Storyline 3 not honoring Resize browser to fill screen
Sep 12, 2017
It seems that Storyline 3 does not follow the Player | Other | Browser Settings as it did in Storyline 2:
I expected the browser window to maximize and then the player to fill the browser window. Instead, I saw the browser size to the course dimensions.
My first thought that it was a 16:9 ratio but 4:3 produced the same result. The browser window opens to accommodate the player but then it never re-sizes the window to fill the screen. It is possible for the end user to maximize the window but this wasn't necessary when publishing in Storyline 2.
Here is what I'm seeing:
Same results in Chrome - the course does not maximize the window.
I then checked the publish settings to see if this was an issue for both Chrome and Internet Explorer:
HTML5 - Does not work
HTML5 / Flash - Does not work
Flash / HTML5 - WORKS!
Flash - WORKS!
I'm not sure if this is a HTML5 issue or not but I wanted to pass along my findings if others encountered this as well. It seems that if the publishing preference is for Flash then the resizing of the window will be honored as expected.
