Hi, I'm putting together a libguide and want to use a Xerte tutorial. Inserting it is not problematic but resizing the tutorial to fit the window in libguides is defeating me - at present it's necessary to scroll right to start the tutorial which I'd like to fix.

Any guidance most welcome!

Can you provide screenshots, links or further info re exactly what you mean?
What project template are you using? Are you using embed code or just a public link etc? What configuration/display options can you control in libguides?

Hello Ron thanks for your message. I'm pretty new to Libguides so don't know the answers to some of your questions, but:

I'm using the embed code, and a screenshot should be attached.

Hi
it's not clear from those screenshots but if the issue is that the only available with is what's shown in your first screenshot then you might be better off linking to open the Xerte resource in a new window rather than embedding it.
However make sure your Xerte resouce display mode is set to Fill window. e.g. edit in Xerte, select the first icon in the tree and make sure that Display mode is st to Fill window.
You could also try changing width="802" in the embed code to width="100%" but you still need to check/change display mode first.
