Displaying "Resources"

Dec 02, 2016

I am trying to create a LMS SCORM package for Moodle using Storyline 2.  I am attaching external resources using the "Resources" tab on the player.  I would like the resources (all .pdf files) that the user clicks on, to appear as a pop-up window.  This would allow the user to automatically return to the presentation after reviewing the external documents (by closing the pop-up window the window beneath it would be the LMS SCORM presentation.

I'd suggest employing a Click trigger tied to javascript to open the popup window (and hope they have a PDF reader installed). You'd probably need to bypass the standard SL Resources options as the pop-up behavior (especially under Moodle) isn't quite a functional fit.

Scan the greater SL community forums as I remember seeing some clever ways to display resources, including popups like you are describing

Hello Chris! Depending on the browser and user settings, PDF links may open in a tab or new window. I don't think there is anything you can do to 'override' a browser's settings.

Alternately, if you hyperlink to a PDF on a slide (as opposed to the Resources tab), you have the option to choose whether the PDF is displayed in the current browser window or in a new window.
