Hi, I have a project that I've been working on that is 960 x 600. On some screens, my progress bar at the bottom gets cut off. I'd like to make it a little shorter to compensate for this. In Photoshop, I would just resize the canvas a little. It doesn't seem like Captivate has an option like that.
The best idea I can come up with is creating a new project with proper dimensions, creating new blank slides, and copying the content from the current project and pasting it into the new (smaller) project. Is that the best way?
It also occurs to me that the .htm file that Captivate creates leaves a this white border on the left and top of my project (7 pixels each direction). I wonder if I can get rid of that??
Luckily, my project is small, only seven slides.
Thanks for any advice!
You can get rid of the white border entirely by putting some CSS code into the HEAD of the Captivate HTM template used to publish your movie.
The code looks like this:
Place this code just before the </head> tag in the relevant template at: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Captivate 5\Templates\Publish
If you're not using SCORM, the template here is called standard.htm
If using SCORM, open the SCORM folder at this location and find your 1.2 or 2004 template.
That should give you an extra bit of room to play with and it looks a lot cleaner too when the movie goes edge to edge.
About resizing: it is possible to rescale the project if you can cope with some quality loss. If the new size is smaller you can choose also for crop instead of rescaling totally. The default playbar is about 19pixels in height. Is this option for rescaling not OK for you?
Well, this is the first of what will be many projects using the same "frame" and a couple of master slides. I'm developing a template, and want to get the native size correct, rather than downsizing when I publish it.
Thanks for the feedback.
