Maximized Storyline application exceeds the size of my monitor
Feb 15, 2013
I use a dual-monitor system while I work. Screen 1 is my laptop's monitor (on which I keep applications like Outlook running so I can keep an eye on my email or other applications that I'm using to create content for Storyline such as Word and PowerPoint). I keep my laptop on the right side of the main work monitor, but it is Monitor 1 in my setup.
I use my main monitor, a 21-inch Dell LCD display (set up as Monitor 2) for working on my Storyline stuff. However, when I drag Storyline over to that screen and maximize it, Storyline expands to a size that's larger than the size of my monitor (actually, all my Articulate applications do this except Presenter - and I presume that Presenter behaves properly because it's an add-in to PowerPoint, and PowerPoint plays nicely with my display).
Anyhow, my main monitor, the 21-inch display, is set at the Windows-recommend resolution of 1680 x 1050, and yet it looks like about 200 pixels worth of screen content spills over onto Monitor 1 in my system.
It's not a big deal, but it is kind of a pain in the butt to have to manually size my Articulate applications to the correct display size every time I open them.
