I can't get any joy in capturing my old PowerPoint
presentations so am rewriting them in Captivate - it's got to be
good for something... right??? Which brings to these few questions
from a newbie:
I can't find the timeline, which would greatly help in
synching my narrations with the text - I'm clicking the splitter
bar (even the top one!!!) but can't access it
How do I insert bullet-points into a presentation with
animations - bullet-points don't appear anywhere
How do I get my quiz scores to print out without an LMS
If I create a quiz how can I capture the names as well as the
scores without an LMS system
Sorry if any of these questions are lame but I would greatly
appreciate some help, I've been quite a few days trying to produce
something with this software and I'm hitting hurdles in every
direction... please help
In the "Edit" view of Captivate, select the View menu item
and make sure that "View Timeline" is ticked (shortcut = Ctrl Alt
Bullet points is a new one for me re the animation, but I
think the best route would be to create a text box with just one
bullet point in it (Transparent box would be best bet), then copy
that for however many bullets you need on the slide and align them
on the slide. Next is to use Text Animation for each point you are
trying to make and align them to the "Bullets". Use the timeline to
control entry and exit points per bullet and Text Animation.
Re the last two points, sorry, way out of my league, but good
Thank you jojolina I'd already tried that with no joy ('view
timeline') but many thanks nonetheless.
However, I'm now able to answer to my own quesiton and an
answer that although ashamed to explain to others, may help someone
in the future.
I'd somehow grabbed hold of the line (not the tab) seperating
the workspace from the timeline - and here's the warning - in
gabbing it, it collapsed and nothing you do will expand it again
unless you grab it and pull downwards.
Once again I'm embarrassed to admit it and how it caused so
much of a headache for so long but newbies like myself beware!!!
