Different bullet spacing on different computers?
Oct 06, 2014
Has anyone seen an issue where bullets are spaced differently on different computers? As a test, I created a textbox and filled in in with bulleted text. I had a coworker open the same file and take a screenshot to compare. In their screenshot there is less space between each bullet. The more bullets you have the worse it gets. This is an issue because we have several people working on the same files and text is aligned to other elements. Both computers are using the SAME version of Storyline, both have the file copied locally to their machines. The screen resolution and text rendering settings are the same. Line Spacing is set to 1.0 on both tests.
It should be noted that the same test was done in PPT and the issue was not present. It only seems to happen on unordered bullet lists, not numbered ordered lists or text without bullets.
Here is the screenshot side-by-side comparison. I added numbers to illustrate how they eventually separate. Each bullet adds an extra pixel per line.
Here is the same screenshot overlapping to illustrate that it adds a pixel per bullet.
