Mulitple Slide Sizes in One Course


I'm building a course that will act as a case study.  The content would be presented in standard 4:3 ratio.   Part of the problem that I am trying to overcome is a way for a learner to submit their response to the case study.  I have text entry boxes that the learner uses to answer questions, I then have their responses pulled to another slide.

I'd like that slide that hold the content to be in a ratio closer to a standard letter size 8.5 inches by 11 inches so that the learner can print and submit that document to the instructor.

If anyone has other ideas as to how I can implement such a process I am open to those suggestions, currently this seems like the best solution to the problem I have reached.

Thank you everyone!

Hi Jose, 

There isn't a way to have multiple story sizes in one course, but if you have a lot of text that you'd like to display on one screen you may want to look at using a scrolling panel. 

Hi Ashley,

Its more that I was using a JavaScript function so that the learner could print their responses.  When you do that thought it stretches the slide to fit the page and everything looks wacky.

Is there a way through a variable that content they provide is taken and maybe placed into an email?  I'm trying to end the end almost treat their responses to questions like a form that is submitted for review.

Hi Jose,

Storyline doesn't include an email results functionality,   but you may want to look into some of the Javascript best practices in this article. For example there is a:

Save Storyline variables to a text file
[video demonstration here]

var fso = new ActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject");
var s = fso.OpenTextFile("C:\\Test.txt", 8, true, 0);
var name = player.GetVar("TextEntry");
var email = player.GetVar("TextEntry1");
s.WriteLine("Email: " + email);
s.WriteLine("Name: " + name);
