Hi Karen, 

You can remove the seek bar using the Player Controls menu:

And the menu, or view mode, can be changed using the Player Template:

As for the size of the course completion window, please see the Browser Window Settings section here:

Unfortunately, you cannot customize the published output to a specific dimension. If you would like to see this feature, please submit a feature request: 
Is this helpful for what you are trying to accomplish? Please let me know if you have further questions, or if I misunderstood your question. Thanks!

Thanks I don't need to remove the seek bar or any of that.

I was just exploring using the  Web Object option. THere is see I can set the options i explained ealier; the size of the browser window, hidding the address bar etc. But what I can't seem to control is the the web object opening. I want the user to have to click a button before it opens. Right now it opens based on the amount of time i set, which i left to the default of zero. is there any way to not have the web object open autiomatically?

Hi Karen,

It's not currently possible to prevent the web object from opening automatically.  However, one possible solution would be as follows:

1. Open Notepad

2. Paste the following text:

[quote]

"<html>

<body>

<iframe src="http://www.articulate.com" name="iframename" id="iframename" width="100%" height="100%" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" align="left" scrolling="yes" frameborder="0"></iframe>

</body>

</html>"

[/quote]

NOTE:  Replace articulate.com with your URL and remove the " marks

3.  Save the file as an HTML file

4.  Upload the file to a web server.  One possible place would be Dropbox if you don't have a web server

Now, create a hyperlink to the file that you just uploaded online.  Instead of displaying the actual content's URL (it's being loaded as a web object), you'll see whatever URL you uploaded the generic file to.

Does that make sense?  You're basically using an iframe to load the content & then it's inheriting that host URL.

Hi Brian,

Thanks for the reply. I"m not sure that's going to work for this client on their LMS. What I did was duplicate the last slide, hyperlinked the button to copy of that slide (hid it in the navigation pne) and applied the web object to the hidden slide.

I hope that is OK with the client.
