I've created a Word Search in Captivate with 7 questions. No matter what I do, the answer clues are cut off, and the user is unable to see the full list of questions when scrolling. I've tried shorter questions, removing questions, changing the text size, changing the puzzle size, different templates, checking and unchecking the "scale text for responsive projects" option.
Thanks for your help! Jen
Screenshots would help us see the problem.
Here's a redacted screen shot. There are 7 questions, but only 6.5 are displaying, and I'm at the bottom of the scroll bar. Thank you!
I think this is probably because your answer clues cannot exceed a given number of characters. It's probably not all that generous. These Learning Interactions are quite limited in most respects and not customisable at all.
What happens if you reduce your answer clue text considerably?
Thanks Rod! It seems as I reduce questions, text size, etc. The Answer Clue text elongates and unfortunately still gets cut off. I'm surprised this doesn't work better. Do you have any other suggestions? Thanks so much, Jen
You are testing this out by first publishing to HTML5 and then viewing in a web server environment are you? Testing these learning interactions from just within Captivate never gives you a good idea of what they will look like?
Yes, I'm publishing with HTML5 and posting to an LMS (Learning Management System) server.
Any other ideas?
Thanks again Rod!
I suggest you remove everything from the equation to simplify the problem and work from there to debug it.
Open a new blank project, insert a new Learning Interaction with no words or cluse, and then test that this one displays correctly. If it does, start adding your words and clues in small groups, testing all the time to see whether the issue reoccurs. If you can prove that it is NOT related to the words and clues, then it is possible that either the learning interaction in your main project or even the entire project itself has become corrupted.
The answer clues can only be on one line. When you create the word search and click generate and an answer clue extends to a second line, that's the problem. Unfortunately, you will have to use few characters for each answer clue for it to correctly display all seven word choices.
