Align Flash object with Resources button outside of content frame
Jun 12, 2015
Hopefully I can explain this in a way that makes sense.
In my Storyline project, I am trying to use as much available screen real estate for the instructional content as possible; so in the Player Properties, I have turned off the Sidebar items (Menu, Glossary, and Notes) and turned on the Resources in Topbar Right.
I have created a custom Flash glossary search. It is a simple search panel much like you see at the top of any browser (rectangular window with magnifying glass). I color matched it to my project color theme, and matched its visual appearance to the Topbar Right Resources popup.
Essentially, you can type text into the search box, hit the magnifying glass, and a small popup comes up with all of the instances of the search term from the glossary. The glossary itself is loaded via XML.
What I would like to do is align my custom glossary popup with the existing Resources button in the topbar.
In the project, I can insert the Flash glossary and align it in position next to where the Resources text button appears. However, when I publish the project, the Flash glossary is cut off by the content frame (slide).
Is there any way to insert or add my custom Flash glossary to the Topbar Right or to make it so that the Flash glossary appears above the content frame and is not cut off by the slide border?
I have included a PNG for reference.
