Just beware of duplicate titles.
If some nav thing just isn't working when it looks like it should, open the xml source in NotePad or something and see if you have a dupe title in there.

Re: [Xerte] Some questions from a new user



href="asfunction:_level0.engine.navToPage,yourpagetitle">Click Me</a>


Where yourpagetitle is the case sensitive title of the page you
wish to link to.


Julian this works on my installations because you sent me a file
previously but is it also valid in the current download?


Also could we have that as a right click option at some point? E.g.
like the hyperlink option but that adds the javascript and displays a text box to
add the page title to link to

Hi Julian,

Many thanks for your quick response will take a look at points 2 & 3
however with regard to linking I’m wanting to link within the flash
object to another slide in the flash object  - Is this possible?

     Yes. Link to the URL of the other pieces. You can
right click text, select hyperlink, and the paste in the URL to jump 2. 

2.      It’s
possible, but there’s  bit to do. You can look at the code for the
youtube templates, and see if you can apply it to the MP template.

3.      Yes. Go to the
properties panel, export,

Dear List,

I’ve just come across Xerteonline toolkit and am really impressed by what
is does and with it’s ease, I managed to mock up a learning object on
Parkinson’s disease with relative ease.

However following feedback from the Doctor I’m working with we have the
following questions:

1.     Is it possible to place internal links from within the
learning object to another section using the online toolkit? 

2.     with the Multiple Perspectives Template you can insert
multiple videos onto one page, how would I go about modifying this template so
that the videos could be served from youtube rather than locally stored? Or is
this possible? 

3.     Is it possible to move projects created from the online
toolkit to the desktop app?

Thanks in advance for any help or advice
