I am trying to record an Assessment Simulation in Full Screen
mode, in which the student is asked to use the Start button to get
to a Windows configuration item. Captivate displays the first slide
of the Windows Desktop but does not wait for the student to click
the start button. It also does not capture another slide if I
simply use the mouse to point to an item in the start menu.
Clicking on a Sart Menu item forces Captivate to capture a slide
but the assessment can easily get out o f synch. A submenu is not
always displayed, which makes it difficult to find the right
location on the screen to click the correct menu item.
If anyone has encountered this problem and knows of a
potential solution, please let me know. I have tried changing the
timing and transitions with no success. Thanks.
Sounds like you possibly need to supplement your automatic
captures with some manual captures here and there. Where you
normally mouse over something and a menu appears, you should press
Print Screen (assuming you haven't changed the default snapshot
keppress). As you have seen, Captivate doesn't recognize a change
on mouseover. Typically only changes after clicking or typing.
