Here's how to choose effects and fonts for Articulate Engage interactions. (Click here to learn about theme colors.)

  1. Go to the first tab on the ribbon (its name corresponds to the type of interaction you're building), and click Interaction Properties.
  2. Select the Colors and Effects tab on the left edge of the window. (This tutorial covers effects. To learn about creating, editing, and selecting theme colors, see this tutorial.)
  3. Choose how elements of your interaction should appear on the screen. Select one of the following animation effects from the Animate steps using drop-down:
    • Full: This means that each transition is fully animated. When learners move through your interaction, elements on the screen move into place in succession.
    • Fade: This means that elements of the screen fade into place in succession (rather than moving).
    • Appear: This means that all elements of the slide appear at once; the screen doesn't build with any fades or animated movements.
  4. Choose how images and videos should display. Select one of the following styles from the Media border style drop-down:
    • Rounded Corners: This gives your media slightly rounded corners and a shadow.
    • Drop Shadow: This adds a shadow and a thin border to your media.
    • None: This displays your media without any shadows or borders.
  5. Choose when you want to hear sound effects. Select one of the following options from the Play sound effects drop-down:
    • No sound effects
    • On click
    • On hover and click
  6. Choose a Title font. The title font is used for the title of your interaction and the title of each individual step.
  7. Choose a Content font. The content font is used for the details of each step in your interaction.
  8. Click OK to save your changes.
