Slide with Web Object won’t advance with restricted navigation

Article Last Updated

This article applies to:


When you launch and view the presentation, if you click the next button a Flash message will prompt you that you cannot advance. The problem is that the web object will display on top of the message. This means you can't clear the message and you are trapped on the slide that contains the web object.


You can workaround this Flash limitation using any of the following methods:

  • In Player Templates > Navigation, change the Navigation to Free.
  • Re-insert your Web Object, and configure it to Display in a new browser window.
  • In Slide Properties, change the view to Slide Only for the slide that contains the Web Object.  This will prevent the end-user from prematurely trying to advance the slide.
  • Use the unsupported solution described in this article, which involves inserting a SWF file into the Web Object slide.
