I am trying to post my adobe captivate screen in adobe connect. I can see my captivate screen, but the participants cannot. What can I do? Thank you. Julie Nguyen
I would like to have a question type that invites the user to type in responses and then check the answers against a pool of correct answers. It would be similar to a multiple response question, but the user types the answers in rather than makes a selection. This would be a better test of knowledge.
Question: Name four types of car manufacturer
There would then be four input fields that would check against a pool of correct answers e.g.
Audi, BMW, Citroen, Dacia, Kia, Lancia
The user would enter four and be awarded a point for each correct one.
I have looked at the fill-in-the-blank and short answer styles but they are not flexible enough. I am sure it can be done, so would be interested to hear from anyone who has had experience doing this or could suggest the best way to do it!

We have conceived a captivate project (Captivate 2017) in which learners get the opportunity to train their ability to figure out the exact prices of different packages of our product.
With 8 given package constellations in the shopping cart the learner is asked to type in what she/he assumes as the correct price. Using an advanced action and variables after entering the learne’s input will be displayed, the correct price (i.e. the right answer), and the difference is calculated. ( 1. “Your price enty” / 2. “correct prince” / 3. “You charged xx.xx Euro too much / too little” )
Our variable is as follows:
v_difference – v_correct_price – v_customer_x_input
With the learner’s input of smooth amounts everything works fine. But if the learner enters a price that is by (let’s say) 20 cents too much or too little the calculated and displayed difference s a very weird result:
Instead of “You charged 0.20 Euros too much” it says “You charged 0.2999999999999999716 too much ”
As it is all a matter of adding or subtract amounts and nothing is divided or so these odd figures are very strange and we have no guess where the problem stems from.
(We have already considered a workaround using a java script that would round thw calculated difference to only two digits behind the decimal mark (decimal separator). But there must be another solution to this issue.
Any qualified suggestions will be very much appreciated.
Thanks in advance
I don’t mean to take up your time, I just wanted to say hi as a new community member, or at least a new user. I am taking some time to watch some of the videos on demand and checking out some projects that have been made with Captivate 2019. I am learning a lot about some of the new features of the software. I am looking to pull the trigger on purchase of a new tool and I tend to do a lot of research. I am not going to ask what to choose in this post, as I have my thoughts on what the answers might be.
For now, I just wanted to say hi and if you would like to share any words of wisdom on tools, I am happy to hear it. If you have any ideas for me as I work to transition from in-class instructor to online developer and facilitator, I would love to hear them as well.
I have a course where the first slide has 10 buttons. Each button takes the user to a different slide that’s made up of just 1 slide worth of content. Can the branching feature in 2019 be done without grouped slides?

I’m coming to Captivate from Storyline and do not see where you can insert a results slide for an assessment. In Storyline it is really easy to do this — like two steps.
Where do you do this in Captivate? I created a software simulation with a couple of steps and specified that I wanted to include those slides in a quiz.
However, the results slide did not populate automatically and I do not see where to insert it.
Can anyone help?
Thanks in advance.

I’m going to have to try and get a refund for my recent purchase of Captivate 2019 126.96.36.1993 for Mac running on Catalina 10.15.5 because it is completely unstable and I’m unable to capture any software simulations.
Here are the steps I follow:
1. Record New Simulation
4. Click on Text Captions drop-down to change the format of the object and I get the following bug:
Captivate unexpectedly quit. Options to “Ignore, Report, Reopen”
Clicking on report reveals the following text:
Crashed Thread: 0 CrBrowserMain Dispatch queue: com.apple.main-thread
Exception Type: EXC_BAD_ACCESS (SIGABRT)
Exception Codes: KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS at 0x0000000000000020
Exception Note: EXC_CORPSE_NOTIFY
Termination Signal: Abort trap: 6
Termination Reason: Namespace SIGNAL, Code 0x6
Terminating Process: Adobe Captivate 
I would prefer to use the Mac version but cannot waste any more time on this issue unless there is a simple fix.
Thanks, Mike (mlawgsu)
