    interactive flash files

    dmkorpal
      First off , I am a brand new user to Captivate.... :)

      I want to import a different type of interaction or quiz via Flash into a captivate session. I can import the file but it seems that I am limited to import Flash files as a movie or animation. The animation option limits the time that they are displayed at for example, the default is 3 seconds. I can increase this to a long amount of time which would give the user plenty of time to interact with this, but:

      Is there a way that it can be import <b>without</b> this display time definition?

      Thanks for your input.

          To my knowledge, "No". When the animation is inserted into Captivate it becomes just another "object" and - aside from the fact that Captivate Deux allows you to change the default display time for the slide (Project > Preferences > Defaults) - it will not automatically "expand" a slide (or object) to match the time it takes to completely "play through" when still in Flash. Sorry.

            Perhaps what you're looking for is "Display for rest of slide," or the "Display for rest of project" setting.

            I insert custom Flash animations quite often, and that generally works for me.

            Double-click the animation object, click on the "Options" tab, and in the Timing section, change "Display for:" to the option of your choice.
