Lines Can't Be Converted to Other Shapes

Article Last Updated

This article applies to:

When you select a line or arrow that you've inserted into your Storyline project, you'll find that the Change Shape option on the Format tab is disabled (grayed out).

Since lines are one-dimensional objects, they can't be converted into two-dimensional shapes (rectangles, circles, etc).

However, if you need to change the beginning or ending style of a line (for example, if you need to add an arrow point to the beginning), you can do that without recreating the line. Here's how:

  1. Right-click the existing line, and select Format Shape.
  2. Then select the Line Style tab on the left edge of the window.
  3. Use the Arrow settings section to change the beginning and ending type and size.
