Version 3 now available! The Platte Canyon® Storyboarder creates a Microsoft Word or PowerPoint storyboard from an existing ToolBook book. The document or presentation includes an optional screen capture of each page, field, button, and other text, question answers/feedback, simulation information, and other content - all in the same order top to bottom as in your book. New to this version is the ability to display the name of web graphic placeholder files used in your book. This is quite helpful for finding all your linked graphics. For the PowerPoint storyboard, you can now put field and record field content in approximately the same location as in your ToolBook book! Storyboarder also matches the font, size, and text/background color of your original ToolBook field/record field. This makes it a great fit for importing into other authoring tools that import PowerPoint files. Storyboarder can put the rest of the content in speaker notes and/or a contents textbox. You can also have an optional comments textbox on each slide. You can run Storyboarder in author-level ToolBook or download the complete ToolBook runtime installation.

The Storyboarder allows you these options:

  • Include All Pages
  • Include Buttons
  • Include Catalog Text Objects

  • Thank goodness for the Storyboarder…that has saved us countless hours on running PowerPoints and Word Documents for editing/viewing purposes.
  • The Storyboarder has been working out really good for us thus far. Great time saver!!!
  • Just wanted to let you know how well the Storyboarder is assisting all of our developers. We all absolutely love it. Here is something else that has helped us: I can take the captures folder and open a PowerPoint and use the insert photo album feature and quickly create a PowerPoint of my .tbk.
  • Great job. I really like it!
  • Storyboarder definitely got our authors' attention and stirred up excitement in the office over the product!
