    I cannot reposition a slide

    SIM.ONE

      This is my first captivate project.  I have a 30 slide video-heavy prototype and I am trying to move one of the quiz slides from one point to another, further down the timeline. It will not go. Instead of opening a space close to where I am dragging the slide to, Captivate is opening the space closer to the beginning of the timeline, which does not help me.

       

      Oh, and when I first created that slide that I am now trying to move, I had my cursor on slide # 28. The new quiz slide was added as number 9. I deleted that slide several times and every time I tried to add it again, it was created closer to the beginning of the timeline.

       

      Has anyone seen this happening before?

       

      Captivate 6, Windows 7. Is there something else I am supposed to provide?

       

      Thank you in advance!

          Do not understand fully. Did you try with Copy/paste for that slide as well instead of dragging? This is a Quiz slide, is dragging getting it out of the Quiz scope (outside of the Quiz, after the score slide if you provided one?). What are your Quiz Preferences?

            Hi,

             

            I tried copy/cut and paste and that doesn’t work either. It creates a copy of the original slide, but close to it, not where I want it to be pasted to (and I placed the cursor on a slide close to the end of the timeline before pasting).

             

            I did not change any of the original quiz preferences. The quiz is not graded, it is a hot spot and I did not use a score slide.

             

            Thank you very much for your response.

              It must be linked to the Quiz, your problem. Try to insert a score slide (Quiz Preferences) and post a screenshot of the Quiz Preferences, please. Which version do you use exactly: 6.0.1.240 or 6.1.319 ?

                Hello

                 

                I just want to post an update here and also thank you for your prompt responses and attention to my problem. It seems like the “weird drag-and-drop behavior” was only happening with that specific Captivate file. We create another file using exactly the same parameters and features and everything is working just fine. Maybe a corrupted file? Who knows, I certainly don’t.

                 

                Thank you so much for your time.

                  Thanks for updating, so the file was corrupted I suppose. Could be a slide or even an object.
