I’ve been playing around with a new menu with navigation controls.
Check out the YouTube video right here
The template contains
- the menu plus nav controls on the left and right side of the screen
- Dark and light grey versions for left hand section
- Dark and light grey, blue, red, green and yellow versions for the right hand side
Everything is put on a Master slide so you can adapt anything you want right there. If you have any questions or comments drop me a line in the comments or contact me directly.

Mike Enders shared a post called Create E-Learning Courses With Custom Learner Feedback in which he shared how we can change the default Storyline quiz feedback popups.
In this post he shared the wellness course feedback and I decided to template that one for Storyline 2 and Quizmaker’13 because it’s just awesome!
Since most Storyline projects I do are wide-screen I’ve opted for a 16:9 resolution. The Quiz-maker file is set in the traditional 4:3 format.
You can simply change the color scheme in the Feedback Master slide. If you want to change the default texts for the Correct/Incorrect/Try again titles and the Continue button you can do that via the Player > Text labels.
Looping animations in Storyline, by default there is no such thing (wouldn’t that be nice). However during a recent Articulate e-learning challenge about button animation and effects, an idea popped into my mind that I wanted to share with you.
Back in the days of Articulate Studio’09 there used to be a next button in the default player that started pulsating when the timeline ended. This was a perfect way to indicate users that they should click that the content on that slide had played out and they should click the next button to continue.
When Storyline 1 came out with its new player as well as Studio’13, the pulsating button had vanished as a feature in the default menu. Now some years later I still see the question being asked from time-to-time how to enable the pulsating button.
This is where looping animations come in. If I am able to change the appearance of a button with a fade-in and fade-out animation, two basic entrance and exit animations in Storyline, I could mimic such an effect. The fade effect should be really short and… it should loop until the user clicks that next button to jump to the next slide.
This is exactly what I made happen. Check the demo and tutorial video below to learn how. If you like you can download the Storyline 2 source file to see how I did it.
In this post I’ll share how you can add that little extra to your project by animating your buttons. In this weeks Articulate eLearning Challenge Community Manager David Anderson set the challenge to create creative buttons and he shared some awesome examples he found on the web.
Having seen these examples I set out to recreate some of those effects in Articulate Storyline 2… and it was easy!
Check out my demo and view the video tutorial to learn how to create these kick-*ss buttons! Feel free to download the Storyline 2 file to see how I put these buttons together.

Note that HTML5 does not support all Storyline animations. Be sure to try out different animations before creating your buttons.
