Storyline courses appear different on different laptops. Help!

Hi there,

My colleagues and I work on a range of modules saved on a central server. When we go in to each other's modules to make amends etc, sometimes the formatting goes crazy (text going across the screen etc) and fonts can appear larger/smaller even though we have the same font installed and pretty much the same laptops.

This is also the case with multiple-choice questions as the states will jump around depending on who has opened it.

Are you able to help or provide any guidance as it is driving us crazy!

Hi Kirsty,

First, I just want to say that Alex made a great suggestion. You'll want to make sure that each machine modifying your content has the correct settings for DPI. This will not impact end users. 

Second, I noticed you mentioned that you're all working with projects from a "central server". Sounds like you're not working locally and this may be the problem. 

f you view a published Storyline presentation on your local hard drive or send it to someone else to view on their local hard drive, you'll encounter security restrictions from the computer, web browser, Flash Player, and network that'll cause various features of your content to fail.

To properly test your published content and share it with others, upload it to the environment for which it was published. Please review the article below for more information:

Publishing and Sharing Articulate Storyline Content

Now, just a note - you can modify your content and then place it back on your storage server if need be. Storing it there is fine, just don't modify the content while it's not on your hard drive.

Let us know if this helps.
