Here's how to adjust default settings for publishing, previewing, and saving projects in Articulate Presenter 360.

Setting Publishing Options

  1. Go to the Articulate tab on the PowerPoint ribbon and click Options.
  2. Select the Publish tab on the left side of the window.
  3. Set the following options:
    • Default slide duration: This determines the duration for slides that don't have any timed elements, such as audio, video, or animations. It defaults to five seconds, but you can change it. Just enter a value in the field provided.
    • Default animation timing: This determines the number of seconds between animations when they’re set to occur On Click. It defaults to five seconds, but you can enter a different value in the field provided. You can also override this setting by synchronizing your animations with audio.
    • Enable publish for manual uploading to Articulate Online: If you use Articulate Online to host your content, we recommend publishing and uploading your content at the same time, which is the default option. However, if you need to publish to your local hard drive first and manually upload your content later, mark this box. See this user guide to learn more about manually uploading content to Articulate Online.
    • Include slide master behind interactions: Mark this box to show your PowerPoint slide master behind embedded Articulate Engage interactions to give your course a consistent design. (For this feature to work properly, you also need to make the interaction background transparent in Engage.)
  4. Click OK.

Setting General Options

  1. Go to the Articulate tab on the PowerPoint ribbon and click Options.
  2. Select the Other tab on the left side of the window.
  3. Set the following options in the General section:
    • Automatically save changes: Mark this box to auto-save your changes as you build your course. Presenter will automatically save changes when you click any buttons on the Articulate tab in PowerPoint.
    • Preview range: This setting controls the second option on the Preview drop-down (Preview Next __ Slides). Three is the default preview range, but you can enter a different number in the field provided.
    • Reset Annotations: This resets the formatting options for annotations (fill, outline, and effects) to their default settings for new annotations.
  4. Click OK.
