Tips

 At the time the stack is created, select <PREFERENCES> on the menu bar.

  • Select <Presentation Mode>. This way the children will not have access to the desktop.
  • Select <Show Card Number>. This will enable the children to see the pages that they created.
    Plan ahead when you anticpate putting your
    HyperStudio stack on the web:

1 - When saving - always give your files the correct extension (example: filename.stk) without any spaces in the file name. This will enable you to export the file to the web.

2 - When exporting to the web - keep your HyperStudio stack with the newly created html stack, otherwise it will not be able to locate the HyperStudio stack on the web.

3 - Make sure that you get the plug-in for HyperStudio and place it in your plug-in folder.

4 - Make sure that the server that will house your HyperStudio stacks for the web is also properly configured for HyperStudio. Web Server Configuration Notes (For Webmasters)
