My story is saved only on PDF format when published on my desktop?

Mar 29, 2018


I tried to publish my story to web to be able to send it via email to my colleagues and eventually post it on the intranet.  As they could not open it, I tried to open it using PDF and I got the attached message.

I tried to publish again as made a small change, the only format I am able to publish now is PDF. I can't view my project, nor zip or any other option.

I can only go to the saved document on my desktop and open it using internet explorer?

What can I do to resolve this issue? and does anyone have experience posting an online interactive course on GCPedia ( Gov of Canada intranet site)?

Please help.

Thanks Matthew for your prompt response. However, the story is actually saved only on PDF. When I publish, it does not allow me to  save otherwise other than PDF.

The first time I tried, I was able to view, zip, HTML etc on the actual storyline screen but not any more. It's only saved as a pdf? To view I have to go to where I saved it and open with, then choose internet explorer, otherwise I am not able to view on a PDF either.

Does it make sense?
