When you hover over an element (the program's autofigure), the text starts jumping.

Oct 07, 2020

When you hover the cursor over an element (the program's autofigure), the text starts jumping. This problem appears by itself and I do not know how to solve it, please help, maybe someone has encountered this.
In the attachment video, how this problem manifests itself. Thank you in advance for your help.

Hi, Yurik,

Based on what I see in the video, I suggest you check the text formatting. My guess is that the line spacing for the Hover state is different than in the Normal state. 

  • One way to quickly fix this is to delete the current Hover state, and then create a new Hover state by duplicating the Normal state.
  • Or, if you don't need the Hover state, just delete it.
    • The Hover state doesn't work on mobile devices anyway. (You can't "hover" your finger over a phone and have it react.) Plus, it's not accessible. Thus, that state is not really necessary.

Judy, thank you for your advice. I will answer you in order:

1. the Line spacing is the same everywhere. And again, it works fine at first, and then at some point it starts to fail.

2. I tried copying an object from the normal state, but then the selected state flies off, and in General it turns out that this is not a very convenient process, although I use the standard settings, if there are a lot of objects, this option is not suitable.

3. for this task, I need the Hover state, since the course will not be used in adapting to mobile devices.

Here are the only other suggestions I can make:

  • Upload the .story file (or, at least, a copy with one slide that demonstrates the issue). That would allow Forum users to examine the file and perhaps determine what's wrong.
  • Submit the issue to the Articulate staff. That can be done here: https://articulate.com/support/contact

Good luck!
