Publish Paths

Written by — Posted in Articulate Presenter

Articulate Presenter supports the use of non-Western characters in published output (PowerPoint content and Player Text Labels), but in order to publish your content successfully, you must publish to a directory path on your computer that does not contain any non-Western characters.

For example, if you’re using a Traditional Chinese Windows operating system and are attempting to publish to your desktop:

C:Documents and SettingsUser桌面

… then your publish attempt will fail. To publish successfully, simply change your publish path to a directory with an English or other Western-character name, such as the following:

C:Documents and SettingsUserPublished Presentations

Other important pointers to keep in mind:

  1. Your presentation title must have a Western name during the publish process (since the title is used to create the output directory).
  2. Ensure that all resources (PowerPoint file, custom logo, presenter photo) are on a local drive.
  3. Always publish to a local drive (not a network drive).
  4. You should have full write acess to the directory to which you are publishing.

The problem is, if you are using a Japanese operating system (for example) the path contains a Yen sign character () that is a non-Western character. So, it would seem that Articulate Engage does not work on Japanese Windows XP. 🙁

Interesting. I typed in the Japanese Yen character but it appears as a backslash in the post…?

I’m not sure I understand your issue. You can create a directory that doesn’t contain non-western characters. You might want to submit a case regarding the issue you are having:
