Adobe Captivate – Converting to Responsive

I originally recorded an #eLearning #Livestream on this same topic but it felt sloppy so I didn’t publish it. Today I decided to record this live stream as a regular video tutorial. In this video tutorial, we review some best practices when converting non-responsive projects into a responsive project. In this video I decide to go with fluid boxes, however, you can also use breakpoints if you prefer that style of design.

I’d love to hear what others are experiencing with this process. Please share your best practices when converting older projects to responsive design using the comments below.

This tutorial is for non-responsive projects only as these two publishing methods are not compatible with responsive projects.

Custom Show/Hide Glossary that works in Captivate 8, 9, and 2017

Okay, so I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking “Hey Paul, you promised to never do a Captivate 8 or 9 tutorial again”, and that’s right. I did say that but this is actually a Captivate 2017 tutorial that just happens to include steps that would work for Captivate 8 or 9 as well. In this video, I show you how you can create a custom interaction that can be used as a glossary page in your Adobe Captivate project.

Free Adobe Captivate 2017 Theme

theme

I’ve decided to create a variety of Adobe Captivate 2017 themes to share with the Adobe eLearning community. This first attempt was inspired by one of my favourite wines from the Bordeaux region (see if you can guess which one).

Rothchild+Bordeux

It uses the Typekit font AdornS Serif Regular and AdornS Engraved Regular. My recommendation is to install these two fonts from Typekit.com before using this theme.  My intention is to continue to add new themes that will be available for free download from my website below. I encourage you to bookmark the page below and periodically check back for more themes as they become available. Feel free to share that page with your colleagues as well.

If you are interested in developing your own themes, Adobe has a page dedicated to this process. You can check it out using the following link.
