Display differences after powerpoint import

Oct 17, 2012

Dear all,

I encountered several changes on my slides after the import. Do you have a solution to fix it.

Hi Vincent and Welcome to the forums!

It looks to me like your PowerPoint and Storyline file dimensions are not the same.  

Standard (default) PowerPoint slide dimensions are 960 x 720.  Try setting your Storyline story size to match that and re-import.

To change story size, click on the "Design" tab, then click the "Story Size" button on the far left.

Hope that helps!

Hi Jill,

I modified the size in Storyline and the result is much better. In the meantime I double checked my pwt and the dimensions are the one you told me.

So, it solved the dimensions problem but some display differences remains (graphics at the wrong place or different from the original design, alignment,...).

Hey Vincent, 

Importing PowerPoint content into Storyline is not an exact one-to-one conversion. As a result, text, graphics, and other elements may look a bit different. And although most features in PowerPoint and Articulate Presenter are supported in Storyline, some are not. This article has more details, but if you'd like us to take a closer look at your file to make sure there's not something else going on, we'd be happy to. You can submit a case, including your .story file, using the link below so our support team can assist you further:
