I'm sorry if this question has been asked before.
Is it possible to add interactivity (such as pan/zoom or slideshow) to a smooth scrolling page?
I tried to upload an article with interactive items to my folio but all i get is an error.
Thanks in advance for your help!
"Interactivity on smooth scrolling pages is no different than on any other pages."
Just to correct you there Bob, some interactivity is VERY different
You shouldn't be getting errors when uploading pages unless you've specified something wrong, but certain types of interactivity are tempremental when viewing.
Large MSO's - longer than page bleed don't work very well, they don't appear properly in certain views on the nav that sort of stuff, but the upload error shouldn't be to do with the interactivity
could you tell us the error message?
So, the smooth scrolling document (2048 px - 8000 px) works perfectly fine when there is a slideshow in it. But as soon as i select pan and zoom, things start to go wrong.
When i try to update the article, this error appears: content generation error [Error: Invalid asset].
What file format have you used in the pan and zoom?
If I remember rightly I could only get it to work properly with a certain type of image file in the box
Also the size is a key factor, does this pan and zoom span across the page borders?
Thought it might have, that's where we had problems
Don't listen to that previous comment - it's got nothing to do with poor design
DPS is a tool to help you realise idea's - if you're small minded enough to limit yourself to what you can and can't do then that's your problem
Keep experimenting and asking questions
It's the only way to learn.
I wasn't putting words anywhere - you insinuated that an MSO that passes a page bleed is poor design
I personally feel you are wrong.
So I was mentioning to Frisco that there are boundaries some people use and there are boundaries others use
If you bleed an MSO off the page entirely you run the risk of that MSO bleeding into the next page.
And unless you want your reader scrolling up and down and back again to view the content, yes, going larger than one screen on an MSO on a scrolling page is poor design.
