A common cause for this is display resolution or display scale (DPI settings).
Some people adjust the size of text and objects in order to make them easier to read.
We recommend working with a display scale of 100%, meaning that any other option may produce unexpected results. If you have any questions, feel free to email us.
To send the files though, we recommend creating a zip file of all of the project files, before sending through using Dropbox.
Check out our export as zip guide here.
When you receive the zip file, make sure that you unzip the zip file to a standard folder before continuing work on your Lectora file.
When you bring assets into Lectora, Lectora stores a copy of the assets. These copies still exist even if you remove them from a page.
If you want to clear unwanted resources from your Lectora file, follow these steps…
- In the ribbon at the top, go to Tools -> Resources
- When the popup appears, click the ‘unused’ tab
- Click on the “Remove All” button to remove all unused assets.
- Now, export your Lectora file as a zip (read more about that here) to have a clean copy of your Lectora file (Remember to unzip the zip file to a standard folder before continuing work on your Lectora file).
