Hi Gwen!

There was information about viewing locally in that article, here are the details:

If you publish a presentation for Web, LMS or Articulate Online locally and view the content from your local drive or a network drive this may cause the Exit button to not close the browser window as expected. If this occurs, it is due to web browser and/or Flash Player security restrictions. To view the content and have the Exit button work as expected you can do one of two things:

  • Publish for CD: If you simply want to test the functionality of your presentation offline, you should publish for CD and select View Presentation at the end of the publishing wizard. If you plan on distributing the content offline then you should also publish for CD. If someone else needs to view the presentation they should do so by double-clicking Launch_Presentation.exe.
  • View the content in the environment it will be hosted in: To truly test the functionality of your content we recommend testing the content in the environment it will be in when it is live. So if you are publishing for LMS, test the content in your LMS. If you are publishing for the Web, test the content on a web server via a valid HTTP address. If you are publishing for Articulate Online, test the content in Articulate Online to ensure that it works as expected.
