I'm trying to update an InDD CS6 article with updated .OAM links (the links have new file names). But the iPad refuses to load some of the new animations or will only load the poster image of an .OAM file. If I copy one of these problematic pages into a new folio/article, it displays properly, but when I paste that same graphic into the article I'm working on, the old image shows up still. Is there a cache I can force to clear? I have about 12 people I'm sending this to--so babysitting each compter is not possble.
This is, unfortunately, an underlying problem with iOS. It is caching the HTML content even though we are updating it, and there's nothing we can do about it
Maybe try clearing the mobile Safari cache and see if that works?
Thanks Neil, your suggestion didn't work, bt I'm closing in on the solution. It turns out in each Edge Animate file, there are a lot of old images in the Library assets images folder. Even though these images are not used in the stage, they somehow creep in, remnants of an old design. I can't find a way to delete items from the library, so I tried deleting them from the images folder directly. Edge then tells me images ar emissing and ultimately, InDesign won't publish the folio. Even if I rebooth and manage to update the article, I get an error when trying to download it.
So, I have over 100 images in the Library, I'm using 8 images. How do I get rid of the unused images that are causing me probelms?
Just a quick heads-up: the Edge (Animate) product manager has declared that there will be a Publish option soon, to restrict the content (images) and even the CSS and JS to only the necessary parts. That might help ! And the .oam file is a bit messy in some aspects. The posterframe can bug you (not being transparant, or not disappearing), all kinds of bugs are present in the current .oam output. Try using plain web output for the time being, and direct the main HTML file to a web content frame yourself. Read Bob Bringhurst's brilliant DPS Tips app to learn how to pack the HTML and associated files into a zipped resource (which is a bit like what the .oam file is).
