Different Story Size for Different Scenes

Hi all,

I have screen recordings that are the size of a cellphone screen in portait mode. However, my course needs to be designed in landscape mode. Is there anyway to adjust the screensize for specific slides or scenes?

If not, has anyone found a work around?

Hi Adam!

Thanks for checking in on this feature request! We don't have a feature in Storyline 360 where you can have a different Story Sizes in the same project. We are continuing to track customer impact, so I'm going to add your comments to our feature report. 

I'll report back to this discussion when I have an update!

I´m just here to mention that I am needing to set a custom size for different slides within a Story. 

I am making a big menu and inside, every section has a different amount of information to share with the user. Some sections has lots of information and some are just a video or image. 

It will be nice to be able to set custom sizes for each slide as this way I won´t have to split the content into several different slides. Please add this feature in the future :-)

I would like to be able to have the option to change the dimensions of each scene in a Storyline project.  My immediate use would be to incorporate a PDF that was converted to PTT.  The PDF is 8.5x11 and it converts just fine to a PowerPoint project but when I import the PPT into our Storyline project it is not formatted correctly because the Storyline project is 16x9.  

On that note...Is there a way to open a PDF in its own window within a storyline project?

Is there a way to open a PDF in its own window within a storyline project?

You can add a link to it as a web object and choose to open it in a new window or in the Storyline slide. Here's some additional information
