Hi- I was wondering if anyone has run into an issue with importing an HD 16:9 powerpoint presentation into Storyline 360?  I have tried this numerous times, 

1) just importing directly-cut off artwork at the bottom of the slide

2) starting a new project and changing the SL 360 to 16:9 first, then importing the pptx

3) the only way I was able to fix this was to go into the slide size settings in the pptx file, chose custom settings, select On-screen 16:9 (see attachment), and then open a new SL 360 project and import.  then the artwork is not cut off.   

what is the difference between the On-screen 16:9 vs 16:9?

Hi Rhonda,

It looks like Powerpoint's Widescreen setting has the same aspect ratio of On-Screen show, but the overall dimensions of the Widescreen slide are larger. 

Widescreen 16:9

On-screen Show 16:9

This inch to pixel converter is a handy tool that will help you choose the precise slide size in Storyline. 

For example, if the slide size in PowerPoint is 10 inches x 5.625 inches, that converts to 960 pixels x 540 pixels in Storyline.
