Text Autofit Improvements: Turn Off?

Jun 07, 2021

Hi all!

Does anyone know how to turn off the new Text Autofit Improvements that came with the most recent update? I have a project with hundreds of slides that now have the grey bar and I'm on a deadline. 

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

I just had the same problem.  I've never even had Storyline 360, so I don't know why this is happening.  I literally created this file yesterday with Storyline 3, tried to open it back up today on the same computer, and got this error message about text autofit.  Now what?  I need to finish working on this project!

Hi, everyone.

We just released the fix for the issue reported where project files wouldn't open after duplicating a text object.

I genuinely think this feature is absolutely brutal. I've wasted hours and hours trying get rid of these bars on several courses but sometimes it's almost impossible. 

Trying to find help on this is like a needle in a haystack. Little articles here and there which just seem to confuse things more, going through articles on here saying read this post, go to this thread and read this post. 

I've got a meeting in half an hour where I'm going to have to delay the launch of a project because having wasted hours failing to locate the needle in this haystack.

Gone are the days when Articulate used to produce a simple video detailing clearly what you need to do things.

If you're using 360, make sure it's updated, and then copy the whole project and past it into a new project; they rolled this back so that the autofit isn't the default anymore. The copy and paste part just clears the inhereted formatting from the current project and starts in a new project where autofit isn't the default.
