Is there a way to remove the text at the top of the table of contents that says "Slide Title" with a little flag next to it?

I've searched and can't seem to find how to turn that off.

Thanks

Slide Title is part of the skin - it can not be turned off

David, it can be translated, but it is a very old workflow, not sure it still works in CP2017.

Lieve this is what I have been talking about. If Adobe is serious about keeping Captivate as the premiere eLearning tool for educators, instructional designers  and online learning developers - continuous "javascript hacks" like this or things like sliders or whatever, to do things the software should do, will continue to turn off the bulk of Captivate users. They are educators, trainers, instructors -  - if you need a rollout of training in a company for a new marketing initiative or have to train staff on a mandated government regulation, you don't have the time and resources to spend your time becoming a software "programmer"- that's Adobe's job - that's why you buy the software

You know I totally agree with you, David. Problem is also that many users now think they cannot solve any situation without JS, which is not the case. Advanced actions, or applying already created shared actions, are within the skill level of a great part of those people, which is not the case IMO for JS when I look at the questions everywhere.

In my career I only needed JS for occasionally randomizing, and some formatting (like for dates, time).

Offering a library with shared actions could already be a start....

If you're feeling ambitious you could build your own table of contents. This way you have full control over what it contains. Check out this tutorial I did a year or so ago.

Thanks Paul. I did watch your video which is very well done. Thanks! I think I'll stick with the existing TOC i've got.

Old thread, but for anyone who would like to change/replace the text "Slide Title" in the TOC heading, this works well:

$(document).ready(function() {
   $(".tocSlideTitleHeading nobr").replaceWith("<span>New Title</span>");
});

 

The <nobr> tag Adobe is using is not only ancient, its nonstandard HTML and may behave inconsistently on modern browsers.  Replacement with span tag is what Adobe should have done years ago.  Kind of sad that it's still part of Captivate 2019.

Wrappingm that is. I changed it to Table of Conents, and it wraps after Table, and half of the "of Conents gets cut off.

 

Also, this does not impact the start page. I wish I could hide the TOC on the start page and wait to see it until after the user hits play and reaches slide1.
