Shared Assets as PopUp's?

    Hi Karim,

    I'll try to be gentle but you are moving into some advanced Oomph features very quickly :-)

    Okay, Shared Assets are the way to go if you have a requirement, within your project, to present the same asset on a number of pages and don’t want to have to include a version of that asset in each section.

    In regard to creating areas of content triggered by buttons. I think the best solution for you is to use Action Hotspots to achieve what you want.

    I’d recommend you check out a couple of my videos. The first is “Action Hotspots - Tabbed Reveal” and let me know if something like that would work for you.

    If you want to go a bit further I’d suggest looking at the recorded webinar “Richer Activity using Action Hotspots”

    With the solutions featured in both of these videos you can apply Shared Assets to them.

    Sorry for the slow response Tony. Up to my eye balls in Oomph. After following your advice and getting the shared assets to work correctly I discovered to my dismay Shared assets don't work on our platform. We are using a plug-in of Oomph within a CMS. It seems to be a little behind the update cycle and certain features are not supported anyway.

    Action hotspots worked perfectly for me. Tinkering with multiple actions performed with them now. Much fun.

    I found a workaround which is fine for smaller projects. I've built a simple splash screen "10-Contents" then the rest of the project into a single section. A L1-1.pdf with the common elements with an Object1 sitting over the top. Navigation is done by swapping the contents of the Object1 with a series of S1-1.pdf's. This way all of the assets are accessible from the same "page." No Shared Assets required.

    Thanks again,
