Clean Pop-ups out of Articulate Presenter

Ever need to launch several files out of one slide as a pop-up window in Articulate Presenter? I have that need and so do a few of the Instructional Designers I work with. So after some research and review, I’ve modified the player.html file in C:\Program Files\Articulate\Presenter\players 5.0\core and I can now publish content with abandon with custom flash pieces that can launch nice, clean pop-up windows.

When creating your Flash content, you’ll call a popup like this:

getURL( "javascript:popUpWindow('your_file.html',left,top,width,height);" );

where…

  • left = a number indicating how many pixels off the left edge of the screen you want the popup to be placed (use 0 for the edge)
  • top = a number indicating how many pixels off the top edge of the screen you want the popup to be placed (use 0 for the edge)
  • width = a number indicating how wide you want the popup
  • height = a number indicating how tall you want the popup.

You can download the modified player.html file here.
