The Story is in German. It shows a steam boiler system. Press Start (3 times) to proceed. With + and - you can add or distract 1000 kW power. The Text mentioned is on the base layer.

As a work around I may separate the Text and the references in to forms.

Hi Heinz,

Thanks for sharing your file! I published it to Review 360 on Storyline 360 Update 48 and didn't notice any strange behavior with the text boxes on the base layer.

  • Can you share how you're publishing your course?
  • Are you viewing it locally or in the intended environment?

Looking forward to hearing back!

I've published the course to SCORM Cloud for testing, Heinz.

Following the steps you shared above with pushing Start 3x and then using the + and - signs, I am still unable to see an issue different than when I preview your course.

Here is my published output.

  • Are you seeing the same issue you initially mentioned?
  • If so, please provide the steps to replicate.

Hello Heinz!

I appreciate your help in troubleshooting this issue with us! This is what I'm seeing on my end. Link 

I noticed when intially launching the course the window needed to be resized to see the entire slide. This can be changed in the launch behavior in SCORM cloud and other Learning Management Systems. If you are referring to something else, would you mind sharing a screen recording with us?

thank you for your support. Unfortunately it doesn't really help me. I still see the texts moving to the left when published. I've added red line to show this behaviour. Please see in Review 360: https://360.articulate.com/review/content/bbd5fb6f-7761-43d5-9010-b75595a77c2b/review. From my point of view it can not be an issue of the screen sizing as it appears even in the middle of the side. Anyhow I've tested all available screen size options.

I'm looking forward to see your comments.

it was written letter by letter.  This is an example. Fits a text then a space / tab to bring the numbers in line (whichdir not work) then a reference. I tried to type the reference (lines eins and zwei) and to insert (lines drei and vier). The result is that line zwei is moved to the left. The others stay in line.

eins %dPNges% kW
zwei %dDeltaTN% °C

drei %dPNges% kW
vier %dDeltaTN% °C

I will place numbers and texts in different textboxes to be on the safe side.
