Optimal story size for mobile

Mar 02, 2020

Hi community!

I have built a course in Storyline 3. When previewing the course in 'phone landscape' it throws the formatting out to the point where the course doesn't function properly because some of the buttons behind shapes and images etc. When previewing in all of the other devices and orientations it seems to be fine.

The story size is currently 960 by 540. Is this the issue and if so what is the optimal story size for mobile?

Happy to share my .SL file if it helps...

Hi Tom!

I'm interested to hear what other community members use for their Story Size when viewing the course in Landscape Mode on a mobile device. I prefer to stick with the default story size 720x540 but that is going to depend on the amount of content on each slide.

I've tested out a few Story Sizes that might help you out:

Here's what your course probably looks like using 960x540.

Hi Tom,

Happy to share an update with you!

We just released the newest version of Storyline 360, (Build 3.39.21985.0) this morning. This update fixes the issue where the slide is obstructed by Player features if the Slide dimension is set for Widescreen (16:9) on a mobile device. You can find more details on this update here:

The next step is to update Storyline 360 by heading to your Articulate 360 desktop app and clicking "Update" next to Storyline 360.

As always, we are happy to answer any questions you have!
