Slide background color changes when published in Storyline.

Sep 30, 2014

I have a Storyline project with mixed backgound colors. Some slides have the default white background; others, a light blue background. When I preview a slide, a scene, or the entire project, the background of each slide displays the intended colors. Yet, when I publish the project, all pages have the light blue background. Can someone tell me what setting I may have inadvertently changed? I did not have this issue before I added some background color to some of the slides.

I am having the same issue with a course I am publishing. It previews with a white background but when I publish the course and upload it to the LMS, it had a grey background.  It is just a single slide in the course so it's not critical but annoying nonetheless.  I would be interested in finding a fix.

Hey Stephanie,

I'd check the transparency setting on the slide background for the slide you are experiencing the issue on. This could certainly be the cause and explain the difference between slides.

Let me know if that's it.
