Image jumps from slide to slide when zoomed in

Nov 19, 2013


I have noticed that if slide A and B have the same picture in the same place, and I zoom in on it halfway through slide A, then continue the zoom through slide B, it looks like the image jumps.   This is because the 'same' zoom is not actually the same on a slide where the zoom changes as it is on a slide where the zoom is consistent throughout.  I know I have the zoom itself matched, because if I make the first slide begin all the way zoomed in, there is no jump in the image. Is there a way to fix this issue?

Hi Eva and welcome to Heroes! 

I tested this, and can't determine why there is a small jump in the image, but I see the behavior your describing although on my image it's very slight. If your image is a bit more detailed, it may help if you're able to share your .story file with us here so that I can take a closer look and share with our QA team if necessary. If you'd prefer to share privately you can also send it here.

I can't really post the file I am working on here, but since you can see the jump on your image, that should not be an issue.  The jump really is very small, and it isn't ruining the presentation as a whole, but I am trying to create the illusion that one slide is a continuation of the other. (The slides are similar, but there are multiple mouse movements, so actually combining the slides won't work.)

Hi Eva,

If you are unable to send it to here in the forums you can also share it privately on the second page of this link. The reason I'd ask for your particular file is the image I zoomed in, wasn't particularly detailed so it was hard to clearly see the movement and it didn't include any mouse movements either. Taking a look at how yours is set up may allow us to better understand what is happening and either offer a workaround or report it to our QA team. If you're unable to share, I'll mock up a file using the set up you've shared and send that along to our team.
