Change Storyboard LayoutLast Updated: January 30, 2020
The Storyboard Creator defaults to three blank cells when you create a new storyboard, but there are lots of options!
Change the Storyboard Layout
1. Click on the Layout button at the bottom of the Storyboard Creator.
2. A popup will appear with options to change the cell layout (left) and the layout of the entire storyboard (right).
Storyboard Layout Options
|Traditional Storyboard||A traditional storyboard is most like a comic strip. The cells are adjacent and do not have special formatting.|
|T-Chart||The T-Chart is perfect for comparisons, like “before and after” or “pros and cons”.|
|Grid||Use the grid to connect ideas or information!|
|Chart||The chart is just like the grid, but the row title boxes are placed vertically.|
|Frayer Model||The Frayer Model ALWAYS has four cells. Typically, the titles of the cells are “Definition”, “Characteristics”, “Examples”, and “Non-Examples”, but you can change them however you like.|
|Timeline||Show events in order on a timeline.|
|Spider Map||Spider maps are great for vocabulary words or examples on a central topic.|
|Cycle||The cycle layout is good for recurring processes.|
|16x9||While the 16x9 layout is intended for use with film and video planning, use this layout whenever you want a little more room.|
|Worksheets / Handouts||Use this paper sized layout to create printables for classroom or business use, or for some extra space for full page stories.|
|Posters||The poster layout is great for creating large scale scenes or poster projects. Select from two sizes of posters.|
