I am building a project in which, based on the selections the user makes, I will be building a dynamic slide of information. For example, if they choose A and C they will get a list of combined characteristics of those 2 groups.

 

I would like them to then be able to either save and/or print that slide so they can take it with them. Any ideas how I can do this?

Since I see that you didn't get an answer, will try. There is no easy way to save one slide, but multiple browsers (and Captivate output is in a browser) allow you to take a screenshot and save it somewhere. Or you can use a plugin to do the same. Similar answer for 'print', you are not even sure that the learner has a printer or can use a pdf-writer as alternative. But if they have, the right-click menu on the browser page allows you to print as well.

Hi SigmOcon,

a good bet could be to work with WebObjects which load PDF files. There are different ways how to manage/navigate the dynamics depending on the user's choices. I'm always using externally added Javascript and won't go into that. You might use conditional Advanced Actions to achieve that.

But the basic premise is that you build a number* of PDFs displaying the contents towards the user's choices (*depending on the possible choice combinations). Then one could create several slides with a WebObject loading the particular PDF-"slide". Such a PDF can be either printed or downloaded to the user's content via the PDF-Presenter menu. Like in this example (forget the German PDF-doc, it's from a bicycle safety training I've recently created):

Maybe this is a way
