There are a few ways to to edit your web objects in Storyline 360

Right-Click the Web Object Placeholder, Scroll to Web Object, and Select Edit

This method opens the Edit Web Object window where you can modify the following properties:

Address

Change the URL that appears in the Address field, or click the Browse button and navigate to a folder on your local computer that contains html content.

If you use local html content, be sure there's a file called index.htm or index.html in the folder you select, as well as all supporting files for the web content.

You can click Test Link to make sure your web content launches the way you expect

Appearance

Decide how you want the web object to display. Choose either Display in slide or Display in a new browser window.

If you display your web content in a new browser window, choose how the new window will look. Use the Browser Controls drop-down to specify which controls the new window will have. Use the Window Size drop-down to select a size for the new window. (These options won't be available if you display the web object in the slide.)

Behavior

Decide when you want the web object to appear. Mark the box to Load web object automatically to launch your web content without any interaction from learners. Uncheck the box to launch it only when learners click it.

Tip: When you don’t load the web object automatically, it's helpful to give the placeholder a meaningful image, so learners know what it represents. To do so, right-click the web object placeholder and select Change Picture. Browse to the image you want to use and click Open. If you change your mind about the image you added, right-click it again and select Reset Picture.

 

Tip: If your web content is located on the Internet or an intranet, learners will need the proper security permissions to access it. Otherwise, the web content won't work.

Additional Right-Click Options for Working with Web Objects

There are a few more options you can quickly access just by right-clicking the web object placeholder:

Web Object > Open

This option launches the web object in your default browser.

Preview

Select this option to preview your web object on the slide. Click anywhere outside the web object to end the preview.

Tip: You can also double-click the web object placeholder to preview it.

Change Picture

This option lets you assign an image to the web object placeholder. Choose a Picture from File or browse royalty-free Content Library Photos.

Rename

Use this option to change the default name assigned to web objects (Web Object 1, Web Object 2, etc.).

Another way to rename web objects and other items is to use the timeline.

Size and Position

This is another way to specify an exact size and position for your web object placeholder on the slide.
