Remove space below title in player

Aug 26, 2014

I have a player that uses no logo or menu but has a title and three player tabs on the right. I'm wanting to remove the space below the title so that it lines up with the bottom of the tabs on the right. Right now it appears that the space for the tabs runs all the way over to and under the title as it it were a table. Is there any way to remove this extra space so we can gain the real estate for more height in the story area?

Hi Michael,

Unfortunately there isn't a way to remove that spacing, and the overall size of your course on the screen is impacted by player elements you add as detailed here:

The number of pixels added to the overall size depends on the elements you include in the player. For example:

  • The player frame by itself adds 20 pixels to the width and the height (10 pixels all the way around your course).
  • If any slide in your course has a Prev, Next, or Submit button, or if you've included the volume controller to your player, it adds an additional 51 pixels in height.
  • If you include the title in the top bar of your course—but no player tabs—it adds 23 pixels in height.
  • If you include a title in the top bar and at least one player tab, it adds 47 pixels in height.
  • If you don't include a title in the top bar but you do include player tabs, it adds 24 pixels in height.
  • If you include the sidebar in your player, it adds 240 pixels to the width.

Thanks Ashley. I thought so but thought maybe someone had a hack that could get me there.

And thanks for the other info. I've figured those out by experimentation, taking screenshots, and measuring. A wiki or some other resource would be great to have this kind of info as I've looked through thread after thread to get some of the particulars like these and it takes forever.
