Sure thing! Are you referring to differences in the system requirements, specifically for your setup of Windows 10 with Parallels? Articulate 360 is compatible with Windows 10 (32-bit or 64-bit) and Mac OS X 10.6.8 or later with Parallels Desktop 7+. The full system requirements are listed here. Let me know if you'd like any more information!

I also would love to see a native version of Storyline! While running the Mac/Parallels/Windows setup is okay, it's also very costly over time. In addition, there is double support because you have to have both the Mac OS and Windows support thus, it makes trouble shooting much more involved. Some would argue just switch to Windows. My answer to that is, No. Why should someone have to bend to the whims of a company in order to use that company's product? If you want to reach maximum market potential, you have to be willing to go beyond what the competitor offers or at very minimum match them.  Judging by the number of posts on this issue,  I would say that you have enough people interested in a Mac version to warrant such a product.

So I purchased Fusion and Windows JUST to run Storyline on my Mac.  Had a windows problem and ended up having to reinstall everything.  Super painful not to mention when I run Fusion, my Mac sounds like a jet plane taking off.  Just adding my two cents for a Mac version otherwise, I will begin the search for an alternative.

Here's my Mac-SL-user dilemma for Articulate: I have SL2 and want to upgrade to SL360. Assuming there's a Mac version coming out in the near future, I'd rather not purchase 360 yet. This scenario often ends with having to pay another cost for the 'upgrade', even though it's the same software except it's for the Mac that we wished it was for in the first place!  :-\

So I'd like to ask: If I were to buy a new version of Windows-based SL and a Mac version is released, will I be penalized for having bought the Windows version? Or will I be automatically switched to the Mac version I was originally hoping for? Please reply, Articulate gurus. Thanks!

I love "Rise"!  It is an amazing and powerful tool.  To me, it takes away the need for 360. However, it is disappointing that I do not have access to some of the amazing content in the content library without running 360.  I wish there were an easier way to get access to those assets than windows.

Hi Isabella, 

I know our Support team uses a combination of VMWare and Parallels - me personally I'm on VMWare.
