Disconnect between Design View and Preview View

Nov 10, 2022

Guys, it is incredibly frustrating that this issue is still so persistent in Storyline. There should be no reason why the design view should look different from the preview, especially when it only comes to the positioning of the text.

I think the layers is an annoying aspect, but at least, that's understandable. Why is the text positioning subtly different between the two? It's so annoying.

Hello Edward, 

Sorry to hear that you're encountering issues with your project when previewing it. 

Would you be willing to share a copy of your project file here or in private by opening a case with our support team so we can take a closer look at the text positioning issue you're experiencing? We'll delete it when we're done testing!

Sorry, confidential company content. It's just kind of ridiculous that I'm having issues with such an unnecessary element that adds more time to development. Now, I'm experiencing the same disconnect when I'm altering positioning of objects within an object's state, and it doesn't save the change when I place it into another larger object's state. Simple things that are having issues/glitches...
