Next button hanging off screen after SL3 Update

Jun 24, 2021


This seems like a really silly question that should have a very obvious answer, but I cant seem to figure it out.

I recently updated an old Storyline 2 file to Storyline 3, and without making adjustments to my player template or story size, I noticed that the NEXT button is hanging off the screen in the SL3 version. Oddly enough, I only see this when I'm previewing the entire course, as well as in the published output:

When I preview a single slide, the next button seems to be in the right spot:

What is happening?! Ideally, I want the next button to be in the dark grey area of my player, not overlapping my content window. 

Any thoughts?

Hi, Bridgitte,

That is very weird behavior. Best guess is that the file got corrupted when it was updated. 

Try this: create a new SL3 file with the appropriate dimensions and player settings. Then import the slides from the possibly-corrupted SL3 file into the new SL3 file. 

If that works, problem solved. If it doesn't, I suggest you contact the Articulate staff directly. You can do that here:
