All,

Is anyone else having the issue where when they go to publish an HTML5 file, they find that parts of it are missing?  For instance, I will include my company's logo in the animation and see it just fine in Adobe animate, but when I publish it to the web, it is nowhere to be found.  The only difference between the file where it does appear just fine and doesn't appear is the fact that I made the banner clickable via making the entire ad a button.  This has happened with text and other various elements as well when attempting to make the banner clickable.  It is just confusing because I see the file in the JavaScript file, but it is not coming up when I publish.

Let me know if anyone else is having this issue and any tips to resolve it!  Thank you all in advance!

Hi Axel

I wonder, when you say "via making the entire ad a button", is that what you set to Button most likely in the Property Panel a Movieclip symbol? If the original Movieclip has more the three frames for animation and your company logo appears first in frame 2 or later, it can't be visible by itself when you instantiate as a button. A button has only four frames: Up / Over / Down / Hit and only the first three of them become visible in given mouse events.

There are ways to make the entire stage clickable or a button area. I'm not currently in the ad business, but I think laying on top a stage-sized button with no visuals but a Hit area as large as the stage with only 1% Alpha is one of the tricks of the trade.

The Button is a "button" symbol - not a movie clip.  What you have said, I have already done where I made the entire stage clickable.

The issue with the file is NOT the button.  It is the fact that when I publish the file, random elements from the file do not appear when viewed in a web browser.  I need help as to why certain elements disappear in the web browser, but appear in Adobe Animate.
