Realize that everything is now responsive in the all new Captivate...but is there a way to change the slide size to 1280x720?  This is the only size that we can upload into our LMS.  Thank you!

At this point in time (August 2023) the new Captivate 12 does not yet have the ability to fix the project size to a specific height and width as it did in previous versions. Captivate 12 is only capable of creating responsive output. Adobe has stated that the previous functionality will eventually be added but there is no information about how long users will need to wait for this.

Due to your question I wonder if your LMS even supports responsive projects, or if you really need the projects to be responsive? If the answer is negative please keep to Captivate Classic (11.8.2) which you can use along with the new version on the same license. The 'obsession' (sorry for that word) that every project needs to be responsive is stubborn, but many companies don't want responsive projects for security or content reasons.

Thank you both for these responses.  We are testing the new Captivate now with our LMS capabilities.

Hello! I have the same question to load the slide size as a fixed size in Captivate 12 by editing HTML or JS files within the SCORM zipped package. I realize that Captivate 12 wants to be completely responsive, but content is reflowing where it shouldn't when uploaded to the LMS and our users will only be using laptops to consume the eLearning content anyway. Does anyone know of a coding fix for this? Thanks!

Please, use Captivate Classic and create a non-responsive, scalable project. You will have all the control you want and a lot more features.

Totally agree with you! However, everything I read points to Captivate 12 being the go forward software and that Classic will be going away. I'm trying to avoid creating an eLearning course in Classic and then having to move it to Captivate 12 (or whatever versioning number they go with) and retooling it there. Just wondering if this resizing window question could be done on the backend by modifying a bit of code.

I don't believe it will be that easy, or version 12 would have been released with both responsive and non-responsive projects in mind. For a responsive project the exact resolution has no meaning, since layout changes to adapt to each browser resolution. 

It is up to you if you want to sacrifice a lot of features and loss of almost all control over design. How will your learners appreciate that?  Personally I know that none of the requests of my clients can be realized with version 12 in the state it is at this moment. What will the requests be in 3, 5, 10 years? The goal is to provide learners with engaging courses.  A course which will be used mainly on phones will never have the same goals as your courses for laptops. This is my history as professor talking...
