Changing the White side background in Presenter

Dec 13, 2011

Hi Everyone

I tried to search this issue and it seems other people have had the same issue, but I could not find a difinitive fix.  Hopefully it is something simple!

I have a gradient background in my Powerpoint slides that I am publishing with articulate.  I was hoping the presenter would resize around the presentation, thereby eliminating the white stripes on either side of the presentation. 

If I had a white background this would not be an issue, as it would blend in.  I have noticed some people have produced presenter templates with different colour backgrounds, but unsure how to do this.

Your help would be greatly appreciated

Welcome to Heroes, Matthew!

You can adjust the color of the slide background to whatever color you want. Go to Player Templates -> Colors -> Edit Color Schemes -> Accent Colors -> Slide background. You can modify the RGB or the Hexadecimal value there.

Is that helpful?

Is there a way of reducing the width of the player itself so it aligns more closely with the full screen view?  I dont plan on using the sidebar in the presentation.  I changed both backgrounds to black, but it seems that there is a slight difference in the two colours, even though the colour codes do appear to be the same.  If I could change the width of the skin or player itself that would help solve this issue. I was playing around with the optimize/lock size of the presentation, but I do not think that is the fix here, unless I am wrong.
