Support Warning

Yesterday,  my creative cloud would not load.  After 2 hours of technical support from Adobe, creative cloud was fixed.  Unfortunately, the fixed was to uninstall all Adobe products, and then re-installing the products.  So I had to install CP 2017 and CP 9.  Support was not aware that they deleted CP, and I was under the assumption that only the cloud products were erased.  Be careful to verify with support about what software they will be removing when they want to do a complete wipe of your Adobe directory.

Adobe Captivate 2017 project size vs. Captivate 9 project size

I recently built a new project in Captivate 2017 and was having issues optimizing the size to play well in our LMS. I rebuilt the same project(same images and audio) in Captivate 9 and it saved as a third of the size that it was in Captivate 2017. ( example Cap.9  was 112 MB and Cap. 2017 was 360 MB ) Has anyone else noticed this and have suggestions on how to optimize the size in 2017?

Atrasando o próximo código em segundos.

Como está você, espero que bem!

Dando sequência a Ações Avançadas no Captivate 2017, vou apresentar um código que atrasa em segundos a próxima ação.

Imagine que você deseja criar uma balão e deseja que o mesmo fique por um determinado tempo na tela, uns 15 segundos para que haja tempo de leitura.

Para isso, adicionamos uma Ação Avançada chamada de Atrasar Próximas acoes em: e você entra com uma literal com o valor desejado, vejamos na imagem a seguir:

A Ação que adicionei, fará com que, o slide demore 10 segundo antes de continuar.

Você poderá atribuir essa ação para diversos Comandos, diversas tipos de ações. É uma Ação bem interessante para leitura do slide, apresentação de uma imagem, Gamificações entre outros.

Abraços e até o próximo tutorial.

What are the 3 top activities in Captivate?

I am putting together a brief peomo/explanatory note for my boss about  Captivate  and I would really appreciate your opinion about top 3 interactive features.

Alternetevly , if you could screenrecord  a  cool activity you came accross  and share it with me it would be great! I am  loving Captivate, well I have been using the  interactive Adobe Forms for last 10 years….I have no idea why they split timeline and storyboard, these are two common video editing  visualisation methods.


I accidentally downloaded Captivate Prime app today and it is clear it was developed for a sizeable financial firm like Wells Fargo. The SaleForce is the system I usedd to attrribute the sale credit to the Sales I do not know if it used in any other industry. To cut to the chase Captivate Prime is nothing to do with Captivate as we know it )

Thank you!

LapTop and widescreen external screen – not resetting

I have a pc and every day I am at my Workstation.

But when I am going to record I have to reconnect my pc and move it to a private room.

When I open the program – the popup boxes does not fit. the menu bar does not fit eighter. and I cannot see the ok button and some of the Controllers on the record popup Box as wel.

I see it when I reconnect to the widescreen and it Works like it should be doing there. but not when I reconnect it from the dockingstation.

I have also restarted the pc.

So what can I do?

Captivate 2017 – Loading exit lead time & content loading error

Hi. With Captivate 2017, upon SCORM 1.2 and 2004 publish, I experience an error which I hope anybody knows a solution for. When publishing a project and running it through my LMS or SCORM Cloud, one of the pages in the project randomly fails to exit properly, i.e. it says “Loading …” for about 10 sec. and then the content of the following page will not appear properly. It can be a text caption, a picture, a click box or part of a question in a quiz that do not come up. Several times, I’ve re-published and tried again, almost every time the problem occurs again, mostly on another page than in the previous published course package. It’s driving me crazy, there seems to be something corrupt. I have done all updates, I even removed Captivate and installed it again – nothing seems to help. Thanks a lot for any tips!

Captivate HTLM5 Output Not Viewable When Win 10 is in High Contrast Mode

Hello.  I’m using Captivate 2017 (release and a learner recently reported that she could not view a course published as HTML5.  I’ve confirmed that when a Windows 10 computer is set to “High Contrast Black” mode, course content is not visible (everything is black.)  I tried creating a new 5-slide course and got the same results.  Also tried other high contrast modes; some (but not all) content was visible.  Same results when the course is in preview mode or hosted on a local drive, LAN, web server, or LMS.  Same results in IE and Edge.

Here are three examples:

  • Content slide — text in placeholder

  • Content slide — text in text field.  Also, black button with white text.

  • Question slide.

Any suggestions?  Thanks.

Locked states


I have created a branching quiz, and I want to have a bigger “continue” button in the results page (and this goes to the “submit” button as well), but I can modify only the normal state, and they rollover and down stay the same and they are locked, so I cannot change them. How can I unlock them??? they are image buttons. I tried to change the default but it doesn’t have anything about size.
