Captivate 5.5 Quiz Preferences Pass/Fail Actions

Apr 24, 2012 8:46 PM

Is there a good explanation anywhere of the Pass/Fail actions in Captivate, when one would want to use an action and which combinations of actions can or should be used?


No matter what I choose for actions, for both passing and failing grade, Disable, Enable, Increment, and Deincrement are grayed out. If they are always grayed out, what are they used for?


I looked this up in the Adobe Help menu, but as often happens, the information is too vague and high level in the Help menu for any real understanding.

    Hi Jay,


    I always execute an advanced actions for Pass/Fal actions, that will give you all possible statements (except Increment... because they are never available in advanced actions, one of the feature requests I have already entered several times). In this blog post I tried to explain the functionalities of question slides and the score slide, and those Pass/Fail actions are included in the blog post:

    Enable and disable actions are greyed out if there are no suitable interactive objects (e.g. buttons or clickboxes) on screen that could be enabled or disabled by the action.


    If you want to see Enable/Disable appear listed. Add a button to the stage, then try setting ON Slide Enter of that slide to Disable the button.
