Kevin can you give an example of what you had to change, i've tried doing what you suggest re the div tag height and object dimensions, and its got better (the 20 pixels of white space on downlevel browsers is now a scroll bar) but i cant get seem to get rid of the scroll bar
As far as my edge animation is concerned the poster.png is w608,h525
the object tag is now set to the same (it was w628,h545 previously)
and i added a h525 to the div tag that contains the edge object
Have i done the same as you or misinterpreted what you did?
Yes, you seem to have duplicated my workaround. I adjusted the animate object's dimensions and added height:255px; to the div tag that contained the object. You're certain your CSS isn't being impacted elsewhere by another style further down the chain? The only other thing you might explore is the overflow attribute. I think I tried that, but I must have deleted that attempt to keep my files clean.
Thanks Kevin, i'll keep looking. There do seem to be a few threads in this area. The one that nearly works best for me is the one for showing flash in downlevel browsers. I'm using the same technique to show the poster file and it comes in without scroll bars, i'm currently battling with the preload.js file so that it doesnt place a white rectangle before the image
Hi i've managed to get a more satisfactory result on downlevel browser by doing as follows:
nothing (by way of width or height) in the bounding div
in the edge object change the width to poster.png width + 4 = 612
and change the height to poster.png height + 4 = 529
<object id="EdgeID" name="EdgeID" type="text/html" width = "612" height ="529" data ="edgeanimate_assets/llanim/Assets/llanim.html" >
There remains a 1pixel box around the image but no 10mm space or scrollbars time to move on, thats wasted a few hours
That certainly adds a layer of complexity to things. Glad you found a solution though.
Is there any way to get Edge Animate content into an Acrobat file. I am creating interactive content for a report and would like to do so in an offline manner that has wider usage than iBooks.
Hi c davis,
At first thought, I don't believe there is because Edge depends upon accessing files. You might want to try looking into embedding Flash into an InDesign document and exporting as an interactive PDF file (which requires Flash to run, so beware if you wish to deploy on an iOS device).
If you get it figured out, it would be great to see.
If I could create a Flash version of it, I would be able to embed that directly into my PDF.
