Web Object

May 03, 2012

I inserted a web object in a slide to take the reader to a document on our intranet. When I email the published file for review, the object doesn't work. What am I doing wrong?

Hi Julie, welcome to Heroes!

If you publish a presentation and view the content on your local drive, your web objects may not appear as expected. This is due to increased security with modern web browsers and Flash player. To test a web object, we recommend you test the content in the environment you have published for, such as on a web server via a valid HTTP address, an LMS, or Articulate Online. You can publish a presentation for CD and view the content locally and most web objects will display properly. However, if you don't intend on distributing your content via CD, we strongly encourage you to test your content where you intend to host it.
