Hopefully this is easy.
I'd like to have the Flash output published by Captivate 5 auto-scale to match the browser window it is playing in but standard output produces a fixed size player. Strangely, I did notice that output generated by Adobe Presenter does indeed scale automatically but I am not generating content from this app.
I have looked for settings to allow this but have not found them. Am I missing something?
How can I have the Captivate output scale to the size of browser window?
Yes, this is possible but there is no option available inside captivate. Open the published html file in notepad and look for swfobject tag.
Inside swf object tag replace @width and @height variables by 100%.
Save and close the html.
Now the swf output should play fit to browser visible area.

Thanks for posting.
Had a look but code is as follows...
var so = new SWFObject("filename.swf", "Captivate", "1126", "671", "10", "#CCCCCC");
The project size is 800 x 600 and these do not relate to the quoted numbers either directly or for the same aspect ratio.
Would I insert additional parameters here?
Hopefully this is correct - it seems to work.
new SWFObject("filename.swf", "Captivate", "1126", "671", "10", "#CCCCCC");
new SWFObject("filename.swf", "Captivate", "100%", "100%", "10", "#CCCCCC");
works to scale the project.
If this is not correct for some reason, please let mw know.
Also, the pub size was 800x600 so I am not sure where the numbers I replaced, come from.
Last post applies only when content is played locally, apparently.
When posted on web, it plays at very small size. It does scale smaller (seems to scale only for width) but will not fill Window.
Updated Firefox - just in case - to v3.6.14. No difference.
Any experience/ideas on this?
Here is the way to fix this across multiple (all?) browsers. Works well for us.
Thanks. Does that work for version 6 (I'm assuming it would, but is it necessary now with 6, given it has an 'auto scale' feature)? I'm assuming that checking the auto-scale feature will do the same thing.
You are correct about Version 6 working witht he auo-scale feature. This fix is for 5.5 and previous versions, but it works quite well.
You can do the same thing for playing within an LMS window you just need to modify the Default.htm file in either:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Captivate 5.5\Templates\Publish\SCORM\1_2
C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Captivate 5.5\Templates\Publish\SCORM\2004
Hope that helps.
Nice to see this has stayed alive and that there may be a common solution for Captivate prior to v6. I will have to try this out when I can but the project I required it for has been completed so it will be a low priority item now. Hopefully the info will help others!!
