Known issues and limitations

  • If, after an incomplete drag-and-drop, you rewind the project by scrubbing the playbar or using the rewind button, dragged sources appear in their original position.
  • A connection error occurs when you preview a course with slide videos using Safari (Version 6.0 (8536.22)) or Chrome (23.0.1271.95).

Workaround: View the published output either by directly opening the files from the publish folder, or over a web server.

  • Open URL setting for Success and Failure options (for a slide or an interactive object) does not work as intended on Chrome browsers.
  • In a drag-and-drop interaction, when multiple slide-level attempts are specified, only the first attempt results are reported.
  • When courses with TOC are published as a SWF file with the Export To PDF option enabled, you cannot view the PDF on Adobe Acrobat XI.

Workaround: View the PDF on Adobe Acrobat X.
