    html file won't view in content viewer.

    B_Louck Community Member

      I used the Wallaby Contraption per Johannes Henseler's instructions to create an html5 animated headline. The html that Wallaby created from the .fla file works great in a browser. So I linked to the html file in inDesign's "Web Content" overlay creator, but in the Content Viewer the animation doesn't show. Does Content Viewer not support html animations or is there a tip that I'm not doing?

          A follow up to this. My html animations work fine in the iPad version of Adobe Content Viewer, but not the Content Viewer on my mac. How can I check my work on my mac- it get tiresome having to fight my child for the iPad every time I want to check my work, haha!

            I'm a little confused.

             

            As far as I can see, the Content Viewer is only available on iOS and Android.

             

            But you seem to be saying that things look correct on iOS but not on Mac/OSX. I don't see there being a Content Viewer for Mac/OSX. Maybe you mean the display within InDesign when you refer to Mac?

              Thanks for responding. Maybe I can clarify. On my Mac there's an Adobe application called Content Viewer. It was bundled with everything else that was installed when I signed up with Adobe DPS. There is also a Content Viewer app on my iPad. After working on a folio in inDesign, I can preview the folio on my Mac by using the local version of Content Viewer.

               

              What's happening is that animations made via Wallaby are working fine on the iPad's Content Viewer, but not on my local Mac Content Viewer.

               

              I know that in a certain way, who cares? Functionality on the iPad is most important. But for the sake of workflow it would be nice to use the local Content Viewer on my Mac and not have to hog the family iPad to test out my folios.

               

              Thanks.

                Thanks for the clarifications.

                 

                I've discussed this with the Content Viewer team and understand the problem you are seeing.

                 

                On iOS the Content Viewer using the underlying webkit implementation in Safari which includes SVG support. On win/mac, the Content Viewer uses the same webkit implementation that is in AIR. That webkit implementation has SVG support disabled because that isn't a feature that has been used by Adobe customers. Now with Wallaby using SVG, it becomes more important for at least some Adobe tools to support SVG in webkit.

                 

                We are discussing this with the Content Viewer team and hope to have SVG support added in the future.

                 

                Unfortunately until then you will have to deal with only having useful display of Wallaby content in the iOS/Android Content Viewer.
