Can I switch off the success/failure captions in All-New Captivate

Hi I am using all-new Captivate v 12.2.0.19

I am setting up a quiz using the multiple choice question slide. It seems that it is not possible to switch off the success and failure captions. I hope I'm wrong...

The caption checkbox in the components section is greyed out and the show/hide button does not effect the output

Many thanks in advance for any input on this

One of the lost features in this new version, or at least I cannot find it anywhere. It is possible in all previous versions of Captivate to turn them off, thus enabling a custom feedback workflow because it also meant that the pausing is released when the learner clicks the Submit button.

The feedback captions have a double goal, same as in previous versions:

  1. Indicate whether the answer is correct/incorrect
  2. Keep slide paused and tell to click Y or the slide to proceed.

If I understand you well, you want to skip the first goal? Start by editing the Default labels for Success/Failure messages (maybe they now have a different term) and take out the part about Correct/Incorrect, just keep the 'Press Y....'. 

You will now need to edit the multistate object with the captions, to have

You could clear the label for the Correct/Incorrect messages under the Quiz Preferences, Default Labels. For new quiz slides the feedback messages will appear, empty, not what you want I think.

Hi

Thanks for letting me know. 

Hopefully being able to remove the feedback is something they will bring back later...

On assessments I very rarely want to feedback directly after the user has submited their answer. I am far more likely to use the 'Review quiz' functionality.

You will now need to edit the multistate object with the captions, to have the same color for both Correct/Incorrect messages. But you'll get rid of the direct feedback.
