Basic layouts are common slide designs for titles, text, and media. By default, there are always at least five basic layouts from which to choose (but there may be more if you use a template):

  • Title Only
  • Title and Content
  • Question
  • Question with Media
  • Blank

There are four ways to add a new slide to your Storyline 360 project based on a basic layout:

  • Go to the Home tab on the ribbon, click New Slide, scroll to Basic Layouts, and choose a slide thumbnail.
  • Go to the Slides tab on the ribbon, click Basic Layouts, and choose a slide thumbnail.
  • In Story View, right-click anywhere in the workspace, scroll to New Slide, scroll to Basic Layouts, and choose a slide thumbnail.
  • In Slide View or Form View, right-click anywhere in the Scenes panel, scroll to New Slide, scroll to Basic Layouts, and choose a slide thumbnail.

Basic layouts are based on your design themes and slide masters as well as any templates you’ve added to the current project.
