Hey all, we have someone that will be using Lectora on a Mac (via VM). Has anyone run into issues sharing course files between a Mac and PC?

    If you are using a Mac, you will need to use Lectora Online. Assuming this is the case, I don't think you will have any issues.

    @Christie Calahan, at least in previous versions, Lectora Online was incompatible with Lectora Publisher/Lectora Desktop. Is that still the case?

    @carlfink There are some minor adjustments you need to make when migrating to LO (why we suggest stick with one) but I would not say "incompatible" If you end up migrating, we have a doc on what to expect.

    I was thinking that JavaScript, in particular, works totally differently (or so @MathNotermans said). I never worked in Online and have no personal experience.

    Yes there are... especially in selecting elements on the stage. I donot work much in Lectora Online anymore at the moment, but do have some projects planned in it , so probably gonna be more on the forum too in the nearby future. As i use Articulate Storyline quite a lot now, i probably will share samples and code that work for both. Use a variable to check what tool is used ( Storyline360, Lectora or Lectora Online ) and switch selectors to the needed case. And when running VM you can run Lectora too.
