Working with Storyline becomes more easy when you have a good idea about the 3 views in its interface. They are different in their own way and have different features which make our work look good and neat.
The 3 views in Articulate Storyline are:
- Story view
- Normal view, and
- Slide Master view
You can find them in the view tab.
Today, in this blog, we will see how each of them is different and important.
This is the view you get when you first open a new or an existing flie. Here, we have scenes in which we insert slides. Scenes help you categorize the slide according to the topics or sub-topics to avoid confusion. We have one scene with a blank slide when you open a new file. You can add more scenes in the Story view.
This is the view which we always use while working on a flie. On the left, we see all the slides in the particular scene as thumbnails. The white page in the middle is the stage of the slide on which we work. On the right, we have the Triggers panel on the top. It shows all the triggers that have been added to that particular slide. And, below the triggers panel, we have the Slide layers panel which displays the slide layers we add to the slide. At the bottom, you have the Timeline where you adjust the timing of the animations on the screen.
Slide Master view
This view looks very similar to the normal view, but here we design the layout of the project. On the left, we see the thumbnails of different layouts. We can edit them to create different layouts. On the right, we have the Triggers panel and Slide layers panel, and at the bottom, we have, the Timeline. But in the Slide master view, these three options are used only if there is such a requirement.
So, these are the three views in Articulate Storyline. Proper use of these views will eliminate confusion while working. For more features of Articulate Storyline, stay tuned to my blogs.
