How to stop images / text boxes from shifting

Aug 05, 2013

I am having a very frustrating problem - I place an image on a slide - say, a screenshot.  I come back to it later, and it has moved to a new location on the slide - not a lot, but enough to make a big difference.  I also have the same problems with text boxes - the borders on them will get really big all of a sudden, and everything on the slide is out of whack.  Sometimes the font becomes smaller - I just don't get it.

This is really frustrating, because there is no rhyme or reason to it - sometimes it happens, and sometimes it doesn't - but most of the time it happens.  What am I missing to cause these problems?

Hi Tom,

Have you tried importing this file into a new Storyline file? That can sometimes solve whatever issue is causing your Storyline file to behave unexpectedly. Additionally, you could also conduct a repair of your Storyline, and if that doesn't solve the issue you may also need to uninstall/reinstall the supporting Windows software

If these troubleshooting steps don't solve the problem, please share your .story file here or send it to us privately by submitting a Support case so that our team can take a look.
