Anyone have a solution for this?
I called Adobe Sales yesterday, which transferred me to support, which said they would call me back in an hour, ...and didn't. I have not worked closely with Adobe's support before, but I would like an answer to this as it is a large piece of functionality that would be very useful to what we are trying to accomplish. I cannot see why this would not work as it is a Java application which Oracle lives in. :-)
Any advice would be great.
Welcome to our community, Zeb
At first, you really bowled me a wobbly with the description of "auto step functionality".
It's been my experience that Captivate's ability to properly recognize elements of an application are pretty much hit and miss. To be honest, I'm surprised that it does as well as it does. But that's with normal desktop applications. Toss in something that's browser based (as your situation seems to be) and I'm surprised it works at all.
I'm sort of stabbing in the dark here, as I'm not an application programmer. But I'd guess that what is happening is Captivate is only sensing an object in the browser and it has no idea as to how to interpret the fields and whatnot that make up the object.
I know it's a nice feature when it works. However, I do hope you are aware that you aren't limited to what Captivate gives you with this. You are totally able to insert your own Text Captions at any time on any slide by clicking Insert > Text Caption.
How's it going? Thanks for the heads up about Captivate. I can see how that would be an issue where it does not pick up on what is happening in Oracle. However, I do not understand this if it is mainly a standard Oracle application.
The part that would make this feature nice is that we have ~100 test scripts to go through and auto-steps this would make that a lot more simple. -given we will be printing these as well. :-)
I guess I will have to do it the ol' fashioned way: "I know it's a nice feature when it works. However, I do hope you are aware that you aren't limited to what Captivate gives you with this. You are totally able to insert your own Text Captions at any time on any slide by clicking Insert > Text Caption."
I am in the process of talking to Adobe support, ...if they would call me back. Anyone else have trouble with that?
Thanks for commenting, I appreciate it a lot. Have a good one!
