Automatically minimizing the Table of Contents

Hi All


I am sort of new to Adobe Captivate 5.5 and I have inserted a Table of Contents into my project so the users can navigate through the slides.

I have inserted the TOC as an overlay style but when I preview my project and select a different slide to navigate to, the new slide plays automatically in the back ground and my TOC blocks some of the information out (I link having the alpha set to 100% and not transparent).


Is it possible to adjust a setting so that as soon as a new slide is selected in the TOC it minimizes again?


Thanks for your help!

    This is not currently an available option in Cp 5.5, but it's not a bad suggestion.  So I would recommend that you log it as an enhancement request with Adobe.

    That's correct.  What they do is look at how many people wanted something like this (judging by how many asked for it with enhancement requests) to decide whether or not it would be a popular new feature.


    It would be highly unusual for Adobe to make any promises about whether or not they will add your feature.


    Even it they DID decide to add it, you'd probably be waiting until the next release (Cp7) to see it.

    Hi Natasha,


    I have succcessfully applied this type of feature on my projects, with Cp4 and Cp5.5 respectively, and yet to test whether this will work also on the current version of Captivate.


    With a combination of some Javascript codes + widget this is indeed doable.


    I am not so tech-terms expert so kinda hard explaining things out. But I could definitely show you my sample.

    Hello Natasha


    Here is a demo I made to justify my claim that your query is achievable.
