How to wrap long resource tab item titles?

Aug 07, 2014

Hi Everyone,

Is there a way to wrap long resource tab item titles, just like we can wrap long menu tab item titles?

Thank you,

I do have a set of 10 questions under the Assessment section.  However, I am unable to group or club them under Assessments. The Menu displays Question 1, Question 2, Question 3 and so on... I am looking for an option wherein I could club the questions under Assessments. This could be avoided by disabling the Menu feature; however my client insists on including the Menu feature as well. Attached the screenshot for your reference.

Hey Antony!

Admittedly I'm a little confused as to what you're asking, and I want to make sure I understand fully.

I see that the questions are subheadings under the Assessment heading in your screenshot- clicking the arrow next to Assessments will show or hide them. Are you not wanting them to appear at all in the menu? 

If so, just select each slide title and click the Delete heading icon below the menu.

Scenes and slides you remove from the menu will still be part of your published course; they just won’t show in the menu.


If you're looking to make another heading under Assessments to store them in, you could add a new heading into your menu

I made a quick screen recording of this process for you over here. Take a Peek at it and let me know if either of these are what you're looking to do!

just have to indicate or advise participants to hover over each item under Resources until the tool tip shows the full title.

Ediana, how do we make the tooltip feature work (activate the feature) for Resources? I know how for the Menu but I do not know how for Resources. Your help would be appreciated as we have long Resources titles.

My issue with the Resources pop up is that it can get stuck on the slide. The only way I can find to get it unstuck is to hover over another title, if there is one, and quickly click outside of the Resources menu before that title gets stuck. I've submitted a feature request to wrap text for Resources. Maybe since the current setup is buggy, they will implement the wrap text feature soon!

Is there a date for getting the wrap text done for Resources? I can't get the tooltip to work.

My users are having problems navigating through.

For example, the advance and back buttons aren't super-responsive on a mobile phone - you need to swipe instead of click. But it's not intuitive. So I want to do a few cover shots teaching them how to navigate through Storyline. Not very nice to zoom into the Resources panel when it's stuck and shows a truncated title.

Hey there, Jacqueline!

Are you finding that the Show tooltip on hover option is not working in the HTML5 output? If that's right, this feature is not supported in HTML5 content at this time. I'll share this feedback with the team, though, and notify you if there's any change to how the resource and tooltip text function!

In the meantime, we'd love to have a closer look at your course for tailored approaches. If you're able to share the .story file, please use this private upload link!
