Storyline - Set Alternate Text

Quickly set alternate text on one or more shapes.

 

Background Information

Although Storyline allows adjustment of alternate text for shapes, the user interface for that setting is inconvenient and slow. Especially when hundreds of alternate text descriptions will need to be set in a single session, the task might take multiple hours to complete in Storyline.

Using the Set Alternate Text action, all of the alternate text values for the shapes in a slide can be set within a few seconds to a few minutes.

 

Instructions

Follow these steps to set the alternate text descriptions for all shapes on a slide.
