Can't get Presenter Player large enough

My publish player is smaller than I would like.  I've been working with a 16:9 format in PowerPoint 2010 where I have a custom size set as 13.33 x 7.5 inches.

In the Articulate ribbon of PowerPoint I went to the Player Properties and selected the Other settings.  I have the following settings:

Browser size: Resize browser to fill screen

Player size: Lock player at optimal size

Launch player in new window (display window with no browser controls and allow user to resize browser)

Any tips on how to get a larger player...my text and videos look quite small with these current settings.

Thanks!

Hi there Eric, 

I believe this may be related to an issue we recently discovered regarding custom PowerPoint/Presenter slide sizes. 

Can you take a look at the thread below and let me know if this sounds like the issue you're experiencing, please?

Presenter 13: PowerPoint Page Setup vs. Published Size

Thank you!

I was able to get my 16:9 (13.33 x 7.5") PowerPoint to fill the screen nicely.  I had to tweak the "other" settings in the Player Properties with the following changes:

Browser size: Resize browser to fill screen

Player size: Scale player to fill browser window

Launch player in new window (display window with no browser controls and allow user to resize browser)

With settings my published player opens in a window that is as large as the screen.  The only quirk I see is that even though I have not selected "Allow user to resize browser" I can still resize the browser window of the published presentation.  That may be a bug to investigate.

Why this doesn't work with "lock player at optimal size" I don't know, but the above settings worked for me.

Hi Eric and Jack!
