Hyperlinks Behaving Erractically

Hi Everyone. I have just published my first full course to Articulate. Despite a couple of teething problems (mostly me getting my head around some things), it has all been pretty pain free.

I have output my course in Slide Only view. Each slide has a hyperlink or hyperlinks (transparent over various objects) that allows learners to navigate around the course. 

These, generally, have been working fine. But on the odd occasion the seem to want to take learners to random pages. There seems to be no rhyme nor reason to this, e.g. sometimes it's on an Engage or Quizmaker slide, sometimes not. The slides they link to as well are also random. 

This has only happened a few times (once in Internet Explorer and once in Chrome), and I'm a little nervous about unleashing the course now in case it happens when it is out in the wild.

Does anyone have any ideas what it might be? In both cases I have selected "No" to the 'pick up where you left off' option. But it's after a few slides that it seems to get in a muddle, not right away.

Many thanks.

Hi Laura,

I wasn't able to find a case for the original issue in this thread, so I'm not quite sure how it was resolved. Can you give us a little more information about what's happening with hyperlinks in your presentations? 

If your presentation isn't functioning properly, the first thing I would suggest would be to make sure you're not viewing the published content locally. If you view a published Presenter '09 presentation on your local hard drive or send it to someone else to view on their local hard drive, you'll encounter security restrictions from the computer, web browser, Flash Player, and network that'll cause various features of your content to fail.

To properly test your published content and share it with others, upload it to the environment for which it was published. Please review the following article for details:
