Welcome to the community, Vojtech!

I'm afraid that's not quite enough information. I'm not sure if you're referring to a zoom region that isn't functioning properly when you're viewing your course, or if you're trying to change the Story size of the project, or the browser window size.

Can you please provide some additional details, or maybe even screenshots of what's happening, please?

Hi Vojtech,

Ahh, so you're referring to the zoom feature of Internet Explorer, then. 

Just curious, why would you want to zoom in using the web browser? I could see using this feature in the browser for small text, etc., if you're having trouble reading it - but not quite sure why you'd need to use this on a Storyline course. 

Most web browsers zoom into the page content. This includes text, images, etc. However, if you're viewing Storyline's Flash output, it's not going to scale the same way as a web page. 

If you need to make your course larger, you may want to consider changing the Story size of your course.

Hi everyone,

I've been searching for a solution to my problem, and came across this thread. I have a similar issue: the Articulate Flash Player scales with browser zoom less than 100% but doesn't get any larger for browser zooms over 100%. That's fine, except my course has custom HTML content as embedded Web Objects. These do scale with browser zoom greater than 100%. The result is that the Web Object gets out of proportion with the Flash Player. Any ideas?

I have tested mostly in IE and Google Chrome.

Hello All

This is my first ever post!! I have to say that this forum is great and up until now I've always been able to find what I'm looking for. I'm fairly new to e-learning development and this is an insanely useful resource.

I wondered however if you have had any further success on this issue as I am looking for exactly the same thing?

I have a visually impaired learner who uses the zoom function in Internet Explorer to read text and when I publish from Storyline it only increases the border around the player. I've changed the settings in the player so that it fills the browser etc and when we use full screen it does increase again slightly, however I wondered if there was something I could do to enable zoom/magnification. Unfortunately, using a different browser isn't an option as our systems are pretty locked down.
