I'm new to Captivate. When I publish a project it's a bit unstable. On some slides it doesn't show the background--but the next time I run the file it does show the background. If I pause the playback for more than a minute, the whole thing becomes totally wonky--user interactions stop working. My audio won't play in Chrome but it does play in Edge. And when I set a slide to Pause on exit--why doesn't it do that?
Any ideas? Thanks--Dale
Which exact version number, please? You find it under Help, About Captivate.
How did you test? After publishing to HTML and uploading to a webserver? The On Exit event of a slide is not always to be trusted, there are other ways to have them pausing like a presentation slide (why do you want tht for eLearning is wierd).
It's version 10.0.0.192. I publish the course to my computer and test it there. I want some slides to pause because they have text on them and I have to give the user time to read it. I don't do this on narration slides. What's a better way to pause a slide?
I'm coming to this after using Articulate Storyline--but my current employer insists on Captivate--so it has a steep learning curve.
Your version is not the latest. Try updating to 10.5 and republish. However, the actual cause might also be due to other factors. Update first then look deeper.
Small typo made by Rod. There has never been a version 10.5, the most reb cent version of CP2017 is 10.0.1.299. Totally agree that you should upgrade because it is fixing bugs.
To pause the slide, I would prefer to have a Next button on the slide, not use the playbar. That gives the conntrol to the learner. Having some slides paused and others not paused is pretty confusing, but a Next button will be recognized immediately.
Sure Captivate doesn't look like Powerpoint. Take some time to learn Captivate. Doing so without some proper training often leads to a steep learning curve.
Woops! My bad.
Thanks guys. I'll have to discuss getting an updated version of CP 2107 from my employer, since they are the licensee. So I take it from your comments that adding a Forward button to the slides automatically causes them to stop--a button that's coded "on success, go to the next slide." Is this correct.
Indeed, if you keep the default setting of Pausing the timeline in the Timing Properties panel. Let me offer you a link about Pausing the Timeline:
Lilybiri--Thanks much. This is very helpful.
