Embed PDF within Rise

Oct 05, 2017


I am exploring the option to embed a PDF within Rise. 

The embed content block allows this however, iframe dimensions are constrained to a width of 760px and a height of 605px

Is there a way to embed a PDF at 100% width and height?

Hi Ch'an!

We're seeing that Rise doesn't display the full height of an embedded iframe object, meaning you'll see a scrollbar even if you've specified a large height. Is that what you're seeing, too?

We're working through this, and I'll definitely let the team know about your experience with it. As soon as we have more information, I'll be sure to send you an update! Thanks for reaching out. ☺️

Hi Ashley,

Thanks for the update. 

I've explored the option of embedding a PDF. The height is now unlocked which is nice, however, the width is still constrained.  

My end goal is to display tables - Currently, I'm using images and PDF's to display the table. Not ideal for responsive content. 

Will Rise support tables anytime soon?

I guess another option is to embed HTML tables and host them separately. Also, not ideal because the tables would be hard coded.

Hi Ch'an,

Native support for tables isn't something on the roadmap for Rise yet, but I've heard a few requests for it! 

In the meantime, you could also look at creating those tables in Articulate Storyline 360 as the new Storyline Block feature would allow you to pull them into Rise.  

The fix mentioned only impacted the height element of the embedded content, as it was being cropped or cut off.
