Anyone run into LMS not handling even numbered question slides properly?

Captivate community, we have a head scratcher that we can’t figure out.  We’re new to captivate, but have successfully created 10 projects for LMS (LearnCore) courses.  All of a sudden, we are now running into an issue where all of the even numbered question slides are not working properly.  All of the slides are set for 2 attempts and to provide an “incorrect” response when applicable.  This is working properly for the odd questions.  But for the even questions, the slide is advancing after their first attempt (without providing a “correct” or “incorrect” response).  Anyone have an idea why this might be happening?  Would be very grateful.  I’m having to insert a SKIP THIS SLIDE every other question so I can include a quiz in the course.

Pausing and playing object audio in Advanced Action

I have four buttons (1, 2, 3, and 4) that trigger advanced actions (AAs).  In each of the AAs, text appears, an audio clip plays, and then the next number in the sequence appears. Can I build a pause and play functionality that will pause (and subsequently play) the triggered object audio inside the AA?  (I’m a novice Captivate 2017 user, so please be clear in any reply)

Thank you

Creating a straight line with custom LeftToRight effect

I’m attempting to create a straight line for a custom LeftToRight effect on an object. The problem is when I adjust the motion path, any slight movement up or down throws the whole thing off. Is there a key combination (such as ctrl+shift) where I can adjust the length of the motion path without having to use my mouse to do it?

Fixed shapes on top of an image in a fluid box and shortcut icons

So, I am creating a map with hyperlinks in a responsive project. Although the fluid box that I am using is set up in static mode, every time I preview my project in different devices the objects (transparent shapes) I placed on top of the map moved to different positions. I have locked the position of the objects as well so I am not sure what else I am missing.

Also, some of the links, when previwed, show a big shortcut icon that I would like to hide. Can you help me with any of these questions?

Thanks!

Captivate 2017/19: Make animations and loop animations with advanced actions

This video shows how to make loop animations and various animations with multi-state objects and advanced actions.

It shows:

– an easier way to animate landscapes in loop with the While loop action compared to Captivate 9,

– how to make various loop animations that come in and out of the screen or remain on screen with Multi-state objects and the Effects panel,

– how to make animations without using the Effects panel but with several pictures as in cartoons (e.g. bird),

– how to use the decision tabs to set up all animations in one script only.

This video has been made with Captivate 2017 but it also works with Captivate 2019.

(set the quality of this video to “HD” for a better display).

How to – Link to External and Internal Documents from an Adobe Captivate Project

There comes a time in a project when it is necessary to link to external or internal documents.  The following steps may be of assistance in helping to accomplish the task.

Steps:

Note: A PDF document is used in this example.  However, other document types will also work.

1. Create a button in your project.

Button Link

2. Under the Actions: Set the On Success to option Open URL or File in a separate window.

3. In the URL type the name or browse for the PDF. Note: Browse for the location of External files.   For internal files only use the name and its extension.  For example: PDF and extension .pdf (see image below).

Button Link Setup

4. Save and publish the HTML5 project. An external document will launch when the button is clicked in the published project.

However, linking to internal document require more steps.

5. Once published, locate the HTML5 Output.

6. Place a copy of the file(s) in the HTML5 Output. Refer to the following example shown below.

HTML5 Output

When the project is launched and the PDF button is clicked, the PDF should open in a separate window.

The Downside of Using the Internal Linking Method:

Each time changes are made to the HTML5 project and is republished, the internal files will need to be copied back into the HTML5 Output directory.

Responsive eLearning with Captivate 2017 – Part 13: Converting non-responsive projects to responsive

In this Part 13 of 14-part blog series, let’s learn how to convert your non-responsive projects to responsive. So far we’ve learned how to create a responsive project, rescale it, add Fluid Boxes to the slides, add objects to the Fluid Boxes, apply background fill, modify the properties of the Fluid Boxes, use the static and optional properties, best practices for adding text, using Fluid Boxes in master slides, recording responsive simulations, and enabling gestures for responsive courses in Adobe Captivate 2017.

With the new Fluid Box responsive workflow in Adobe Captivate 2017, you can convert a non-responsive Captivate project created using version 8, 9, or 2017 to a fully responsive project.

Watch this video to learn how to convert your non-responsive projects to responsive:

This simple workflow will allow you to easily convert your legacy desktop-only courses to fully-responsive courses.

To learn more about the guidelines and best practices for converting the projects from non-responsive to responsive format, refer the following blog posts:
