What causes the SL ribbon to minimise?

May 04, 2012

Every so often, it collapses on me, and I have to right click and "Un-minimize the ribbon".

What action/random click-sequence causes it to do this in the first place?

Been meaning to ask this for months!

Has there ever been a resolution to this issue? It is suddenly happening for me too. Every time I Preview a slide, it minimizes the ribbon. Every time, I unclick "Minimize ribbon" but every time, once I preview another slide(s), it minimizes it again. 

This is extremely annoying. Is there a fix for this? I am using the latest & greatest SL version.

Thank you.

Hello Carl!

Thank you for letting us know you're running into this issue too! I'm using the default settings for Storyline 360, and I'm finding the ribbon is always open whether I am previewing or editing a slide.

Do you see this in Storyline 3 or Storyline 360? Would you mind sharing more about which box you're unchecking?

Thank you for your help in troubleshooting this issue!

Hello Ushwin!

I'm sorry to hear you're experiencing this issue! I'm happy to work with you to resolve this!

Does it happen in every file you open or start in Storyline 360, or only with a specific .story file?

I'm staying tuned for your response so we can continue troubleshooting together!
