Known issues and restrictions for 5.12.1

  • The Image Serving modifiers from IS commands are not added to the req=set request by design. However, modifiers that only affect image display work fine. Modifiers affecting size must be used in a complex asset. For example:
    https://s7d9.scene7.com/s7viewers/html5/BasicZoomViewer.html?asset= {Scene7SharedAssets/Backpack_B?extendn=0.5%252C0.5%252C0.5%252C0.5}
  • Scaling the browser window leads to incorrect resizing.
  • iPad 2 - Large eCatalog assets crash Safari on iOS.
All viewers
  • Watermarks, obfuscation, and locking are not supported.
  • Image presets are not supported.
  • Adding or removing viewer from the DOM using display:none CSS or by dynamically detaching it from the parent node is not supported.
  • Embedding a viewer in a table may result in incorrect sizing or placement of the viewer in non-native full-screen mode. Adobe recommends using DIVs instead.
  • Parameters with explicit instance names in the code require instance names in the URL as well to be overwritten (for example, zoomView.iconfeffect=0 ).
  • Image Serving command crop is not supported.
  • Close button only works if the viewer is open in a child window.
  • IS commands modifier does not support Image Serving modifiers that affect image size.
HTML5 all viewers
  • Embedding a viewer in a table may result in incorrect sizing or placement of the viewer in non-native full-screen mode. Adobe recommends using DIVs instead.
  • Parameters with explicit instance names in the code require instance names in the URL as well to be overwritten (for example, zoomView.iconfeffect=0 ).
  • Image Serving command crop is not supported.
  • Close button only works if the viewer is open in a child window.
  • IS commands modifier does not support Image Serving modifiers that affect image size.
HTML5 eCatalog
  • Navigating to other HTML page and then returning occasionally causes the viewer to reset back to the first page.

  • Internal links only to left-most page in multi-page spreads. Affects mobile devices in portrait mode.
HTML5 Mixed Media
  • Soundtrack play is not supported.
HTML5 Social
  • To render thumbnails properly in outgoing email, the serverurl modifier must have an absolute URL.
HTML5 Video
  • The poster image may encounter a max size error. You may need to increase the limit setting for Image Serving Publish.
  • Video captions require a company rule set if the hosting HTML page is served from an external server (not a Scene7 server). Contact technical support for assistance.
  • Analytics tracking may report incorrect play percentage due to buffering.
  • On iPad or Android devices, a black frame may show instead of a poster image.
  • On iPad or Android devices, a black frame may flash onscreen during the loading of the viewer.
