Did anyone ever resolve the IE8 PDF link issue?
There's been some back-and-forth on these forums regarding an issue with Articulate Presenter, IE8 and Adobe Reader. If I have a link to a PDF document, with an absolute path (http://www.mydomain.com/document.pdf/), when I click on the link in the published presenter file in IE8, a popup briefly appears and closes, and the PDF file is not opened. I can sometimes open the file via CTRL+Click, but not always.
I've seen suggestions on here regarding changing IE options, Adobe Reader options etc, but none work. My users are stuck with IE8, so asking them to use FF is not an option.
I've also seen on here that users have not had the same problem when creating absolute path links to PDFs in e.g. Captivate, which makes me wonder if this is an issue with Presenter.
Right now I'm stuck with a load of legacy courses that won't open PDFs in IE8 (our new organization-wide browser of 'choice'). Aside from recommending that I make all these PDFs into attachments (they change regularly, and need to be external links), or that I create some workaround html file (inelegant and time-consuming), has anyone at Articulate got any suggestions? Or anyone else, for that matter? This seems to be an issue particular to Presenter (a link in a quizmaker file, embedded in presenter, works fine).
