how to link an html5 project so anyone can watch it?

I am trying to publish a captivate as an HTML5 only file type and then link the Index file out so anyuser can view it from a shared network drive. The browser opens the play button and then opens the frame of the captivate but no content will display. Any Ideas?

Published Project to MP4 – Slides Advance Automatically, My Bottons Work but Project advances without having to click on button

Help!  When I preview my project , the next buttons that I added work and the project doesn’t advance automatically.  However, when I publish the project the buttons work but the slides advance automatically not requiring the learner to click next.  I appreciate any help.

Frustrated,

Lori

Rotate Effect Not Working After Publishing

Hi everyone,

I have a rotation effect on an image in Captivate. If I “publish to computer” in HTML5, it works perfect. But, unfortunately, I’m required to deliver the project in SWF. And when I “publish to computer” in SWF it runs, but the image is static instead of rotating.

Anyone know why or have a solution?

Windows 10 and Captivate 2019.

Thanks!

I am not getting a working file when publishing to my Mac…

I have created a non responsive project, i have published to my computer using HTML5, tried it as a zipped file and non zipped.

When i go to the published files there is no file that allows me to actually view the published project.

I have checked everything i can think of and nothing seems to change the fact, i can preview in captivate 9 but when publishing, i just get a file without the usable content.

Any ideas anyone?

A Hidden Gem in Captivate.

Creating a Mobile App of ‘eLearning Module’ in Captivate itself.

Adobe Captivate allows us to publish our eLearning modules as apps in a very easy way. This can be done with the help of the Publish menu itself.

In this article, I will show you the process of publishing your ‘Adobe Captivate project’ as an app.

1)  Choose to Publish for Devices (App) from Publish menu. You will be prompt for PhoneGap login credential !! The reason behind this is, Captivate uses PhoneGap to create App from our Captivate module.


2) But, We don’t have to worry. We can use our Adobe credential in “PhoneGap” as well!
Although you may be logged in to Adobe site with your Adobe ID, you need to again supply your Adobe ID and password to login to PhoneGap account(site).

Once you are logged in, you can proceed.

3) Choose App> ‘Create New’ for a new application.

Note: Choose App> Update if you are creating App which is already uploaded earlier by you in PhoneGap.

4)Mention the version number(example 1.0), name of the app(Example My_App1) and the Package name (Example, (Test_package) for the app.

If you wish to change preferences for the app, like geolocation, gestures, and accessibility, Click on More button.

5) Click Next to provide the required certificate information for your app. You can choose iOS or Android or both by clicking the check boxes adjacent to them and provide the certificate information corresponding to each platform.

You can see that “Publish” option is disabled and thereby forcing us to supply Certificate which we don’t have! (You can refer to notes given at the end of this post to create Certificate). But we can have another way to proceed.

6) Key /Certificate is compulsory for iOS but not for Android. So, for time being(scope of this article), we will uncheck iOS. And you will see that ‘Publish’ option gets activated.

 7) Click Publish to publish the output as apps for devices.

As I said earlier, Adobe Captivate uses the PhoneGap service at the backend to build the app. After the app is built, you are prompted to download the app as shown in the snapshot. Once you click the download, you can see PhoneGap site.

8) You can scan the QR code of your App, seen on the site as shown below.

9) Anyone can Scan that QR code in their mobile and install App in that.

Important Note:

Free account allows one private app, unlimited open source apps. So if you try to build the second App from the Captivate, you will get an error “Private app limit reached”!

But you can update your previously created App.

Creating a certificate for iOS

  1. Refer to the apple developer support site and create an app developer certificate. Refer to program enrollment for more information.
  2. Refer to the instructions on the PhoneGap build site as mentioned below to convert the certificates into supported P12 format and upload the certificates:
    1. Convert an apple developer certificate to a P12 on Mac and Windows

How to create a ‘Please rotate your screen’ warning message that becomes visible only when the user rotates phone to Portrait mode?

Hello my fellow Captivate experts.

I am using Captivate 2019, I have a responsive project. I can see in the settings that I can restrict Landscape view but I cannot restrict Portrait view. I want my project to be available in Landscape only.

Is there a way to block the entire project from being viewed in Portrait mode? If not, I am thinking to create a black shape with some warning text telling the user to rotate their screen. But I want this shape to become visible on all slides,  triggered only when the phone or tablet is rotated in Portrait mode. Obviously I do not want the warning to be visible in Landscape mode.

Appreciate any suggestions.

Robert

Error while running executable (published output of captivate project)

While running ‘Executable’ (Captivate project’s published file) in Windows 7, the program runs fine but while closing (while exiting) it always gives an error “This program requires Flash.OCX which is no longer included in this version of Windows.” Even I installed different version of Flash Player but that message is still coming.

Any idea to solve this?
