The two versions are independent of each other and both can be installed on the same computer. While Storyline 2 can support anything in Storyline 1, you will find that Storyline 2 has quite a few new features.

Already using Articulate Storyline and not sure if you have Storyline 1 or 2?
Start  by locating your license/serial  number by right clicking on your desktop link for Articulate Storyline, then choose ‘properties’ and  it should say ‘Articulate Storyline’ (if you currently use Storyline 1) or ‘Articulate Storyline 2’ (if you currently use Articulate Storyline2.) Still can’t find it? Please contact the Articulate directly for assistance at

Your trial period for this software is 30 days from the time you install. Therefore, we recommend that you install the trial version no more than one or two days prior to the first session. This allows you a few weeks to practice after the last session.
