Storyline: Simulation recording size to maximise screen space at 1024×768 resolution

Storyline: Simulation recording size to maximise screen space at 1024×768 resolution

After testing, the maximum size to record a simulation in Storyline that will be scaled 100% (so not fuzzy etc) and fit on a monitor with 1024×768 resolution is… DRUMROLL

988x642.

This fits maximised from 1024×768 in Chrome, Firefox and IE.

A popup window works well with Javascript here – pops up at 1004×658.

Code for the popup window:

<a href="story.html", onclick="javascript:void window.open('story.html','simulationWindow','width=1004,height=658,toolbar=0,menubar=0,location=0,status=0,scrollbars=0,resizeable=1,left=0,top=0'; return false;">popup</a>

To make the scrollbars go away in Chrome, in the publish shell (story.html), need to add ‘overflow-x:hidden; overflow-y:hidden’ to the html CSS tag at the top of the source code.

This code is optimised for IE 11; the Storyline bottom and right borders are slightly covered in Firefox and Chrome – no biggy.

For 16:9, same deal – story size can be 988×556 to fit horizontally on a 4:3 1024×768 resolution at 100%.
