Hey guys,

at the moment I'm trying to build the views for phones and tablets.
Desktop: I'm using a horizantal menu. But it is too long for the other views.

I can't change the menu only for phone/tablet, right? Am I right that I have to insert a new one for phone and tablet and place the "old" horizontal menu out of the screen?

I'm not sure whether that is the right way because the result is: I have lots of items in each views out of the screen....

Thank you!

    Seems like you can't adjust a menu object for the different views. If you don't want to build your own menu from scratch, you'd need 3 different menus, 1 for Desktop and Tablet Landscape, 1 for Phone Landscape and Tablet Portrait and 1 for Phone Portrait. That'll make just 2 objects outside the stage ;-)

    There isn't a way to set the menu to show differently in the views but you can include two menus on the page, both hidden.  Then have one of them show depending on what view the learner is in.  The variable is called Current View and when placed in a course it recognizes what type of device is being run and can be used to show, hide and even complete more complex actions when needed.  Here's a video that should help: http://community.trivantis.com/knowledge-base/device-rotation-and-current-view/

    I'm with Tim here. I'd definitely just drag it off the page. Much easier to maintain than all the extra actions.

    Thanks for your help. Tim K, you are right: In the case of the menu object, there are only two objects outside the stage. But adjusting the rest of the content will end in more and more objects outside;) A fact I don't like - but that's of course subjective.

    Hi guys,

    new question or problem: If I move an object in phone-view it sometimes also changes its location in desktop-view. How can I avoid that? Could'nt figure out in which cases there's a movement in both views and in which not.

    Thanks - again:)

    If you hold Ctrl+Shift while moving/resizing an object in any view, it will move/resize in all views regardless of inheritance.

    Also, if you share your title, I'd be able to suggest ways to simplify its structure to avoid having too many objects off the page in each view.
