Numbering and Bullets

Jan 23, 2012 9:14 AM

I hope this is an easy question and I am just an idiot for not fiquering it out on my own...


I am creating a CBT with Caprivate 5. When using Bullets or Numbering, I can not continue with the sequence on the next slide.




(Slide 1)


Types of Fish


1. Salt Water

     A. White Meat

           i. Cod

           ii. Cusk

          iii. Summer Flounder


     B. Light Meat

            i. Smelt

           ii. Whiting

          iii. Grouper


(Slide 2)


Types of Fish (cont)


     C. Dark Meat

            i. Eel

           ii. Carp

          iii. Pollock


Problem is slide 2 starts over as A instead of C.

Types of Fish (cont)


     A. Dark Meat

            i. Eel

           ii. Carp

          iii. Pollock



Anyone know what to do as I am manually fixing the numbering and it throws off the flow.

    If these lists are on separate captions, let alone separate slides, Captivate would naturally assume that they don't belong to the same list order.


    Your method of hardcoding in the numbering is the only way I know to do it.


    Once you've set up the numbering though, it should look fine.  It's only a bit of extra work when creating the content, isn't it?

    You could do the numbering in Word then copy and paste into Captivate. I haven't checked that though.


    But why do you want to format your content this way? What benefit are you trying to achieve?

    Well, that's a start. I'm not sure I can think of a better way to get content like that in to Captivate.


    On the wider issue, I don't want to start second guessing your choices for the delivery methods for your courses, but are you sure Captivate or even elearning is the best method for this content?


    elearning generally doesn't really work that well for that kind of large scale information. My preference would be a good old pdf or html help document.


    If you're using Captivate because you need to test you could always put the information in the pdf and just have the quiz in Captivate.


    I'm not criticising your choice by the way; I don't know the background about the project. Just offering a different perspective
