Including Word, PDF, or other formats in a DMC image

Postby liz » Thu Jan 12, 2017 4:18 pm

DMC (digital media composer) images (built from the DMP part of Publishing Engine) can include other kinds of content besides HTML.

We frequently see DMCs created with links to the following file formats that are either bundled with DMC or pointed to as an external resource somewhere else:
  • PDFs
  • HTML
  • Excel
  • Word Docs
  • XML

Clicking on links to these kinds of files will open up the a new window in the external application or inside the browser itself. No problem!
