Do you know that you can reduce the time taken to develop online courses, considerably, using the Slide Master? Once you create a layout, you can use it as many times as you want, for multiple eLearning courses.
What if you don’t have the source file?
Don’t worry. Articulate Storyline provides us with an option to save our custom Slide Masters, and you need not develop the same layout from scratch. Let us see how we can save Slide Masters in Articulate Storyline and PowerPoint.
Follow the steps below:
Step 1: Click the ‘Design’ tab
Step 2: Click the drop down arrow
Step 3: Select the ‘Save current Theme’ option
Step 4: A window with default location (where default themes are saved) will open. Now, type the preferred name of the layout and click the ‘Save’ button. This will save your current layout with .athm extension (with Office Theme for PowerPoint).

You are done! You can now use the saved Slide Master to develop online courses.
Note: Make sure to apply a blank layout before applying a custom slide master to avoid overlapping of layouts.
