Changing Engage '13 slide/stage aspect ratio?

Hello Articulate Community!

Is it possible to change the aspect ratio for Engage '13 interactions such as the labeled graphic?  I want to use that particular interaction as a tab in my 16:9 presentation for a help screen that will be accessible throughout the whole presentation, but it doesn't fill the whole "light box" slide that it displays in.

Is there a way to change the Labeled Graphic interaction aspect ratio to 16:9 or at least have the 4:3 default size fill the light box slide?

Any help would be great

Thanks!

I'm afraid you can't do that. The Engage interactions are fixed at 4:3. I put in a feature request during the beta test to have this changed but So far no luck on getting this changed. 


Thanks for the quick reply Nancy.  That's pretty unfortunate, especially since the positioning and padding of the engage interaction in the 16:9 light box slide is sloppy looking.  Well I guess my only option is to submit a feature request and hope they make a change in the next update

I know - it looks really bad!

Hello, glad I found this thread as I was about to submit this question.  So my company has updated our corporate PPT templates to 16:9.  As has been discussed, there is a lot of unused real estate within the Presenter player when I embed an Engage interaction.  Is there any update to expanding the Engage player to 16:9?

Hi Stephen!

The dimensions for Engage interactions are fixed at 720 pixels wide by 540 pixels high. If your PowerPoint dimensions are anything other than 10 inches wide by 7.5 inches high, embedded interactions will be centered on the slide and, if necessary, scaled down to fit within the slide.
