font size of closed captions (SL360)

Jun 15, 2017


is there a way to increase the font size of closed captions? The import went well, the timing is perfect and the position of closed captions box works just fine, but the font size seems pretty small. Changing or creating theme font doesn't effect the closed captions. So... I am stuck (for the moment)

Hi Matthew, thanks so much for sharing your workaround! I've used it on a past project and it worked great! However, my current project is using the new 'Modern' player in Storyline 360 and the workaround no longer seems to work with this player. The Modern player only runs in HTML5, and I notice there is no longer a story_html.html file in the output. Would I need to do something different to get your workaround to work with the new player?
