Elements overlapping player


I'm having trouble with some of my design elements that are close to the bottom of the screen. When I'm designing, all elements are shown to be fully on the slide, nothing is overlapping off of it. However, when I preview and publish my program, many of the elements overlap onto the grey outline of the player, as you can see below. I've tried to move them away from the bottom edge so this does not happen, yet it still does. Any answer as to why this is occuring? I have been working on this project for awhile, and earlier in the week this wasn't happening, so I'm quite confused why it is now. It seems to have started out of the blue.

Thanks for your help!

Hey Katie!

Can you check to make sure your system's DPI is set to 96? Storyline will function as expected when Windows is set to 96 DPI (dots per inch).

Storyline doesn't currently support 120 DPI. If your system is set to 120 DPI, you may experience erratic behavior, such as:

*  Elements of the application are misplaced or distorted.

*  Objects are misplaced or distorted when previewed or published.

*  Zoomed images don't work as expected.

*  Font sizes are incorrect after using the translation features.

Here's how you can switch to 96 DPI:
