Question on Adding PDFs via WebObject
Jul 02, 2014
I've seen some great examples of how folks have added PDF files through the use of Web Objects. The problem I run into is that when I attempt to add a PDF document using a Web Object I run into some problems.
When trying to add a PDF from a local drive, Storyline will not let me directly select the PDF file by name because there is no URL associated with a local drive. I have to create a folder with an index.html file, which identifies the PDF.

I have to create a folder/index.html file for each document I want to add.
When trying to add a PDF from an internal website the PDF always opens up in Adobe Acrobat outside of the course. The option to Display in Slide is selected.
Not sure what I'm doing wrong. I have even tried recreating the technique using sample files provided in the discussion threads and run into the same issues.
We use a number of PDFs in our materials and I'm looking for a way to make this work consistently.
