Storyline - Set Timeline Names

Establish clear names for shapes imported into a project to ease the task of bulk management.


Background Information

After importing a slide into Storyline from PowerPoint, none of the timeline names for the newly imported objects will be set. One of the clearest examples of this effect can be seen when you open the Home / Focus Order dialog, as suggested in the following illustration.


Using the Set Timeline Names action will initialize all uninitialized names in the project to values that not only stand apart from one another, but are also equal to their original names in the PowerPoint slide, making it easy to track assets from PowerPoint through to a Storyline project.



Follow these steps to initialize timeline names on a slide.
