Timeline shift object when changing visibility


I have a problem:

When I click on and off the visibility icon (eye) for an item in the timeline, the item shifts a half second earlier (left).

This occurs at high zoom timeline and when we watch the end of the object.

The demonstration of the problem in the accompanying video.

Tested on:
Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows Vista,
Articulate Sotryline 2 Update 7 1509.1408

Does anyone have a solution to this problem ?

HI Christie,

I tested it on several computers (4 ). This problem still occurs. 
On the one done steps from your link . Did not help.

If you have Articulate Storyline 2 probably at you too this problem. Follow the steps as in the film:

1. Add Rectangle,

2. Change timeline the maximum magnification,

3. Move the timeline so you can see the end recatngle,

4. Click fash Hide / Visiblie rectangle,

Rectangle moves to the left ,


I suspect that this bug in Articulate Storyline 2

Hi, Arkadiusz -- Thanks again for your patience while I attempted to reproduce the issue. Unfortunately, I was unable to recreate the issue in the attached file following the steps detailed above. I did discover, however, that others community members have reported similar issues and the matter is currently being investigated by our QA team. I plan to add this thread to the ticket, so while I do not have a workaround or a timeframe for resolution, I will be sure to update here with any new information I receive. Thank you for your input.

Thanks for your patience, Arkadiusz, as I was in a meeting. :) I was able to make the necessary adjustments on my end and experienced the behavior you exhibited in your 2nd screencast. I have gone ahead and added your thread to the QA ticket and although I do not have a timeframe I can share in which to expect resolution, I will definitely make you aware as soon as I hear anything more from QA.
