I have previously been a user of captivate 4 and have just downloaded the trial of captivate 6 at my new place of work with a view to investing in it for our e-learning going forward.
I have written a small trial module and have a couple of issues - have googled etc but cannot find the answer so here goes....
Certificate - in captivate 4 i was able to insert the certifcate widget and it would pull the name of the learner through from a variable V_Name. I have tried this in v6 and it does not bring the name onto the certificate - ive used V_Name and just tried User_Name as variables but still no name appears on the certifate.
I have also tried to get it too display the name of my module in the 'has taken the course' section of the certifcate - in captivate 4 i manually entered that onto the widget in the cert slide which worked fine - in v6 that is not an option... i have added a variable with the name of the module but that has not worked. - any ideas would be welcome...
Images as Red Boxes
I have a problem with some of my images showing as red boxes on the published scorm package when it is played back through moodle. We've run it on 2 pcs on the network with the same issue - flash player is v10 and im publishing it in flash player 10. These images work absolutely fine on my mac in preview mode. Very strange. Also, I have some of the images which are red boxes in the main slideshow but appear absolutely fine on a question slide?? Again any ideas would be much appreciated.
The name of the user will be asked on runtime, when the user reaches the certificate slide. You do not have to create a user variable yourself any more.
Which slide quality do you use? And the images are in which format, do they have transparency?
Thanks for the reply.
I tried the variable v_Name (lowercase v) and that has worked for the certifcate - still not too sure how to get the course name populated?
The images are mainly jpegs and png's and bitmaps. I just checked the slide quality and it was on low 8 bit - so have changed that. Cant see an option for transparency...I'll try it with the slide quality changed and see what happens.
Whilst you're about - can you help with a question about text entry boxes please? I've set up a TEB at the beginning for the learner to type in their learning objectives - the key things that they want to get from the module. I made 3 TEBs so that they could write a max of 3 objectives. I've associated the TEB with the following $$TTextEntryItem1Var$$ but it only displays around 13 characters of text?
You need to look for the option to set the number of characters for the field when you create the field. By default it's 15 but you can set it to anything you want, as long as you remember to do this when you create the variable.
