Below are notes from Adobe about the various options in the Propertiesdialogue and their functioning:
  • Select the Auto Load option if you wish to load the object automatically in output. By default, auto load option is selected when you create web object. In edit mode, after loading the object user needs to mouse over the object to start viewing the content.
  • If the auto load option is not selected, in the output you need to click the Play button to view the content. 
  • Choose to show the web object in slide or in new browser window by clicking the Display in the drop down menu. 
  • For display in slide,
    • Border Select this option, if you wish to view the border for the web object. 
    • Scrolling Select this option, if you wish to view the scroll bar when the content of object is bigger than the container. 
    • Loading Animation Select this option if you want any animation within the web object to load. 
  • For display in new browser window, 
    • Default Choose this if you want to view the web object with default browser settings. 
    • Full Screen Choose this option if you want to view the web object in full screen.
    • Custom Choose this option if you want to view the web object within your customized width and height dimensions. Click the blue-colored values corresponding to width and height and specify your preferred values.
