Chrome, HTML5 and looking at alternatives

Hey all, 

Bit of a long-winded mail - so please bear with me!

We are publishing our content to CDs. We've previously published content for HTML5 as our work is a mix of  slideshow, quiz, audio, video, PDF and this seems to have been the best solution for PC/MAC and across browsers.

We choose to use HTML5 as we got this message when trying to view a PDF from disc (i.e. locally): "The hyperlink feature on this slide has been disabled while viewing locally because your browser does not support it. "

With the current Chrome 44 issue, we're looking at alternatives. So far I'm thinking our best bet is to avoid including PDF/external links within our CDs and publish only Articulate Quiz, Slideshow, Audio and Video. This way we can export as CD with Flash/basic HTML options only. 

Has anyone got any suggestions of how best to include PDF without using the HTML5 version?

And finally, does anyone know if there would be a way to export for CD with a HTML5 version included in the package. 

Thanks in advance!

Hi Ian,

When you publish for CD you will see a file generated that includes the story.html link, but that's still the Flash output. Likely you'll want to use the Launch_Story.exe file to play the course locally when published for CD, but if you don't have Flash installed or Internet Explorer installed on your system you may run into difficulties with the CD published output.
