Hi,

I am working on captivate 9. I have not recorded the video but inserted mouse objects later. Although the mouse action is pretty fast in most places, I find it very very slow at some places. I checked all the properties if I was missing something. It seems the same as the rest of the mouse pointers inserted.

I need help in understanding this.

Tried that too. Looks like some edit/update isn’t happening.

Is this a Video Demo recording or a Software Simulation recording?

I have just inserted a screen shot and added a mouse object later. Added

mouse an an object in all the slides. Am not sure why it's functioning with

the right speed in one slide, and very very slow just in the next slide.

PW's question was clearly off topic. There is no way to insert a mouse object on a Video Demo slide, that is only possible on software simulation slides.

Could you please show us screenshots of the timeline of each of these slides showing the duration of the mouse object on the timeline?

People's descriptions of what they've done don't always perfectly match what the screenshots show.

I'm asking to see screenshots.  Please let the poster decide whether or not they want to show them.

Hi,

I guess I kind of identified a temporary or real work around. when i say

'rest of the slide' as a property for the mouse pointer, it's getting

unusually slow, even if the mouse duration is very less-1 sec or lesser.

Once I say 'specific time', it's working faster.

Not sure if this is a solution..will definitely share the screen shots if

the issue persists.

That is what I tried to explain, in vain. The speed of the mouse object on a slide depends on the duration of its timeline. You answered that you tried to change the duration, but now it seems that it was not the case.

Yes, You said 'shorten timeline of mouse object'

Looking back I get it now. Then I understood as no of seconds or its length

on the timeline.

It was a terminology problem, indeed. Try to learn more about the Timeline!

You of all people should know that the descriptions aren't always what they appear to be. I asked because there is an issue with mouse movement going really slow on edited video demo.

The same thing happened to me. When I set the mouse timing to "rest of slide" the mouse movement no longer correlated to the timeline. The slide was about 15 seconds long and I had the mouse movement starting at the 12 second mark. Instead of starting at 12 seconds and going to the end of the slide the mouse would start at the beginning of the slide - not at the starting point, but off the slide in the stage area then slowly, slowly move to the end point. It moved for all 15 seconds of the slide. Modifying the mouse on the timeline made no difference as long as I had "rest of slide" selected. I set it to be a specific time and all my problems went away. The mouse started the movement at the path start point and moved for the specific length of time specified.
