Misaligned shapes

Jul 30, 2013

Hi All,

In order to highlight sections of a form I've used zoom regions then dimmed out the irrelevant items using semi transparent shapes, but aligning these is proving difficult as the edit mode does not match preview mode:

This is the edit mode view of two semi transparent boxes lined up to form one continuous shape, Storyview is set to 100%.

This is the same section but in preview mode. The two boxes are no longer accurately aligned and there is visible white space between them.

Trial and error alignment is proving to be quite time consuming.

Is there any reason why this may be occurring?

Hey John,

Thank you for reaching out and letting us know! 

Since this thread is a bit older, I was hoping to start fresh to make sure I am on the same page. To clarify, are your shapes not matching when editing/previewing/publishing your course? Also, you mention that videos are also being misaligned as well? 

With your permission, would it be okay if you could share your .story file to this thread? If you prefer to send them privately, please feel free to connect with our Support Engineers here. We'll let you know our findings and will delete it after having a closer look.

Hello David!

I'm happy to look into this with you. I see how there are four rectangles with text. Is the border added to all of the rectangles, or did you add an additional shape behind the rectangles with the text?

I'd like to try and recreate this on my end. Do you mind sharing your .story file in this discussion or privately in a support case?
