Tabs not displaying properly after publishing

Oct 30, 2015


When I preview my project all of my tabs work fine (Menu, Notes, Resources) and I can see the lists of Menu items, notes, and resources. But after I publish, when I click on each tab I get small up/down arrows with not information displaying.

I am using Storyline 2 and publishing SCORM 1.2, HTML 5 Output. I have not had this problem previously.

Thank you!

Hi, Lisa -- Thanks for your question! Can you please confirm that you are testing your published output in the intended environment, and let us know if you are seeing the same behavior there as you are seeing in Preview? You may also want to check out this information on Unexpected or Erratic Behavior in SL2 and see if you find improvement.

Thanks! I think the environment could be part of my problem. I am trying to view the HTML5 file in Internet Explorer 11. Would that be the problem? It seems to look fine when I view in Safari.

However, I'm still not able to open the Resource. It shows under the Resources tab, but it won't open. Could this be because I removed the file from it's original location? 

Thanks again for you help.

Hi, Lisa -- Thanks for your reply, and please see this information under the VIEWING CONTENT section within our System Requirements for SL2, and you will see that HTML5 is not supported in any version of IE:

  • Windows: Google Chrome (latest version)
  • Mac: Safari 7 and later, Google Chrome (latest version)
  • Mobile: Safari in Apple iOS 7 and later, Google Chrome (latest version) in Android OS 4.1 and later

And yes, if the path to the items you are trying to access in the Resources tab has been changed, you may want to store the items in a project folder on your local C: drive, remove and reload the resources, and when you test in the  intended environment, you should no longer encounter an issue. 

If issues persist, you are welcome to share your file and I would be happy to take a closer look for you. :)
