Captivate 6?  "Expanding" text boxes

Aug 7, 2012 1:54 PM

Does anyone know if CP6 or any widgets support text boxes that can expand like those in the articulate videos below?

    Hello,

     

    Welcome to Adobe Forums,

     

    In Captivate 6 there is no Expanding Text Boxes, although you can use "Interactions" and Rollover Slidelet (It will work when you hover the mouse)

     

    Thanks,

    Vikram

    Hello,

     

    You can use Rollover Slidelet, once your user hover the mouse on rollover area, you can show him your content (Text, Images and Videos).

     

    Note : When you insert Rollover Slidelet, a different timeline comes up for Slidelet, on that timeline you can insert Text Caption, Images and Video

     

    Interactions gives you option where you can add content (Text & Images) on different sections (Levels), once your user clicks on the section, your content will be displayed.

     

    Thanks,

    Vikram

    Unfortunately, the closest thing Captivate has at the moment to replicate something like the Storyline marker object is the slidelet object.  However, having watched the Storyline demo from your link, I'd have to say that Articulate has done this feature better than slidelets currently do.

     

    In Captivate, you should still be able to do something similar using interactive objects, captions, variables, and Effects applied to the caption.  However, in no way would adding objects via this workflow be anywhere as easy as adding Markers in Storyline currently are.
