Graphics move apart when Previewing slide

Mar 25, 2014

I'm hoping that it's an easy question to answer and I'm missing something obvious but I am having a problem with imported graphics an elearning course I am making in Storyline. I have created a few slides with graphics created in Illustrator. These have been copied and pasted into this course for use in a variety of interactions. I'm am trying to make a 4 button graphic of an interconnecting puzzle piece for a slide and the idea is when each of the sections is clicked it will reveal a popup of some text.

So far so good, but having arranged the 4 graphics exactly as I wished when previewing the slide they all jump apart from each other, therefore ruining the graphic. This has happened with several graphics where there is more than one component and I'm hoping that someone can point me in the right direction, as if I can't get this to work it's back to the drawing board, as it were.

I've attached a rough storyline slide example of what happens; try Previewing it!

Thanks in advance,

Hi RM and welcome to Heroes! 

This looks like an issue that has been reported to our QA team where the images are misaligned in preview or publishing. I'll add this thread to the report with our QA team so that they can take a look at your file too. In the meantime, if you'd like to create this as one image within Illustrator you could then put hotspot over the different puzzle pieces to all the user to click on sections of them to show content.

Hi Ashley,

Thank you for your reply. The other thing I've noticed is that it's changed the size of one of the pieces, but with other ones I've done it changes the shape too e.g. stretches some slightly.

I had hoped that I could have each piece change state when hovered/selected but while I know I can have 4 states with the overall picture I might wait to see if a fix can be found before making it too complicated just yet.

Thank you for your help!
