Thanks for discussing exactly this feature I was just looking for. However, I seem to be too stupid, to realize it myself :-(, even though I followed the help clips. 

I add the slide so you can see, that - after groping - when I trie to rotate the text back so it's horizontal, the whole text boox gets messed up and the scroll bar is much too short and does not show the whole text. 

Any idea, what I'm doing wrong? I work with 360.

Thanks in advance for any hint and have a great weekend you all

Stumbled overt this thread while searching for an answer to Q: "how to create horizontal scroll Panels" and was first happy as the concept seems very locigal. Yet, after trying it myself, I somehow cannot get my horizontal scroll bar to work.

As should be seen in the attachment, the text field I want to show in the horizontal scroll Panel goes crazy, after turning back the text field 90°. I selected "do not autofit" but the text box jumps somewhere in the middle of the Panel. When I align it manually, the scroll Panel disappears.

Any idea, what I could be making wrong? thx in advance and best regards

Thank you for all of info shares in this thread! I assumed the scrolling panel let you choose to pick the direction to scroll. I have a system screen that scrolls left to right that I am simulating in a lesson that wouldn't work with out this thread. I may have panicked a bit until I found this thread.

I am not able to get it to line up 100%, but for this moment I am going to call it good enough and come back with fresh eyes tomorrow. Hopefully I can get it to perfectly line up so it doesn't drive me crazy!

Hey T.J.!

Thanks for reaching out and letting us know what you would like to see. I appreciate you sharing how this would work well for you and for suggesting the simple idea of rotation.

I've submitted this feature request on your behalf.

I wanted to share some information about how we manage these feature requests as that may be helpful.

Horizontal scrolling, in my opinion, seems such a simple feature that I cannot believe it is not already in the software!!! The workaround is ok for a single object - albeit very clunky and frustrating in terms of exact positioning - but I want to have multiple images in a horizontal scroll box - it is almost impossible to achieve. Does anyone else have any suggestions? Thanks in advance, Pete

Hi Pete and welcome to E-Learning Heroes :)

I appreciate you sharing what you would like to see included in the software and I've submitted a feature request on your behalf.

I wanted to share some information about how we manage these feature requests as that may be helpful.

In the meantime, I look forward to seeing the design ideas from others in the community and the material here may be a good starting point.

I'm not positive, but it seems like this workaround no longer works.  Perhaps an update changed that?  Now, when selecting my group, I only have the option to rotate if I have the rectangle sub-selected within the group.  And, when rotating that rectangle, it automatically pops into the scroll panel when it hits a certain angle.

Here's another +1 to horizontal scrolling.

I have found exactly same issue. Using a tutorial listed on here, and rotating the image, then make a scroll panel, add the image, draw a rectangle around all, group, then rotate back. When I rotate the back the external rectangle interferes with the sizing, and ends up in the scroll panel. I have a large full page screen I am trying to show, clearly.  Had anyone come up with a new method in Storyline 360?  I have given up trying to make this work, too much time on one timey piece of a large puzzle.
