Embed PDF Into Storyline Training

May 19, 2017

Hello Heroes - I have searched through the discussion boards and cannot find anything current on how to embed a pdf into a Storyline 2 training. I have tried local web objects, using a tiny embed html file, nothing is actually displaying the pdf when I launch the course from SCORMCloud after publishing for an LMS.

I hate the pdf launching in a new window because I think it is confusing to learners. I tried launching the pdf within my existing window, and the browser unexpectedly closes each time. Any ideas?

Most of the posts on this topic are years old, and apparently, there isn't much progress with this. So, as a workaround, I followed the technique here and created the world's largest jpg image by stitching together every page in the document. I couldn't just use copy/paste text as there were graphics as well. This was time consuming! Now, at least I can have my learners scroll through an SOP within the course instead of getting lost with a second window opening. I used this for help: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dOaDrU28MC0
