colors and effects, use the tools on the Format tab on the ribbon, or right-click the shape and choose Format Shape or Size and Position.

Tip: If you format a shape and want that same formatting to be used on new shapes in the same project, right-click the shape and choose Set as Default Shape.
