Hey guys,

 

why does Captivate behave in such a way? Look at the attached pictures. In my captivate file the point C is fitting nicely in a line. Once i export it and check the slide, the sentence now has been separated into two lines. 

 

Why is that?!

The answers have to fit in the two column areas. Can you check?

you re right! the text aligns to the box containing all answers. not the individual ones.

man captivate is rough. i didnt even realize that this box exists. since it doesnt show up under the fluid boxes panel.

 

the only issue left is that captivate makes my font smaller for C, although they are all set to 18pt.

do you know why that is happening?

Guten Mitttag!

Matching slide has a lot of issues... since quite a while. Are you perhaps in a responsive project with Fluid Boxes?

Do not forget that you can shuffle the answers. If you have at least one answer with two lines, I would resize all answers to have the same height, you can align the numbers/chatacters with the alignment options. Then distribute the answers vertically. It is not necessary for both columns to have the same height.

Guten Mittag 😉

 

are you talking about the "text left-aligned, text center-aligned, text right-aligned" options?

Or are there any hidden alignment tools that allow me to align objects to each other, like in Indesign, Illustrator and Photoshop? Cause i havent found the options for the latter.

I don't know the name in German, but Captivate has an Alignment toolbar, which you can open (like the panels) from the Window menu).  It has also buttons for Arrange. You can also use the right-click menu showing the options Align and Arrange when you have multiple objects selected. The first object selected is the 'key' object, will have white filled handles, the others have black-filled handles.

Great! Captivate has tons of hidden gems... you need to be an external explorer (like me) to find evetyhing. Do not hesitate to ask more questions, even in German. But I will answer in English  fearing to type too many typos in German.
