Known issues in Scene7 Viewers 4.9.2

All Scene7 viewers
  • Watermarks, obfuscation, and locking are not supported.
All viewers
  • Parameters with explicit instance names in the code must be overwritten; instance names in a URL must also be overwritten. For example, zoomView.iconeffect=0 .
  • Image Serving command crop is not supported.
  • Close button only works if the viewer is open in a child window.
  • To customize the tooltip format you add !IMPORTANT to the CSS declaration.
eCatalog viewer
  • JavaScript templates in image maps are not supported.
  • Navigating to another HTML page and then returning occasionally causes the viewer to reset back to the first page.
  • Set ImageMapEffect rollover modifier to 1 to invoke infopanels.
  • Frametransition set to none or fade is not supported.
  • Page layout occasionally displays incorrectly after rotating the iOS device. Zoom into page corrects layout.
Mixed Media viewer
  • Sound track play is not supported at this time.
Social viewer
  • To render thumbnails properly in outgoing email the serverurl modifier should have an absolute URL.
Video viewer
  • The poster image may encounter "max size" error. The user may need to increase the limit setting for Image Serving Publish.
  • Video captions require a company ruleset if they are hosting an HTML page that is served from an external server that is not a Scene7 server. Contact Adobe technical support for assistance.
Flash AS3-all viewers
  • Double encode the # character in asset names.
  • Server Support fails to load SWF animations with embedded videos.
  • Server Support fails to load viewer skins if compiled for Flash Player 6. Workaround is to compile for Flash Player 7.
  • Macintosh OS and Flash Player version 10,0,32,18: Workaround depends on a JavaScript bridge instead of a LocalConnection to communicate between Flex and Flash. So, the Flex application must be imbedded in the HTML wrapper.
  • Currently the Flash Viewers support SWFs complied for Flash 7 only.
  • Because of an issue with Java v.1.5.0_06 the server component is not supported with that version of Java. http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=6274990 .
  • For a skin custom URL parameter, the parameter in the Skin URL must be URL encoded.
  • Image Sets with extended ASCII characters in the name must be URL encoded twice when sent to the viewer or the FVCTX request fails because the Flash player decodes the name before passing it to the viewer code.
  • If the embedding HTML page has significant content after the viewer, it is possible that the viewer may call a JavaScript function before the page is fully loaded. This may abort page loading. A suggested workaround is to use an onLoad event handler to delay initializing the viewer until after the page load is complete.
  • The changes to the S7Config.setFlashParam() allow for more than one parameter/value to be passed with this syntax S7Config.setFlashParam(<viewer ID>, <parameter name>, <parameter value> [, <parameter name>, <parameter value>]) , but in that case the first parameter to be passed must be the "image" parameter followed by the "currentFrame" parameter (if required), and then any other parameters.
  • When using the skipFrames=frameList parameter to omit images, the viewer returns an error if an omitted frame is called directly either by the JavaScript change image function, InitialFrame , or in the case of a RenderSet that has two or more swatches associated with an image - when the swatch combination referencing the omitted frame is selected.
  • Crop is not supported in conjunction with zoom targets or swatches in either the image= or modifier= arguments.
  • The rgn argument is not supported for the flash viewers for image modifier.
  • A new IE security patch requires the user to activate Flash and other ActiveX applications in IE. Please see the Microsoft site for information about workarounds.
  • Security issues prevent the viewer from reading from a different server on the same domain unless both URLs are fully qualified domain names or the "cross domain policy" is specifically set to allow access from that server.
  • With Flash 7's new security features, if the viewers attempt to read from a different server on the same domain from where the viewers are located (that is, they are redirected by the paths in the infoServerUrl , searchEngineUrl , or the serverUrl parameters ) a security alert notifies the user of this fact and asks if you want to allow this, unless the "cross domain policy" is set to allow access from that server.
    For more information on how to set up a "cross domain policy" see the following article: http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/142/tn_14213.html .
  • Exception error generated when viewer is embedded in HTTPS page. Issue is due to communication with server logging. For more information: http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/flash-player-issues-secure-sockets.html
