I'm working on a presentation in Captivate 5.5, and am a new user of the program.
I imported a Powerpoint and added voiceover to each of my 12 slides, and then realized that click boxes had been automatically added to each slide when I imported. I deleted each of these, since I want the presentation to play through without the animations or audio pausing during the slides. Even now, after they have been deleted, when I preview the presentation or fully publish it, the click box still pauses the animation, even after being deleted. Why is this happening? I need them gone!!
I'm on a deadline and need to get this resolved ASAP. Does anyone have any advice?
Here's the slide that's giving me trouble:
Where I'm running into issues is in my preview of the presentation (F12) in Captivate.
As I play the presentation, it is automatically pausing both the audio and animation as the first talking point "Cash Flow is KING" comes onto the screen, which would usually be attributed to a click box, right?
These click boxes are embedded in the slide at the time of creation of the project.
We cannot delete them from this project as they were taken from Microsoft PowerPoint
Please create a new project from Microsoft PowerPoint and in the 'Convert PowerPoint Presentation' dialog box, set Advanced Slide to Automatically.
Hope you will find this helpful.
I tried this, and I'm coming up with the same result. The presentation pauses at the same places as it did before I created the new one with the adjusted Advance Slide settings.
What else could be causing this? There are no click boxes in this new presentation.
You should have seen the click boxes if you choose the first option (user advance), I do not know why AdiyaKalania says they are embedded
But this must be something in PPT, where you want to advance by mouse click. Captivate will honor that. Check in Advanced animation, Animation pane in PPT, if any object is set to appear at mouse click. The symbols (green) in this screenshot show that there is a click wanted for the object to appear:
I'm looking at this now and it is set to appear On Click, should I set them to Start With Previous or Start After Previous?
I have some of the animations set to delay until later in the slide to coincide with talking points, so is Start After Previous my best option?
Thanks all for your help so far!
Fine, that is what I tried to explain, probably not well, from the start.
Yes, set it to appear after previous (if you want a sequence) instead of by click. Try to do the timing that way and re-import in Captivate.
