Is it possible to use images as the "Correct/Incorrect" captions for quiz questions? I'd like to use a green check mark or red X instead of the default "Correct/Incorrect - Click anywhere to continue" text captions.
Change the default Success and Failure captions to transparent captions and then find a suitable Wingdings character for each one. Set the font size nice and large so that it looks like a graphic.
So there's no way to define a .png image in lieu of a caption?
You can turn off the default captions entirely and use Advanced Actions to Show hidden images on the screen On Success and On Failure.
Thanks, Rod. Can you tell me which variable would I use to control this? I'm not very experienced with the Advanced Actions features of CP5.
Wow... I just looked and it seems Captivate 5 took a leap backward. I think we all need to report a bug.
Version 4 used to allow us to browse to another caption image and select a PNG to use. 5 seems to ignore it and insist on a BMP. So if you can convert your PNG to a BMP you can accomplish it. But other than that you will have to resort to the advanced action bit that was mentioned.
I still think it's a bug and we should report as same!
Helpful and Handy Links
Using a custom caption image was my initial thought as well. However, I just can't work with BMPs from a design perspective. I'm OK with using advanced actions, I just don't know what variable(s) to set. Any guidance you gurus can provide would be most appreciated.
About advanced actions, I have been blogging a lot about them. For the moment I'm a bit in a hurry, cannot find immediately an article or a blog post that has an example of this solution. Here is the blog post that has a link to the list with all the published articles about variables and advanced actions:
If you delete the failure/succes captions and use the Failure/success actions, set to execute an Advanced action it should be possible. The advanced actions will be standard ones, showing the appropriate image and hiding eventually the other one (if you allow the user to go back to the question slide this will be necessary). Do not forget to add a 'Continue' statement to the action.
"If you delete the failure/succes captions and use the Failure/success actions, set to execute an Advanced action..."
I'm not sure I understand. I have deleted the Failure/Success captions from the question slide and added my custom Success/Failure images (.png) set to invisible, but I have no idea what you mean by "Failure/Success Actions". What/where are these actions?
Worked out an example to be able to explain the work flow:
