Text Box in Software Simulation

Hi guys,

 

I have added text boxes over informaiton that I do not want displayed when turning the Captivate file into a video.

When I check the timings on the text boxes, they commence at the beginning and go to the end of the entire slide, however when I run the video there is a split second that the text box is not displayed, then displaying the information that i do not want shown.

Is there a way of fixing this?

Judy

I suspect by 'text box' you mean a text container (shape or caption)? Sorry, but terminology can be confusing, to me a text box is in the first place a Text Entry Box which is interactive and cannot be used when you want to export to a passive video.

This is not a good way to hide sensitive information. You need to find the Background in the Library and edit it with any graphics editor (even with a free one like Paint) to hide the information. That way you'll not have any issues when converting to a video.

Do the text boxes (captions) have any fade in or fade out set in the Timing tab?
