Editing States, text, in Master


i want to create a menü within my slides. Therefore i've inserted textfields into my slide master. now i want to add a hover and a selected state (if the user hovers over the menü text, or selects it.

for my Problem, I'm just gonna go with the states "normal" and "selected".

first of all, i have trouble changing the text size in general, i can not change it to 12, it'll always go back to 12,5.:

second probmlem is, that the text size is much smaller in the selected state.

I can't figure out how this works.

In the end i want:

Normal state: text, color X, size 12

Hover state: same text, different color y, same size 12, same position as nomal

selected state: same text, same color as hover color y, same size 12, same position as nomal and hover

Now it looks like:

Thanks fpr your Helf!

Hi Wolfhard,

Are you able to share this .story file here with us? If you'd prefer to share it privately you can always send it to our Support team.  Seeing the changes within pictures leads me to believe there is something happening in this specific file, have you tried the same in a new Storyline file?

Hi Bengt,

I don't see where Wolfhard shared this file with us. Based on the initial images and Wolfhard's description it may have been file specific, so you could start with an import of your existing project into a new Storyline project.  Also if you'd like to share the file here with us we're happy to take a look and if you'd prefer to share privately I can send you directions to send to me directly.
