We wouldn't recommend using the Flash Paper page any more. You can include files by following these steps:
1. Select your project in the Workspace and click Properties.
The project properties window will open.
2. Select the Media & Quota tab.
3. Upload the file you want to use in your project (Click browse, select your file and then click Import).
Your file will appear in a list which will also include all other files you have uploaded to your project (images etc.)
4. Select the file from the list to see a URL to the file (it will be something along these lines http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/toolkits/USER-FILES/100-Nottingham/media/myFile.pdf)
5. Select and copy this link
6. Close the properties panel and edit your project
You then have a couple of choices about how to show this in your project:
Embed the file on a page:
1. Insert an Embed Content page (insert > Navigators > Embed Content)
2. Paste your link into the Embed Code or URL field
Insert as link:
Use the following code in a text field on any page to create a link that will open your file in a new window:
<a href="PASTE_URL_HERE" target="_blank">Link Text Here</a>
I hope this helps

Subject: [Xerte] Flash Paper
I've been trying to add a document to a new LO; which having read up on appears to require that I use Flash Paper format. However, when trying to do this nothing uploads. Can anyone advise of a different format or if there is a specific format that I need to save my document as before uploading?
I am not an IT technician but try to use Xerte in creating staff development tools. For this reason please respond in very simple terms? Thank you.
