Adding Attachments

Article Last Updated

This article applies to:

Attachments are resources you want to make available to your users during playback of your presentation. The Attachments will be accessible by your users when they click the Attachment button.

You can add two types of Attachments:

  • Link: A link to a URL (Web page) that you want to make available to your users during playback. An example would be your company Web site or that of a partner.
  • File: Any file, like a Word document or PDF, that you want to make available for download during playback.

To add an Attachment:

  1. Select Articulate --> Attachments to launch the Attachments dialog.
  2. Input the Title of the attachment you’d like to add.
  3. Select from the drop-down menu the Type of attachment you’d like to add: Link or File. Link is the default. To choose File, click the down arrow next to Type and select File.
  4. Specify the Path of your attachment. When link is chosen as the attachment type, the Path will automatically include http://. Simply type the URL (Web address) after http://. If you have chosen File as your attachment type, the http:// will be removed from the Path and the ellipsis (...) to the right of Path will no longer be grayed out. Click on the ellipsis to browse to the location of the file you want to insert as an attachment.
  5. Repeat Steps 2-4 for each attachment you’d like to add. You can add up to 50 Attachments. This can be any combination of links or files.
  6. Click OK when you are done adding attachments (clicking Cancel will close the Attachments dialog and you will lose any changes you’ve made).

Note:  Also be sure to enable the Attachments Tab in your player template.

To remove an Attachment:

  1. In the Attachments dialog, click in the row of the attachment you’d like to remove.
  2. Click the Delete button.
  3. The selected attachment will be removed.
