horizontal line in menu

Jul 21, 2015

Hi Dears,

I am having trouble with a menu build in Articulate Storyline. There is a horizontal line appearing below one of my indented menu items. When I look into the menu options (via Home | Player | Menu) there seems to be no possibility to hide this line.

Is there any way to not show this line? The only reason for the indent is that this slide is optional, there is no "break" in the content which needs to be visible.

Attached is a screenshot so you can see what I mean. Thanks in advance for your help,

Hi, Nina -- Thank you for your question. Would you be able to share your .story file here so we can take a closer look for you? And also, you may want to take a look at this thread regarding Storyline Player Colors, as you could possibly adjust the background to be the same color as the line, thereby making it appear 'invisible', if that makes sense.

Hi Christie,

I would prefer not to share the .story file because the content is confidential. So I am not allowed to publish it outside of our company network. That's also why the screenshot was cropped so much.
To change the line or background colour would of course be possible, but then I have a funny too big gap between the menu items. That's why I'm asking if the line can be suppressed completely.

Thanks again and kind regards,

Hi, Nina -- Thanks for the update. I think it would be beneficial for our Support Staff to take a closer look at your file to see where the line in question is coming from to begin with (since changing the background color does not sound like the solution you would prefer). All of your file will remain confidential and our Support Engineers can sign an NDA if necessary. Please use this form to submit your case for further exploration.

Hi Christie,

the case is solved. Or better: It cannot be solved because there is no way to get rid of the line.
But for other users who might stumble across this post and wonder what the solution was:

I formatted the line and the background both in the same colour. It goes like this (Thanks to Jonathan from the support for the description of the steps):

1) In Storyline 1, click Player

2) Click Colors & Effects

3) Click Show advanced color editing

4) Click listitems >> lines

5) Change the color of the line to the color of the background. I used white.

6) Click OK
