Font-Size difficulties in Storyline 3

Dear E-Learning Heroes,

I recently produced different (but very similar) storys with Storyline 3 and had to see, that the same buttons I created looked slightly different in the two storys. The parameters were all the same: story-size, zoom, font and font size. Finally I copied the buttons from one story into the other. I have attached the result. Can you help me solve the problem?

And there is also another issue: The points above the german "Umlaute" are displaced in the preview, although the Storyline version is switched to german. I also attached a picture. I hope you can help me with that too.

 

Thanks for your support,

 

Jan

Hi Jan,

If you haven't yet, please try to copy and paste using the option Keep Source Formatting as outlined in this link and let's see if it will solve the problem.

As for your 2nd issue, I have 2 things for you to try:

1. Are you working from a local or a network drive?  Articulate Storyline works better when you are working from a local drive. See Storyline: Create, Edit, and Publish Courses on Your Local Hard Drive

2. It may also be a  DPI problem, depending on your operating system, you can adjust the settings as instructed on this link:  articulate-storyline-dpi-support-sl2

(This indicates Storyline 2, but the steps in changing Windows DPI settings remains the same.)

I hope this helps!

Hello Hazel and Phil,

thank you for your recommendations, unfortunately they didn´t work.

What format settings do you want to know, Phil? The font is Cambria, the fontsize 16, the story size is set to 1024 to 576, the zoom is at 110%. I don´t know if the text is set to shrink to fit, I thought the fontsize is the scale?

If I use the option "Keep Source Formatting" the fontsize is shown as 1600 (!), although it is only slightly larger than the other button with fontsize 16. If I set the fontsize "back" to 16 afterwards it still differs from the other fontsize 16.

The thing is we are 4 persons working on different stories that shall finally be merged. We used the same template but it looks like storyline 3 is producing different outputs...so it seems that I will have to edit every slide (and every button) by hand :|.

For the 2nd issue: The DPI settings are at 100% and it makes no difference if I edit and publish from my local HD or a network drive. The points are still displaced.

We cannot afford Storyline 360, it is a little out of our financial range.
