Web object & vertical scroll bars

Aug 31, 2015

Hi all,

I know when the html content in a web object is larger than the web object itself, your published content will have scroll bars and unnecessary margins.  However, is there a Web Object "size" that is optimum so the vertical scroll bars do not appear? 

Currently, I have built a Web Object (insert in slide) that is  701x525 and when published the scroll bars appear in SL2. I can change the size of the web object so wondering the optimum size.

Hi Ashley,

I have it fixed via the small HTML code in the Web object Index.html by using the below code

How to Avoid Scrollbars and Margins in Web Objects in the below link


I was hoping for a web object resize solution without forcing via html code or a trial and error method of ever reducing the web object size ie: use 700x520 and SL2 will not add the Vertical Scroll bars. The code work-around solves the problem - thanx again

html, body {
margin: 0 0 0 0;

Hi Baden,

Thanks for chiming in! It sounds like you want to remove the scroll bars from a web object by editing the code in the HTML file, is that right?

This kind of code is outside of my expertise, but I know there are some folks hanging out in this community who are wizards at that sort of thing! I'm looking forward to seeing the tips they'll share with you. 😊
