Storyline 2 Ignoring "Lock Aspect Ratio" from Master Slides
As we have been developing a slide master template for our team to use, we have come across something that renders our slide master slides somewhat useless: even when we check for a content place holder to lock it's aspect ratio in the master slide, for when a picture is inserted once a designer selects a certain slide layout to use in an actual scene, the pictures do not conform to the aspect ratio "locked" by the master slide.
For example, if I have a content place holder sized at 200 x 200 in the slide master, a picture with an original size of 1280 x 720 should resize to fill the 200 x 200 box, with the "lock aspect ratio" option being checked in the master slide. However, that same image, once inserted in the content place holder box, resizes down to 200 x 113. Obviously, in this example, height is not being retained. In fact, when I select the layout I want to use from the "insert new slide" box, right click on this same picture place holder, and go to "Size and Position...," the "lock aspect ratio" box is unchecked (even though it is 100% checked in the master slide).
I should mention that this functionality works if we insert a picture into the same pre-sized content box within slide master view, but it does not work once we actually insert a new slide with the same layout in the scene we are working inside of (outside of the slide master view). To reference my example above, if I insert that same 1280 x 720 image into the 200 x 200 content place holder box while in Master View, the box aspect ratio does not change. The picture inserts, distorted mind you, and I can open the properties up and mess with the "offset" options to make the picture look good.
Are we missing a setting or is this a bug?
Thank you in advance!
