Do you have a link to a LO that exhibits this behavior so that we can try to debug? Even a dummy LO that you create and export if the site is not public facing? Also, it's not clear if it’s the Flash or HTML5 interface on fullscreen that has this problem, or both?

Subject: [Xerte] Problem with ispring template displaying the wrong size when viewed full screen in flash

I hope someone here can help!

I have created a XOT object which contains an animation created in PowerPoint. In the html5 version there is no problem as the animation was saved as an mp4 video file which worked a treat no problem, however the client needs the output to be in flash as well as html5 (as they have old IE computers). the only way I could get the animation to be sufficiently clear within the flash output was to create this using ispring and use the ispring page in XOT - which works great if viewing this in the default window size, but if it is being viewed with the fullscreen window size, when you move forward to that page, it shows only the top left corner of the page which is hugely magnified.

If I access the page in default mode and then change it to fullscreen, it it fine, but if I am already in fullscreen mode it isn't.

Can anyone advise of a solution to this for me please.

Thanks in advance
