Fixing Bullet Point in Articulate Storyline

I was recently working on a project in Articulate Storyline that involved using a lot of bullet points. In general, I try to stay away from using too many bullet points in my e-learning design. In most cases, there is usually a better alternative if you dedicate enough time to being creative. However, in this case (for many reasons that I won’t go into) there was no avoiding it.

If you’ve ever used bullet points in Articulate Storyline, you’ve undoubtedly ran into this issue:


The above image displays a classic issue most of us have experienced – bullet points with inconsistent size and color. This issue, although annoying, is easily avoided. I decided to create a video to demonstrate. Enjoy!

    It’s also been great motivation to stay away from bullet points and do something more engaging like RSIs. 🙂

  • Very helpful, thank you.

    Never, ever use bullets in PPT!
    Aside from being really lame, Articulate will scramble them when the content is published. If you have a Customer who is paying for them, convert the elements into png and manage them as integrated images.

    Great quick fix Tim! Have you encountered problems with bullets and spacing in the notes section? Any tips for that?
