You can create responsive courses in Adobe Captivate using two different ways: The first way, which is available in version 8, 9, and 2017 is with the use of Breakpoints. You can learn more about using breakpoints to create responsive courses here.
The second way, which was introduced in Captivate 2017, is by using Fluid Boxes to create responsive courses. This new workflow allows you to easily create responsive projects, which makes it possible for you to design content for a single screen, and it works right on any device — any size or orientation.
In this 14-part blog series, let’s take a deep dive into how to create responsive courses using Fluid Boxes and customize the properties like setting the flow, wrap, and alignment properties as per your requirement. Convert these fluid boxes to static fluid boxes to lock the position of the objects on the screen. Also, mark the decorative or less important objects as optional, to make them magically disappear on the smaller devices.
To begin with, let’s take a look at the workflow to create a new responsive project and then preview it in the edit area using the Preview-in drop down list and the Preview Slider.
I’m looking to have a quick chat with training and eLearning professionals to know about their content creation workflow, challenges, and requirements.
Would you be interested in participating in it and spare about 30 minutes of your time to talk to me on these topics? This will be an anonymous and informal chat session and you or your organization will not be quoted anywhere. Your responses will solely be used for product improvement.
If the answer is yes, write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can block our calendar for a fun chat session!

Guest Blog by: Thomas Reyes-Cairo, Community Manager at eLearning Brothers Everyone remembers the classroom presentations of yore: still screens of text with the occasional picture or background image.
