You can use a Web view to include changeable content (such as ads) or custom interactivity to an App Studio issue.

- Optionally, enter a name for the Web view in the Name field. This name displays in the Interactive Objects area in the bottom of the palette.

- To specify the location of the content, click an option in the Source area.
- To use a local file, click File (Embed) . Put the file and any other files it uses (such as pictures) into a folder by themselves, then click the button and select the file. To ensure that links work, all files in the folder that contains this file will be added to the article.
