Story Boarding with Captivate

Any help appreciated!

I’m working with Captivate and am fairly new to it.  I’ve researched storyboard creations, and see that Adobe’s Captivate DRAFT is an ipad app that works great for building content in storyboard format.  However, I don’t see that it is available on PC.  This seems kind of crazy.

Is there a way to use it on a PC.  Or, can someone recommend a comparable tool for help in creating storyboards (until I am able to do it “free-hand”? )

Problems with release

I’ve been having a number of issue with Captivate over the last month or so and I’m trying to figure out if it’s just me or if there is/are a known problem/problems that might save me from having to throw about 6-weeks worth of work in the trash.

I’m working on a scenario based course that takes the learner through an activity and asks policy questions at various points.  If the learner answers incorrectly, they are routed to a remediation slide where they are expected to use the reference document to find the right answer.   When they find the answer, they put the paragraph number into a text-entry-box and a shared action checks the answer and provides the appropriate feedback.

The current problem is that the while this functionality all worked 2-weeks ago, now that I’ve updated to it doesn’t work anymore.  For example…the correct answer is 7.5.A, but if I put 6 into the TEB and run the action nothing happens.  Put in 7.5A and it gives feedback that the answer is wrong, but put 4 back in and again nothing.

In addition, I’m having problems when I try to copy/paste something and the whole program locks up.

Is anyone else having problems?

Is there a list of asset types that will not work when published in scalable HTML5 in Captivate?


After much research, we have concluded that since all our training is software training and by nature it must play in landscape view, scalable html5 publishing with a single breakpoint is the best option for us.  We have been using the Captivate 9 breakpoints for the last 3-4 years and publishing for PC and tablet breakpoint (landscape)- but no research was done to see if our clients (banks/mortgage companies) even use tablets so we were building a road that was probably never used as my co-worker says.  The development time was pretty extensive as CP is quirky on that 2nd breakpoint, and we had advance actions tied to locations on the screenshots for hide/show interaction.  After researching responsive design, I also concluded that it was not the best choice for us either as again it is likely our clients only take the training on a PC or laptop given our industry.  The learning curve to bring the team up to speed and the development time necessary for responsive design just in case any of our clients might use a tablet was deemed not a wise investment of our limited time for eLearning development.   This article Lieve Weymeis was the answer we were looking for!

So I know there are some assets that don’t work in scaled html5 publishing from Captivate (such has the rollover/hover) but I can’t seem to find a list anywhere.  I just see the occasional error as I try to publish our test courses in scaled html5.

Can anyone point me to where there is a list of things that will not work in scaled HTML5 publishing in Captivate 2019? Going forward as we develop our single breakpoint templates for scaled html5 publishing I want to provide our developers with a list of what will not work.

slider in captivate to move a 3d obects using seperate pngs or jps – why is adobe not concentrating on Captivate like other products?

Hi there! does anyone know if there is any functionatility for slider control? especially for turning an object round?  Captivate is rather frustrating, they have included VR which is amazing but in other areas they are really lagging behind in basic functionality. I am a designer so use all the adobe products and just feels like its a ‘half hearted’ effort in designing Captivate when it could blow articualte out of the water. If they allowed true crossover fucntionalty within all the other adobe products this would be great! Copme on Adobe, Also lets see a Rise alterantive for Adobe and a new release soon before you lose all eLearners to Articulate.

Learning Interactions That Work In HTML5?

Now that Flash is gone, has there been any chatter of when Adobe will be releasing a new/updated version of Captivate that removes all of the Flash-based Learning Interactions that still exist (I’m using the Captivate 2019 version) and replaces them with quick-and-easy-to-use Learning Interactions that work in HTML5?  I’m struggling to easily create interactive and engaging eLearning modules for my learners and would love to see the old flash-based learning interactions converted to HTML5 so that I can easily create some interesting, engaging and interactive elements.
