Publish to Word closes Engage

Feb 15, 2012

I am working on an Engage Glossary and I'm trying to publish to Word. When I go to "Publish to Word", Engage closes and the file doesn't get published. Any ideas what is going on?

Hi Bethre!

Did you happen to publish a Presenter course to Word first? If you publish an Articulate Presenter ’09 presentation to Word and then you attempt to publish an Engage ’09 interaction to Word, you may find that the Engage program crashes.

This is a known issue.  You can avoid this issue by publishing your Engage interaction to Word first, and then publish your Presenter presentation to Word afterwards.

Let us know if that works

Guess it's because of how my corporate computer is installed. We cannot install things at C:\ and are thus forced to have loooong file navigation structures...

Ah well... Good thing to know it works though!

See respons from support below (very quick too!)

Hi Henrik,

Thanks for contacting Articulate Support and for sending your Engage interaction file!

I was able to successfully publish your interaction to Word. You may download the published document here:

Please make sure that you are working on your local drive (your C: drive). Working on a network drive or a USB drive can cause erratic behavior, including file corruption, loss of audio, and other unexpected behavior.

Additionally, here are some tips for managing your files which can help prevent issues:

1. You should also make sure the directory path to your project files and your published output is less than 260 characters (for example C:\Articulate).

2.  Avoid using special characters, accents or symbols in your file names.
