Duplicate or reverse a storyboard

In Microsoft Expression Blend 2, you can now replace an existing storyboard with a reversed version of itself, or create a duplicate of an existing storyboard, by using the drop-down menu under Objects and Timelines. This is useful when you want to create storyboards that are mirrored versions of each other.

Reversing a storyboard differs from configuring a storyboard to automatically reverse when it reaches the end of its last timeline. For more information, see Modify a storyboard to repeat or reverse at the end of its cycle.

  1. With a storyboard open under Objects and Timeline, click the drop-down button next to the New button Cc294966.86937695-03dd-44ea-aa30-28d4029b3ad0(en-us,Expression.10).png.

    A menu appears that lists all the functions that you can apply to the open storyboard, together with an option to create a new storyboard.

  2. Click Duplicate.

    A new storyboard is created and opened for recording. The new storyboard is an identical copy of the original one. You can use the same procedure to change the name of the new storyboard.
