hello, your cdf file does not store the definition for x in your case. Use therefore g = Manipulate[ Plot[Sin[i t], {t, 0, 10}, ImageSize -> Scaled[x]], {i, 1, 5}, Initialization :> {x := .5}] or use x:=.5 g=Manipulate[Sin[i t], {t, 0, 10}, ImageSize -> Scaled[x]], {i, 1, 5}, SaveDefintions->True]. to safe any definitions associated to expr.
