I'm using robohelp html and I've been trying to embed a .swf
with a controller in a topic. I need the .swf and controller
because I'd like the user to have the option not to play the .swf.
I selected Insert->Multimedia/Demo and then pulled in the .swf
file, which was built with a controller that displays in .htm
After embedding the .swf, when I preview the topic, the .swf
doesn't display a controller and it auto-plays. I went to the True
Code (HTML) screen and saw that Robohelp had embedded the .swf with
controller=false and ShowControls=0. I manually edited the HTML to
controller=true and ShowControls=1, and then saved the topic. I
returned to the Design screen, then immediately back to the HTML
screen. Once again, controller had reverted back to false and
ShowControls to 0. I re-saved them as true and 1, but as soon as
Ieft the HTML screen, they reverted back to false and 0. I cannot
get the HTML to save with controller=true and ShowControls=1, and I
cannot get Robohelp to display the controller that is part of the
.swf. Anyone run into a solution for this problem?
By the way, I tried this with .swf's built with both
Captivate and Camtasia. No luck with either version.
