Captivate 5

 

Hi people, I am new to Captivate only been using for a couple of days. I use it at work to create interactive guides for disabled students. When using failure captions is it possible to make them appear after a certain amount of wrong clicks? Also I have discovered if I click randomly on a slide about four times it skips to the next slide, obviously I do not want it to do this as we want the user to actually click in the right places and so on before it moves to the next slide.

    Hello,

     

    Welcome to Adobe Forums,

     

    As per you description, it seems that you are using Click box.

     

    On a quiz there is an option to increase the failure level (On a quiz slide, under Quiz properties) but on a click box, failure caption appears as soon as you click outside the area associated to that cilck box.

     

    About the random click, just want to confirm did you click on the click box when you were clicking randomly (If "action" for the click box is "Go to next slide", then it will move to next slide)

     

    Hope this helps !!

     

    Thanks,

    Vikram

    Hello,

     

    Would like to have more details before offering a solution.. Like Vikram asks: are you talking about click boxes, and if yes, did you add them yourself or were they created when capturing a software training simulation? Do you have only one click box on a slide or multiple?  And is it possible to post a screenshot of the timeline of the slide, to see more about your random clicks? Each click box normally pauses at the end of its timeline, want to see of the click boxes are staggered if you have more than one?  Check the Action properties of the click box: there is a Success action (when the user has clicked on the click box) and Failure, which will only be visible if you limited the number of attempts.

     

    If you want to show a text caption after a number of wrong clicks, this is possible:

    1. uncheck the failure caption, put the number of allowed attempts for the click box in its Properties panel
    2. Create a text caption that will replace the Failure caption and set it to invisible (Properties panel, uncheck 'Visible' in the top portion)
    3. As Failure action (will be executed after exhaustion of the attempts) choose Show and in the dropdown list the name of the custom text caption that you created

    You cannot add interactive objects to a regular quiz slide. What do you want to achieve there?

    I couldn't see the link between the answer you marked as correct and the behavior you did see, but you marked it as correct so...

     

    Have to see the properties of the click box: when you click randomly you are clicking outside of the click box and normally the Failure caption should show up. If the attempts are set to Infinite normally you should be able to click as many times as you wish and the playhead would stay at the same place, in your case at about 1.5secs

     

    Same happens with TEB: please show me the properites, is the TEB to be validated, how many attempts do you allow....

    Do not understand what you want, because this seems now different from your first question. Beware: if you duplicate slides, that means that the score of that question will be included twice in the total score! Check Advanced Interaction panel (F9) to see all scored objects and questions.

    Do not understand very well this issue. Could you post a screenshot of the timeline, and of the PI for the click boxes?
