New accessible text option ruins (adds extra space to) bullet formatting

Dec 28, 2020

Hi -- any way to keep the accessible text option from destroying bullet formatting? Here's an approximation of what's happening:

  • SVG bullets when published look like this. Notice the lovely hanging indent. Here is some more text so it wraps around.
  •           With the accessible text option on, there's weird "extra space" at the beginning of the first line of the bullet. Notice the messed-up hanging indent.

Hi Karin!

I'm happy to help! Unfortunately, I'm not able to recreate this issue. I've created a project with a slide that has three bullet points. Here's the Review Link.

Would you mind sharing your project with us so we can see the snag in action? You can either attach it to this discussion using the Add Attachment button or send it to our team privately using this secure upload link.

I've not experienced bullets having that much space but turning on accessible text can cause undesirable effects. Do not just switch on the accessible feature and expect everything to work. Many text items turn into scrolling text boxes even though they contain limited numbers of characters e.g. a circle with numbered text inside. I've gone through a number of courses and adjusted the margins and widths to fix. Some text spacing changes meaning it no longer aligns with graphical objects or other text items.

Hi Hugh,

It sounds like you've run into a few unexpected changes and adjusted your courses. If you have one of the original files and/or the steps to easily replicate, we'd be happy to take a look.

With your permission, I'd like you to share your project file with our support engineers to investigate what's happening. You can share it privately by uploading it here. It will be deleted when troubleshooting is complete.
