Hello Kristyna and welcome to E-Learning Heroes :)

Thanks for reaching out and sharing what you would like to accomplish.

You can change the background of your Rise Blocks within your course via Edit > Settings.

Changing the overall background is an idea I'm going to share with my team on your behalf.

Hello Leslie, thank you for the info. i would like to change the overall background color so thank you for taking it up to your colleagues. The reason from the customer is following: "we are also used to the white backgrounds, but if I have to look at a pc the whole day it is more relaxing for the eyes to have an off white of light grey background. But maybe this gives contrast problems for some people. (maybe as an option, change background colour, some sites a night modus)." Thanks.

Hi Jacob - you're right. Process blocks have a different type of container to handle the animation of each step, so the background for that block is actually completely covered by the interaction itself. Sorry for the confusion there! 

I've tagged this discussion for a follow up if we make any changes to how the process block background looks.

It appears that Articulate users have been requesting this feature for more than two years. When will Rise offer a global setting under the "Colors & Themes" to allow us to set a background color for the entire course (including processes)?

It's extremely time-consuming to change every single block in each section of the course. My marketing & sales teams demand something other than boring white. This requires that I spend at least 30 minutes copying and pasting a hex code into the settings for each individual block. Of course, some blocks can be copied and the content modified during course creation, but if I'm mixing headers with processes and text and multimedia and interactions, there's only so much of this block-copying that can be done to save time.

Please add this to a feature request, or +1 vote for the existing feature request.

Thank you.

Hi Sarah! Have you considered creating your own image overlayed with text? You should be able to achieve that using PowerPoint!

  1. Start with a blank widescreen PowerPoint slide. 16:9 or 3:1 slide dimensions would work best.
  2. Insert an image and text on the PowerPoint slide.
  3. Save the slide as an image file (.png).
  4. Import the image into an Image Full Width block in Rise 360.

Let me know how that goes!

I agree with this request.

I often find myself having to manually change the background of each and every block to match the branding requirements in my assignments. And if the background is dark, I also end up having to change the font color in each block as well.

That's a lot of extra work. I think it would spare users a lot of time if we could have select "Default background color" and "Default text color".

And the default background color would preferably affect the top & bottom bar of each chapter, because right now it looks kind of janky when we try to brand something in Rise, and it just cuts off to the default white.

I read in the automated email sent with feature requests that "we estimate the value it could bring to our products.". Wouldn't you agree that being able to say something in the lines of "Match your company branding requirements 100%" is great value added to the USP list for such a minor feature?
