Course Details Font Size - Articulate Rise

Jun 12, 2018


I've seen several discussions on the forum related to increasing font sizes.  My particular issue is related to the font size when using the "Details" feature to show particular modules that students can navigate to.  

I understand that the font must be able to scale to the device a student is using, but on a laptop with a large screen the font looks extremely small.  Have there been any updates to allow for font size changes in this area? (Screenshot attached)

Thank you for the reply Crystal, but I don't think we're quite on the same page.  The screenshot I included was from the "Course Preview" screen, and no such formatting menu appears to be available.

I tried the same approach in the "Edit" window and still did not see a formatting window.  Can you provide additional detail please?

Hi Allison— seems like most every other text field font and size may be altered except the table of contents.   Also seems like a fairly trivial omission to correct.   Any chance of this happening soon?  I’ve been resorting to creating an html table of contents with links to individual rise files.  Not ideal.  But the fixed font size in the rise table of contents is simply too small....

I am new to Rise and just noticed that four of my courses have no Details button and one does. I am not sure how/why it showed up, but I'd like to get rid of it. How do I make that happen?

For future reference, how to enter information to appear when a learned clicks the Details button? 

Thanks for your help.

Hi Tim,

There's not currently a way to get rid of the details button. I'm not sure why one of your courses doesn't have it, but that's not normal. 

The details button simply brings the course description and outline up to the top of the screen so the learner can focus on that. 

I hope that makes sense! Let me know if you have any other questions.

Hi David,

We receive hundreds of feature requests every week, so prioritizing them is no small task and we take it very seriously. Here's an inside look at how that process works

I totally get that it can be frustrating to wait for a feature to come out, but please know that we're doing our very best to bring our users the features they want and need as quickly as possible.

Let me know if you have any other questions!

I was just told that I need to come in and log this as a request.  Obviously, I am not the first - but I guess (and I am being told in a separate email that) the more people mention it - the higher the priority will become. So here goes.  
Please consider as an upgrade to the current system giving us the ability to increase the font size for the TOC.  Thanks ~
