Articulate storyline is a highly effective tool for developing eLearning courses.In each slide, we will have a title at the top. This slide title can be created with the help of the text box option from the menu bar. But, we can also INSERT the slide title, without using text box, through variables.

Here are the steps to create a slide title with the help of variables.

Step 1:

Create a variable as shown here.

  • Define a variable name (can include characters/numbers)
  • Type as a text field
  • Leave the value field empty
  • Click OK

Step 2:

  • Place the variable name in the slide, with a percentage symbol on both sides (%SlideTitle%). Now, adjust the text box based on the required position.
