Packaging Articulate Project File

I've been updating Articulate Presenter courses that were developed several years ago by people who know longer work for the company, or third party vendors. Not using Presenter's packaging feature breaks links to .intr and .quiz files, not to mention Web Objects.

The solution is to to use the Articulate Package feature.

Does anyone know if this works with Web Objects?

The only way I know of doing this, is to manually edit the web object properties to point to the new location.

My web objects use an absolute path. Is there a way to use a relative path?

Thanks!!

Hi, Paul -- Thanks so much for reaching out, and my apologies if I am misunderstanding your question, but relative URLs aren't supported for web objects. Be sure to use full (absolute) URLs when adding web objects to your content. If you need to use relative URLs, see this article for a possible, though unsupported, workaround. Hope that helps! :)

Thanks for the response Christie.

The URLs I'm refering to live locally on my computer and are referencing either html 5 animations created by Adobe Edge, or Adobe captivate projects. When an Articulate project is moved from one computer to another, the link or URL is no longer valid for these Web Objects.

When preparing to archive a project, I'm thinking the only option here is to manually add these publications to the Articulate package file. When edting the project in the future on a different computer, you would then relink these web objects manually.

So the short answer is no, there's no way to use relative paths to these objects.

Thanks!!
