What are feedback masters in Storyline 360?
In Storyline, you have slide masters for your normal slides, but you have also feedback masters that you can use to change the look and feel of all slide layers and feedback layers at once at the way you want.
Now, let’s look how you can open the feedback masters. To open feedback masters, you go in Storyline to your view tab, click on feedback master to open the feedback master view. Now, if you ever worked with slide masters in Storyline before, the layout of the feedback master view will look familiar to you.
So here you have your feedback master and under, there are several layouts. By default, there is a correct layout, an incorrect layout, try again layout, a reveal feedback layout, a thank you feedback layout, and also a blank layout. And you can see here that you can have multiple feedback masters in one course. Every layout inherits all the properties of the feedback master, so if I click the correct layout for instance here, and suppose I uncheck the title and I check hide backgrounds, now the title won’t be inherited of the feedback master and also the background won’t be inherited of the feedback master.
We’ll put it on again. You’ll see now all items will be inherited so if I place on the feedback master and place the button to the left here, you’ll see it will be placed to the left on all feedback layers under the slide master.
So if you change something on your feedback master, the change will be executed in all layouts. If you change something on this layout, for instance, so I’ll pick the button here and I place it to right. It will only be executed on this layout and all the other layouts, the button is on the left, just like on the feedback master.
How to Add a new Feedback Master
So just as I’ve told you earlier, it’s possible in Storyline to have multiple feedback masters and you can add new feedback master to your Storyline course. To do this, you’ll see I have now one, two, three, four feedback masters. And if I click here on insert slide master, a fifth feedback master, it’s now here, will be added to the feedback masters.
Add Feedback Layouts
Next to feedback masters you can also add custom layouts to your course. So, for instance, I want to have a custom layout in this feedback master. What I can do here is select layout, click on insert layout, and a new layout is added and it inherits the stuff of my feedback master. And this way you can have layouts for specific slide layers in your course. And just like with normal slide masters, you can also rename your feedback layout by clicking with the right mouse and here to choose rename layout and change the title of the layout. And also, if you don’t use a layout, for instance, the try again layout, you won’t use it in your course. You can also delete it. You click the right mouse and click on delete layout and the layout is deleted.
Change the layout for existing Feedback layers
And last step is to see how you can change the layout of your slide layers. So I’ll close my feedback master view by clicking close. So I returned here to, for instance, my questions. Now, if you click your slide layer and click with your right mouse click and click for apply layout, you’ll see the slide layouts for your normal slides. Now, if you select a slide layer, for instance, this correct slide layer, you click apply layout. Then you can see all the slide master layouts. So now I can choose a new layout, for instance this one, unit one. So I click here and you’ll see that it has now been added to my course. And I can change the place of the continue button, for instance. So this way you can change the layout on one place for all the feedback layers in your course. That’s very easy. So I hope you have new ideas to use this in your next Storyline course.
