Set custom aspect ratio of the Course Presentation

Hallo,

i would like to use some screenshots as background image in the Course Presentation. Unfortunately, the aspect ratio from the images and the Course Presentation are different. So i got edges. I try to fix it with css, but it didn't work well. To crop the images is also not a solution.

Is there a way to set the aspect ratio of the Course Presentation ?

Thank you for your work on this wonderful plugin.

Greetings

Hi, if you could send the screenshot or just the dimensions of it I could give it a go.

The Course Presentation content type is displayed using a 16/9 ratio (including the bottom toolbar). There is currently no way to change this without changing the JavaScript, which I don't recommend doing. So unfortunately, your only option is to crop the image (afaik).

Hallo,

thank you for the quick answer. :)

Too bad that I never work before with Java Script . I will submit a request in the feature request forum.

@timothylim: thank you for your help :)

We use screenshot with 1920x1080 (16:9). Unfortunately, we get in the view gray edges. Course Presentation with edges.

 

Many greetings and thanks

Have you tried using the background-image feature?

You also have the Active surface mode, which removes the navigation bar. This should make your 16:9 images fit exactly.

Hallo fnoks,

Thank you for your help. That was exactly what we were looking for :)

Great! :)

Hi,

Came across this discussion, as I have the same problem with the aspect ratio of the uploded images. I'm making a course presentation, uploading each PPT slide as background image in jpg (10 in total). With navigation bar gone, when using Active surface mode, how can a viewer move between slides? Other than using go to slide on each slide.

Thanks.
