When you create a new interaction in Engage 360, the slide size defaults to 720 pixels wide by 540 pixels high, but you can change it to any size you'd like.

Changing Your Interaction Size

  1. Click Interaction Size on the Engage ribbon.
  2. When the Change Interaction Size window appears, choose an option from the Interaction Size drop-down. If you choose Custom, enter the Width and Height in pixels.
  3. Mark Lock aspect ratio if you want to maintain the current slide proportions when you change one dimension or the other.
  4. Click OK to accept the new interaction size.

How Player Features Affect Published Size

The overall size of your published output will be slightly larger than your slide dimensions. That's because the player (the interface around the perimeter of your slides) adds some width and height.

For standalone interactions, the player adds 20 pixels to the width and up to 94 pixels to the height, depending on the player feature you choose.

For an interaction that’s part of a Presenter course, the player adds up to 260 pixels to the width and up to 118 pixels to the height, depending on the player features you choose.

When Your Interaction Is Part of an Articulate Presenter Course…

When your interaction is part of a Presenter course, we recommend using the same slide size in Engage and PowerPoint. If they're different, the interaction will be centered on the PowerPoint slide and, if necessary, scaled down to fit within the slide.

If an interaction has different dimensions than PowerPoint, the slide background color from the Presenter player will show around the interaction. To change this color, do the following:

  1. Open your presentation in PowerPoint.
  2. Go to the Articulate tab on the ribbon and click Player.
  3. Click Colors & Effects on the ribbon.
  4. Click Show advanced color editing.
  5. From the Edit item drop-down, choose Base >> Slide Background.
  6. Use the color selectors to choose your background colors.
  7. Click OK.

Tip: The player colors in Presenter take precedence over the player colors in Engage. Be sure to set your player colors in Presenter.
