Welcome back Johnathan! I was wondering where you'd got to!

Sorry for the late reply, I am only recently back from holiday and am catching up with my emails.

If you install Xerte and create a pages type project by doing

Pages / Create New Page Project

You can then inspect the following script pages in the learning object

capture display values
This is a child of the Learning Object. It simply collects the display values from the projects xwd form and allocates them to variables. The variable names should make it fairly clear what properties of the layout they apply to.

Do Advanced Display
To find this script expand the project tree as follows
Learning Object / Interface / background / narrationHandlers / onLoadStyles / Do Advanced Display

This script takes the variables set up in the previous script and applies them to the rootIcon thus modifying the projects display.

Hope this helps

Kind regards
