Changing rollover states for quiz answer option in multiple choice

Hi,

I'm a noob to Captivate, having previously worked extensively with Articulate Storyline.

Within Storyline you were able to change the states of just about any object and text field very simply, including quiz options. Apparently, reading through some of these guides for Captivate that's not possible.

I never accept no for an answer and I need a work around for this problem as we currently have over 40 SCORM packages with this option and now building packages in Captivate without a simple hover option will confuse our client and the participants.

I've attached an image of the rollover option that's currently given. Can I change this to something more in line with my previous packages, even if it's just a simple text colour change?

First question:  Are you publishing to SWF or HTML5?

The very latest version of the CpExtra HTML5 widget includes the ability to modify the colour and opacity of the answer text rollover background.

I've messaged the widget developer hoping he will respond to confirm this.

That is correct. CpExtra can do this.

That's great, but one question. Where do I find the CpExtra widget? It's not in my list of widgets. Is it something that needs to be downloaded externally?

I think I've just found it. Do you have to pay $60 to purchase this widget?

Hi RodWard, 
Is this feature available in Captivate 2019 Version. I want to change the rollover color of the answer options (quiz page). Please let me know if this is possible or not.

Yes the CpExtra widget is compatible with Captivate 2019 (all versions of it).

You can learn more about the specific function of the widget that allows you to alter the rollover colour here: http://www.infosemantics.com.au/adobe-captivate-widgets/cpextra/help/preference-variables/quiz-behav...

I'm in a similar situation - the lack of flexibility in the questions/response formatting being frustrating. Recently received feedback that additional text was found in the question response in the hover state, where do I even go to correct this?
