Replace the Articulate logo in the player

Article Last Updated Dec 01, 2015

This article applies to:

You can use your own logo in the lower left-hand corner of the Articulate Presenter ’09 player. First, make sure your logo meets the requirements:

  • It must be a Flash (*.swf) file.
  • It can have a link to another website.
  • The maximum height is 42 pixels.
  • There isn't a maximum width. However, if it's too wide, it'll overlap the player controls.

If you just want to remove the Articulate logo in the lower left-hand corner (and not replace it), refer to the section called "Display powered-by logo" in Player Templates -> Player Controls. (If you’d like to display your own logo in the upper left-hand corner, refer to Presentation Options -> Logos.)

To use your own logo in the lower left-hand corner of the player:

  1. Copy your custom logo to the player folder in your published output.
  2. Open the data folder in your published output, then open playerproperties.xml in a text editor.
  3. In the <builtins> section of playerproperties.xml, add the following code:
    <poweredbypanel>
         <enabled>true</enabled>
         <file>custom_logo_name.swf</file>
    </poweredbypanel>
  4. Optionally, add a link to your custom .SWF logo with this code (add this to your .FLA file):
    mcLink.onRelease = function()
    {
                    getURL("http://www.yourwebsite.com/", "_blank");
    }
  5. View your course to see if your logo appears as expected.

Note: This method of modifying your published output isn't officially supported by Articulate.
