A Web Object that is inserted into a Presenter '09 presentation may be misplaced or misaligned during playback if the following criteria are true:

  • The slide in which the Web Object has been inserted is set to Slide Only view.
  • The Web Object is configured with a custom size (width and height).

  2. Navigate to Articulate > Slide Properties.
  3. Set the Change View column to Standard or No Sidebar for the slide that contains the Web Object.
  4. Click the OK button.
  5. Publish your presentation.

Modify the published output

  1. Navigate to your published output, and open the player.html file in a text editor, such as Notepad.
  2. Locate the following line of code:
  3. var currentDisplayMode = "1"; //displaymode

  5. var currentDisplayMode = "3"; //displaymode

  6. Save and close the modified player.html file.
