Captivate 2019 – Global Settings – Fatal Error

As I was reviewing my Global Settings I got an error. Now when I click on Edit/Preferences/Default on the Create New Style Button I get a Fatal Error. I lost all my defaults.

See word file attached with screen grab.

What can I do to restore the default settings

Problems when publishing a project in HTML5

Hello, we are having problems lately when publishing a project in HTML5. We click on “Publish to computer”, click on “HTML5”, fill everything, click on “Publish” but it doesn´t create the zipped file. It creates a normal file (which we cannot use). If we have a small project everything goes fine, but with big projects we get stuck. My computer has 2.50GHZ processor and a 237 GB hard disk (only 7.45 available). Could it be my computer, that´s also happening with one of my colleages. Thank you

Couse completion issue…any ideas?!

Hi all,

I’ve created a course based on system compliance.

This is the scenario:

  1. The course requires bookmarking (remember where the user left off if exiting early for some reason)
  2. If they fail the course, they need to re-take the entire course, not just the quiz (we want them to learn the content, not just guess the answers several times)
  3. The course has branches (different processes for different groups of salespeople)

This is the problem:

Users would like the option to resume from where they left off.

Enabling ‘Send Resume Data’ provides a way for the user to get back to the point where they last left off, that’s great. However, if they exit the course after viewing at least one question slide, it’s considered that they ‘attempted’ the quiz.  As a result, this marks the course as ‘Completed’.

I need a way for them to be able to get to the end of the course, answering the questions within the branch they are on and be able to fail. Only at this point should the course be considered as ‘Completed’.

This way I can use Completed (they got to the end of the course) vs Successfully Completed (they got to the end of the course and passed the quiz).

Using xAPI output, I only have the following three options to consider the course as ‘Completed’:

  1. Quiz is attempted (if the user exits the course during the first question it considers this as ‘attempted’ so marks the course as completed – No good, as they can’t them resume from where they left off previously).
  2. Quiz is passed (No good to me as I want the LMS to return the user to the beginning of the course if they fail).  Instead, they will be taken back to the final screen in a loop as the course isn’t classed as being completed, so they ‘Resume’.
  3. Quiz is passed or the quiz attempt limit is reached (This one won’t be any good either as the user exiting the course anytime before the end of the course will mark it as completed)

I thought perhaps using Slide views % might help, although I suspect this won’t be branch aware and it will look at 100% as being the number of slides across the entire course, not just the specific branch they are going down, right?

Does anyone know of a way around this? I’m surprised there isn’t an option something like ‘Course is considered completed when user visits slide X’ or Quiz is passed.

I’d appreciate any help if possible please!

Thanks

Lee

Cannot Access Slide Tab Order or Accessibility Window

I’m using Cap 2019 11.0.1.266 and cannot seem to open/located the Tab Order or Accessibility windows. When I’m on the main slide (not an object) and click the Tab Order or Accessibility options, it makes a check mark next to them but no window pops up. Is anyone else experiencing this? Is it a glitch or am I just not seeing them? Thanks!

Adobe Captivate: 360 photos but in INSP file – what next?

Hello,

I’m a newbie to 360 photos. I took a photo with my Insta360 and now I can’t figure out what needs to be done in order to convert the INSP files into a format that lets me import the image into my virtual reality project. Any tips?

Thanks!

Parent Fluid Box Image Scaling between Landscape and Portrait screens

We are trying to get our training course on multiple screens in all orientations and this is our latest hurdle. All reference images at the end of the blurb.

In Landscape, everything is scaling fine (with some work to do on my end obviously), however the background image (set as an image fill on the parent fluid box) is not working when we turn a device into Portrait.

As this is a safety induction course, we need to put as few barriers between someone starting the course and completing it. That is why all orientations of all devices is such an important matter here.

What have I tried?

Tried all different kinds of tile settings, tried stretch, tried no additional settings.

What do I need?

To be able to set the image that will be displayed in Portrait, or better still, have the image represent how it does in the Layout Preview in Captivate.

I understand that it may be that the browser has a vertical pixel count over 627, though i would have expected vertical ‘responsiveness’ too.

Landscape in Browser – Good

Portrait in Browser – Gross tiling

Parent Fluid Box Image Settings

Image Preview – in Captivate

Importing PowerPoint File into Captivate 2019

The last time I tried to import a Microsoft PowerPoint file into to Captivate (CP 7) was for an assignment in my Master’s program. It was a nightmare! Recently, someone in the Captivate Facebook group asked a question about importing PowerPoint files into Captivate. I commented about the lack of functionality once the file is imported. If I remember correctly, with Captivate 7, the animations in the original file did not work. Another group member said the animations and importing files works perfectly in the updated version. I haven’t tried it since CP 7. Today, I decided to give it a try and I encountered my first issue. The background on the slides does not come over when importing. Is there a workaround for this?
