Overlap issue in triggers panel

Hi all

I've been having a recurring issue with the triggers panel since updating Storyline 360 to version 3.27.18822.0. It seems to be reducing the space given to each trigger to a single line, causing a mess of overlapping text.

Trigger panel issue

This can be remedied by shutting and re-opening the slide or - sometimes, not always - by opening and closing the variables panel. However it's happening so frequently that these workarounds are time consuming.

One of my colleagues is having this issue, but I couldn't find an existing thread discussing this so I'm not sure how widespread it is. Is anybody else having this issue?

Hi Ronnie

I'm having the same issue.  I updated to this version (Build 3.27.18822.0) over a week ago and everything was fine until today - I'm suspecting a Windows update has made a change to a setting 

This is the latest Windows update and it may have something to do with this

The issue you're reporting has been occurring since the March release of SL360.  I've seen it as well and always attributed it to a screen refresh / memory issue.  Another suggestion that I've seen in the forums is docking / undocking the triggers panel.

Others have reported that previewing projects in the recent update is slow, too.  This was happening prior to the most recent updates in Windows.  Thankfully all who have reported this problem are not seeing it in their published files. :)

Hi Ronnie,

I was able to replicate this as well and my workaround to bring back the normal looking triggers panel is to switch from Story View to Form View and switch back to Story View again. 

However, I encourage you to raise a support case for this particular issue to bring this to the attention of the support engineers. Submit a support case here.

Hi Ronnie,

I'm glad that Wendy reached back out. We are seeing a few reports of the preview being slow and/or choppy in the latest update.

I'll attach this conversation to the report as we track user impact and so that we can share any updates with you here.

If you need to revert to the previous update, check out the instructions here.

To update, head over to your Articulate 360 desktop app. You will see an "update" button near Storyline 360. Press that, and you will good to go.
