Rebrand courses without republishing

We have a client asking if there is a way to rebrand modules with different logos after the modules have been published for LMS.

We are creating a course for XYZ client that has their own logo. XYZ is reselling the modules to other clients who would like to put their own logo on the course.  They don’t have Captivate and don’t want us to replace images and republish multiple modules every time they want to resell the courses.

The logos are on multiple master slides and are png files. They haven’t asked yet, but we know the client’s name is also on the TOC/project info.

We are using CP 2019 and the course is not responsive.

Is there a way to replace images within the module after it is published?  Can we change the TOC/Project info after the module is published?

Need help publishing my Captivate

I have created an online tutorial with simulation using Captivate (2019).  How do I post my publication into a platform like Teachable?  They accept .mp3, .mp4, .pdf., .png, .mov, .avi, .jpg.

I can also upload an url…but when I try to upload the index.html file – the screen is blank.

I’m new and have watched lots of videos and read lots of postings (thank you!!!) but I am stuck at the moment.

Captivate is publishing very slowly for me. Help?

Captivate 2019 has been taking a long time to publish files for me. sometimes up to an hour, even for files that are not very complex.

Here’s what I’ve tried:

1. Deleting the cache.
2. Uninstalling Captivate entirely, including preferences, then reinstalling.
3. Ensuring nothing else is running in memory (or very litte).

It does appear to hang but usually if I let it keep going, it will eventually publish.

I have plenty of free RAM and hard drive space.
I’m running Windows 10 on a Lenovo ideaFlex 4.

I have no problem running other applications. Needless to say, this is wreaking havoc with my productivity levels.

Here’s a readout of the task manager. Is it normal to have so many copies of cPCefHelper.exe running?

Captivate 2019 – 404 error after uploading to LMS

In order to take advantage of the embedded youtube video feature. I am publishing to HTML5 and uploading to my LMS server. Unfortunately when I try to launch the course, I get the 404 error – file or directory not found.

I have published as both an SWF and an HTML5 and have had no problems playing it as a flash file but of course that create the Youtube issue.

Has anyone seen this issue?

Publishing nightmare in Captivate

I have to upgrade over 210 projects to Captivate CC 2017 and publish them in HTML5 from Captivate 7. So far, they are not publishing in the new version with everything removed as per the HTML5 Tracker. All images and graphics that are off the slide are also removed. I can’t see what is preventing publishing. Can someone please suggest some ideas for me to check out? I have deleted slides one by one also. But doing that in every project will be a nightmare. I need to know what to look for that is causing the problem so I can quickly eliminate those situations. I would appreciate your feedback.

Beginners’ guide to setting up Google Daydream for your Captivate VR content

Most of you would be well versed with the things I am going to discuss, with respect to the correct settings, in getting your Captivate content to play just right for the Google Daydream VR headset. In the process we will come across few settings and the two compatibility modes : daydream view and the google cardboard view; how can a learner interact with VR courses in these modes.

What is daydream?

Daydream is a Virtual Reality Platform developed by Google that is built into the Android mobile operating system. Daydream is the company’s second VR platform following Google Cardboard, which was a low-cost system intended to encourage interest in VR and was built into compatible mobile apps rather than the operating system itself.

Getting started and Pre-Requisites

  • Download the Daydream app on your compatible Android phone from the play store ( I’m using a Google Pixel 2 device and will be sharing screenshots from the same)
  • Now a few browser settings to be taken care of:
    • Launch the chrome browser and enter chrome://flags
    • Look for the following two flags and enable them :
      • WebVR
      • Gamepad Extensions

    • So if the learner has access to a controller device with Daydream headset, this needs to be paired with your phone using bluetooth , for this open Daydream App and goto settings < VR settings< headset and select Daydream View. Once you launch the course in the chrome browser using Live preview or by entering the link to the content hosted on a web server you will be automatically prompted to pair your controller and setup process will guide you to setup the same.


  • Learner may still go ahead and take the course using the gaze functionality, for which he will see an interaction spinner on the hot spots to record selection. For this he needs to select cardboard view under VR settings<headset.

Publish/Live Preview your course

Let’s take for example, the Adobe Captivate Virtual Reality (2019  release) project which you can find under sample projects (goto < resources on welcome screen).

I am going to Live Preview the course , scan the QR code (make sure your desktop/laptop and mobile device are on the same network for this functionality to work correctly) and launch the course in Daydream as well as Cardboard view.


Once you enter the VR Mode you will be able to see the following screens depending upon the daydream view or the cardboard view:

 Cardboard view:

Here you shall see the double lens view, and you can put the device into your cardboard, to explore further. To interact, learners will see the gaze spinner spinning on the hots pots and load text, image or questions as desinged in the course.

Daydream View:

If you have selected daydream view, you will be guided as per the following screens to put you device in headset, and then pair the controller.

Once done with these steps you will be able to see the course link in the chrome browser inside the Daydream App.

Go ahead and give it a try, and feel free to post  questions on this blog. This blog was aimed at familiarizing with the setup and the correct environment on Google Daydream and stay tuned for more blogs on exciting new features in  Captivate 2019 release.

Opening .aspx file on SharePoint for Captivate Project

I am able to add the HTML5 Captivate project to SharePoint and access the .aspx file mentioned in this post. But once I click it, it opens to a webpage, but I get a loading icon below. The page has been open for several minutes and I still have not see the project. What could I be doing wrong? Is the aspx file not supported on SharePoint Online?

Thanks in advance for help, suggestions, and advice.
