Please help! My links will not work

If your links reference ANY document outside of your computer, you MUST use "http://" in front of the link addresses (unless the server structure is identical for relative references). For example, you may have pointed to a link on your machine and it placed "file:///" or something similar in the li...

snowflake script for Quark Flash

No. Do not add .swf to the end of the projector files. Instead, you are going to have to generate TWO separate files: one for Mac, one for PC. The one for PC will end in an .exe extension. Mac applications generally end in .app, though on the Mac, you may or may not see the .app extension depending ...

Distorted Button Graphics

Try rotating the image in Photoshop FIRST, then saving the file to use inside QID... you will get a much, much cleaner image...

Distorted Button Graphics

In preferences (Edit->Preferences) for SWF, set your JPEG quality to 100 and set "Compress SWF" to off. Also, make sure your "Compatible with" setting is set at "SWF version 7." Now export the project as SWF. Does this make a difference?

Distorted Button Graphics

DON'T be intimidated by the following, as it is my ATTEMPT at explaining something that can be quite confusing: For our concern here, the images really only become 24-bit or 32-bit images when you decide what format to save them. ESSENTIALLY "8-bit" in Photoshop IS 24-bit, as it means "8-bits per co...

Distorted Button Graphics

The resolution doesn't need to be any higher than 72 dpi (standard for web/interactive images), unless you are going to be zooming in and out; having said that, have you tried a PNG or BMP at 72 dpi, 24-bit or 32-bit?
Just a thought...

making all animation play at the same time

For simplicity sake, in this example, you could avoid the loop by just creating a script and adding several "Animation.Play()" expressions for each animation you want to play, then call that script when you wanted to start animating... While this loop version may seem like overkill for simple group ...

making all animation play at the same time

Dave, This is the kind of thing (and more!) that I am wanting to address in a book on QID, if there is demand... I put together a sample animation. You can download it at: http://www.theretailcoach.net/downloads/animation.qxp. You can view the final .SWF at: http://www.theretailcoach.net/downloads/S...

A Comprehensive Book for QID?

I am currently investigating the possibility of writing such a book on QID. What features/lessons would you want/need to see covered?

Thanks!

SWF export

How did you create your SWF buttons? If you created them, say, in Flash, using their "Button" movie clip type, the up, down, over, etc., does not translate over into QID that I can see. I have tried this myself. A quick workaround is to place an empty picture box over the SWF (send it backward) and ...
