Storyline 3 Glitch! Please help, zooming into text field

Oct 15, 2018


Basically if i zoom into a layer (lets take the hint caption layer for an example) as i zoom into it the hint caption will move rather than zoom in.

(this is whilst editing, i am NOT talking about zoom regions, just ctrl+scroll wheel to fine tune placement of pictures and shapes etc.)

before zoom: (note it's position)

After Zoom:

When i move horizontal scroll bar whilst zoomed in the caption will move left and right.

Please help as it makes it impossible to fine tune anything, this ONLY occurs on slides that have a TEXT field input (from a screen recording)


I have uploaded a file that re-creates the problem quickly, if you download it and goto the second slide (where it asks you to click hello), click on the hint caption layer then zoom in with (CTRL+scrollwheel) and notice it will get bigger but it will also move, it doesnt show where it's really pointing. Then try moving the horizontal scroll wheel.

For clarity: The Background (the recorded screen) will be static, as the hint caption slides around. Thus the locations of the hint caption is no longer accurate, so if i resize or moved it, as i zoom out it moves again undoing basically what i have done.

Any idea on how to fix this? Does this only happen to me?


Thank you
