Bullets aren’t looked upon particularly favorably nowadays as an eLearning element, but as someone said to me recently, “Sometimes you just need bullets!”
If you use Articulate® Storyline® to create your eLearning, as I do, you may have sometimes felt a bit frustrated when changing font type size on bulleted text. A common occurrence is for the last bullet in the list to stubbornly maintain the old type size.
In this video I describe a discovery I made that forces that last bullet – or any bullet that isn’t “behaving” – to conform. The “key” step is at around 59 seconds, where I suggest you use your mouse to “select” at the end of the line containing the bullet that’s not conforming. It’s difficult to see what I mean, because Storyline doesn’t highlight that area and there’s not a whole lot to select. So, here’s a screenshot that may help. The yellow highlight indicates the little spot, right after the bulleted text, where you drag your mouse before adjusting the bullet size.
In addition, I think I’ve found a way to avoid the problem altogether. Intrigued? Check out the video. And, if you do give these tips a try, I’d love to know if they work for you.
