Applying Custom Layout to Try Mode Screens

Aug 14, 2013

I am trying to figure out how to apply my slide layout on the try and test screens after they have been inserted into the scene. I am attaching the example to help explain my question.

After inserting the screens, I right clicked, selected layout, and then selected Title Only. I am given the title text box, but the color banner that goes beneath the Screen title does not pull through. (See slides 1 and 2).  I decreased the size of the screen recording, but that only created white space on the bottom of the screen. I almost appears the inserted screen file is centered vertically and horizontally

If I insert it as a single video, I am able to apply the layout. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Cheryl,

By default, background graphics are hidden when inserting a screen recording in step by step mode (except when it's inserted as a video on one slide). To allow your background graphics (in this case the template) to show just select all the screen recording slides from the Story view tab and right click. Select Format Background -> Fill and uncheck the "Hide background graphics" check box. 

I fixed it on the one you sent along, and have reattached it here for you.
