March 21 release of Storyline is changing the way webojects size on the stage

I thought I posted this early but now I do not see it. Attached are screenshots of the same web object, one published using the April 26th update (webobject broken.jpg) and the other with March 21 version of Storyline (webobject working.jpg. Basically it is no longer responding to the browser size changing. I had to revert to April 26th release to get it sizing properly again.

Hi Curtis,

Our team is looking into a similar issue with web object, where they're not sized correctly or you can't scroll through them. In our testing so far it is limited to viewing in Chrome and when the player is set to "Scale player to fill browser". The scrolling issue is even more evident when the browser in maximized or set to full-screen.

Does that match your experience? If you're able to share a copy of the .story file here with us I can share that with the team as a part of the report! If you're running into something else, we'd also love to take a look and nail the issue down further.

For either option, you can upload at this link using the Add Attachment button or you always have an option to share privately with our Support Engineers. Either way, we'll delete it when done testing.

I just posted the same problem on this discussion: https://community.articulate.com/discussions/articulate-storyline/scaling-and-web-objects

The webobjects used to scale with the browser prior to version 3.26. But starting with version 3.26 in April webobjects no longer scale, and now get scrollbars when the browser is too small.

I created a very simple test to illustrate the problem, and am providing the source files.

Compare the same storyfile here published with versions 3.25 and 3.32 (and resize your browser to see the difference)

Storyline 3.25 HTML5 Output  (the old scaling way):

Storyline 3.32 HTML5 Output (new non-scaling and with scrollbars):
http://www.crssec.com/client/abw123/SL_version3.32%20-%20webobjtest4%20-%20Storyline%20output/story_html5.html

Note that I tried Modern and Classic (with scaling) players and the results are the same.

Hi all!

Good news! We just released Update 34 (Build 3.34.20804.0) for Storyline 360! 

In the update, you'll find that Web Objects are no longer misaligned and sized incorrectly in the published output using the Modern Player!

All you need to do is update Storyline 360 on your Articulate 360 Desktop app!

Head over here to see all the other fixes included in this update.
