I have 2 questions which are both related to timing. I think I should be able to sort both of these by editing the timeline but I can't work out how:
It helps if you mention the exact version you are using (Help, About Captivate shows the full number) and the OS.
If you point to the default software simulations this is what is happening normally:
It seems that the default setup has been modified. To see exactly what has been 'messed' up, can you please insert screenshots of:
Thank you - your comment about the infinite number of attempts led me to investigate different options and I now have it working as we want. I was looking in the wrong place before.
Explain, please. Where are the sceenshots?
Although committing failures and finding a solution is one of the best ways of learning, this seems not to have been the case.
Please insert screenshots. If you attach them, I need to download to my system, open in a graphics application (mine associated with PNG is PS), screen the image, then delete it again. Moreover the click.png image seems to be corrupt, I couldn't download it.
For the Timeline: I see that you reduced the slide duration to less than 1 second. Please leave it at the default 3 seconds. There is no reeason whatsoever to reduce that duration.
Have no idea about the Click Properties which are even more important due to the issues you mentioned. Impossible to download that file.
Besides resetting the default duration, you need to check again the option 'Pause for Success/Failure' captions. I see that you don't want a Success caption, but you have a Failure caption.
Timing for the feedback messages is set by default to 3 seconds as well. You can edit the timing in the Timing Properties of the message.
I never keep the Infinite attempts for a software simulation but reduce it to 2 or 3. It is too frustrating for the learner to not be able to proceed until the right spot has been clicked.
