HTML Publishing And Variables (SL2 User)
So I've been publishing CD and LMS versions of SL2 products for years. No big issuesso far I couldn't overcome. Lately I've been attempting to publish those same courses in HTML(5) and have basically hit so many walls I'm about to give up.
Here is the issue I can't seem to work around. (Note, these are current ICWs I'm modifying for HTML) The use of Variables is not working, or in many cases is randomly working. I have tested CD versions, and in Preview mode, and they work fine, but when published and used as HTML5, they do not work.
Here are two examples, but you can apply these same examples to other cases.
1. A Text box contains a Variable called "%Prompt%", on each Layer a Trigger Adjusted the Variable %Prompt% to different words.."Click here", "Read this", "Observe that".... the problem is the Font is 14pt Calibri, but when published in HTML the words display like 16pt Articulate (All other text looks normal, only variable text is different when published HTML)
2. I have a presentation that begins with student selecting their job (1 of 5) at the very beginning (it sets one variable true, all others remain false). When the student navigates, the variable selected sets up future navigation, however in HTML SL acts like in can't interpret those variables. It gets confused and even changes them (but it works fine on CD, just not HTML).
I'm just looking for list of Rules, and Guidelines for Developing Storyline in HTML. Things are significantly different to someone who only develops in CD and LMS products would need to know. I will take anything at this point.
What I have is more than a simple troubleshooting problem. I have many many courses. I am not about to go back and pick each and every one apart in attempt to get them to work in HTML. I may work this into the process as each comes up for revision.
