Full screen on mobile devices - Very frustrated
May 24, 2018
I have been attempting to get courses published in AS360 to go full screen on mobile devices and have become extremely frustrated that such a seemingly simple function has been so difficult to achieve with this product. I have scoured this community for information, and while some of that has helped I still haven't found a silver bullet solution (which seems like all it would take would be for Articulate to add a 'full screen toggle' element we could put on slides).
To be clear, I am not talking about a responsive design, or getting a course to "fill" a page. I understand the player options. I am talking about a true "full screen" toggle on mobile devices. Think the little rectangle on a YouTube video in the bottom right. Full screen means the whole screen - no browser chrome, address bar or anything but the course content.
I thought I had found a solution on this thread: https://community.articulate.com/discussions/articulate-storyline/storyline-toggle-fullscreen-mode-in-web-browser#reply-522362
I have been able to get the JS working on Android devices but not on any iOS devices using any browser.
My understanding is that the responsive player should automatically go full screen on mobile devices, but this hasn't been my experience, ever. Even publishing a blank course to the web will not cause mobile devices to switch to full screen when viewing. Either this feature isn't working correctly or I'm missing something.
I hope I don't get rebuffed here because this has to do with JS - I would much rather not use JS, but Storyline 360 still seems to have no way to force fullscreen on mobile devices, which seems really crazy considering how important real estate is on said devices.
