Storyline Player colors

I would like to have the Storyline base frame (Main Border and Main Background) to be blank white in my presentation so that the Previous and Next buttons appear to "float" on the white background (the buttons will not appear on every slide). However, when I change the colors to blank white and try to preview, I still see a faint gray border around the slides.  Does anyone have any tips for me on how to make the player colors (with the exception of the buttons and border text) appear blank white? I've attached my (very messy) prototype as an example. The colors appear white in the player settings, but I can still see a faint gray border in Preview mode.

Hi Leigh,

Your Master Slide is juuuuuust slightly off white (#fbfbfb)

Go to your Master Slide, click Background Styles > Format Background, then click Color and you will notice it is not white (#ffffff). If you change this to white you should be all set. If you still see it, make sure you adjusted the correct master slide.

Hope that helps!

Hi David, thanks for your response! I think my issue is with the player itself rather than the slide masters. Even though I have adjusted the Main Border and Main Background to white, I still see a wide light gray border when in preview mode (see attached - this is my first slide in Preview Mode).

Hi Leigh,

I double checked and ensured that all the colors were set to white (a few of them were grey still) and uploaded here to my Articulate Online account where it looks normal. I see that our team is aware that in Preview the grey background still appears.  So in the meantime, you'll want to ensure all the colors are set and then publish it should be good to go.
