Hi, I currently have a problem with printing a slide in a html5 content in Adobe Captivate 2017. Whenever i try to print, the printing output seems to be off centered, i've tried to fit/un-fit the content in the print settings, but it persists. Any help would be apreciated, thx b4!
Have you tried changing the print orientation to Landscape in your printer settings?
And.... correct me if I'm wrong... the certificate widget currently included by Adobe has problems of its own and doesn't always print correctly.
Your Flash widget worked absolutely faultlessly every time and I used it extensively. It's surprising how many people still expect paper certificates and I just want an html5 equivalent and would be happy to pay.
I think you may be confusing me with another widget developer, Jim Leichliter. He's the one that had the SWF print widget for Captivate.
At this point in time Infosemantics doesn't have any HTML5 widget that will do your printable certificate.
Thanks, Rod. Faulty memory... getting too old for this...
OK, for future googlers (and it's surprising how many people still expect a paper certificate) the current state-of-the-art seems to be to cram all the certificate information into the top-left of the screen, and then it still shows even when half the screen is missing from the print.
To be honest, the way I do it nowadays (if the client's LMS is NOT capable of producing a certificate) is to build a simple HTML page and include some JS that will pick up data encoded in the URL to tell it what it needs to know about what course the student has just watched.
If the data is in a User Variable in your project, you can use the CpExtra HTML5 widget to persist the variable data into the URL that calls the HTML certificate.
This way I get more control over the certificate formatting. I find that an A4 portrait certificate is usually quite acceptable.
I ran into this problem. I'm just using SCORM Cloud without an LMS (very simple use case), and my solution was the following:
Publish HTML5 with SCORM stuff, and then edit the CPLibraryAll.css, appending the following to the end of the line:
This was enough for my needs, though one can get fancier, for example, defining CSS for is print is in Portrait or Landscape mode, etc. I'm not a CSS expert.
I really wish Captivate would provide a proper IDS for advanced JS and CSS coding. There are so many that could be pulled in. That would be so cool. I was inspired by this presentation.
Why does everything have to be so hard.
