Hi Donna,

First, welcome to the E-Learning Heroes community! We're glad you're here. 😀 

Are you trying to set up the slide master in Presenter first? You should modify slide masters for quizzes in Quizmaker itself using the steps here. It's also good to note that The slide background color from the Presenter player will show behind embedded quizzes. To change the color, see the user guide here. 

Let me know if you need any other help!

I finally figured out that I could use the Master slide layouts in Quizmaker to DUPLICATE what I already did in Presenter. This is not a best option to have to duplicate effort. In addition, Presenter uses inches measurements while Quizmaker uses pixels, so it is difficult to get them to line up properly.

It would be nice to just be able to insert a quiz slide and results slide into the Presenter slides without having to create a duplicate Master slide. It would be nice to not have to add a Master Slide for every quiz question. This is necessary right now to display the page number in the footer. Any changes to the slide position requires us to remember to manually change the master slide layout.

This is what I ultimately came up with. Having to do all this extra work takes the conversion from PowerPoint to a web-based training from simple to complicated.

Quiz with Title and Footer

Hi Dianne.  Thanks for honestly sharing your thoughts, here.  It sounds like you needed some custom components to fit together, and that created some extra legwork for you.  I'm glad you were able to get your project to come together.

Hoping next time is a bit more smooth.  Just let us know if you need any help!

Is there any plan to allow us to just insert an Engage interaction or a Quizmaker quiz block on a slide without having to show a Master background to get the title and footer elements? It seems like the slide size funtionality should not resize to fit the entire slide. If I want 300x400, then allow it to be that size otherwise, it seems like the custom size just isn't really working the way we would expect.

Hi Dianne,

It's not something on our public roadmap yet, but we're always looking to enhance and add features that would help a lot of users. I can pass your idea along to our team, and you're always welcome to share thoughts directly here as a  feature request too. 

As for sizing, Presenter '13 supports custom slide sizes, but Engage dimensions are fixed at 720 pixels wide by 540 pixels high. As a result, interactions in Presenter may not fill the slide.
