Character cropping when I insert

I am running windows 10 home default settings. When I insert an illustrated character into my presentation the character is cropped, and it does not appear that I can uncrop them. I have found references to making sure my settings are at 96 DPI, but that is default for Windows so that doesn't make much sense to me.

 

Any help would be appreciated

Hi there, Brian.  In Storyline 2, the photographic characters had "cropped" options by default, but I haven't seen this behavior in Storyline 360.

Storyline 2:

Have you changed the story size in the Design tab?  Could you send a Peek screencast of what you're seeing when you insert your characters?

If this is happening on one project in particular, please share the .story file here, and I'll have a closer look!

Hi, Brian. Thanks for working through this auto-crop oddity with us, and I'm really sorry for any headaches. 

I saw that you're working with my teammate, Ronaziel, in a support case–brilliant move! I shared this latest detail in the case–you're in good hands there, and she'll be in touch with some more steps to try as quickly as possible. I'll also be sharing updates here once we get to the root!

If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to reach out here or to Ronaziel!

Thanks for giving us the opportunity to give you a hand, Brian! We never want to hold up your projects, and I'm sorry this oddity has made it difficult to work. 

I've been following your case as it progresses, and just saw that you were able to fix the issue by reinstalling Storyline 360. While that is great news, that behavior should never happen. If you come across this roadblock again, please do let us know!

Hi Molly, happy to help you sort this out!

First, what version of Storyline are you using? You can find this detail by going to Help >> About Storyline

I'd first suggest repairing Storyline. If that doesn't help, our Support Engineers can take a closer look at your file to nail down the problem. You can submit your file here, and they'll delete it when they're done troubleshooting.

Hi Tracey,

Thanks for reaching out and letting us know that you are running into a similar issue.

It looks like repairing the software install worked for Brian and we did not hear back from Naweed in his support case.

Do you know what version of Storyline you're using? We are currently on Build 3.26.18364.0 for Storyline 360. You can read all of the details here.

You can check by going to:
Help > About Articulate Storyline

The details for the software repair can be found here.

I am now having the same issue, characters are inserted cropped on the sides. I literally, just, updated Storyline this morning and now this bug is here. My IT department has to reinstall the software for us, so its not a good plan to do that just to attempt to fix a bug. Are there any developments on how to fix this issue so far? Thank you!
