Removing border from story

After extensive research I thought I would post here. I am trying to completely remove any sort or border from my story when I publish. I have seen numerous tutorials or removing all the player features, but none of them showed a published story. Inside Storyline, I am able to remove everything I need to remove. Upon publishing, the exported .swf has a 10 pixel border around it. The story.html file has also added these dimensions where it calls the .swf. 

The way the LMS we work with functions, is to display the entire .swf. If this is not the correct size it will scale the .swf. Obviously this is causing issues. 

Please tell me there is a way to remove this border? In the attached image the header and footer banners should be at the edges.

Thanks, Ryan

Hi Ryan,

Have you seen the information here on making a chromeless player?  Also, if you've included any player element for any slide, that spacing is left across all slides - and the player size elements are determined as described here.  You may also want to test if the extra padding is attributed to the LMS by testing at a site such as SCORM Cloud which is an industry standard for testing LMS content - additionally you could publish for web and place within one of the options mentioned in this article.

Hi Amy

do you mean you are still seeing the border? If you are only previewing this will happen but once published should not be visible if you have followed all the steps to make a transparent player.

After playing with different player features, somewhere along the line, my background photo is no longer filling the space. From Normal/slide view, the image fills all the space. I can't see a way to get rid of the white lines at the top and bottom.

I used  a custom story size, but haven't changed that--although I would like to know how to set the size so that the slide space matches the dimensions of the photo.

What could be causing the white space? 

Thanks.

In the process of deleting all the slides but one, the remaining slide was fine (although the border was so small, it couldn't have been Next and Back buttons). Problem solved--for now at least. However, in another file, the dividers are still showing, even though they're set to 100% transparency.

Hi, Did the product development team make any progress on reducing player border size? If not is there a method of reducing the 10 pixels by js or amending the html file - i had a quick look myself and nothing i do seems to make any difference.

Seems a bit strange to have a border at all when so many people are now using transparent borders etc.
