    multiple error options

    webacity Level 1
      It seems Captivate only gives an single error option.
      Is it possible to have different error messages depending on which solution they chose. This way I can explain to t student the reason why the solution they chose is incorrect. Currently, if they get a solution wrong, you seem to only get one caption, which is the default error caption.

          Add multiple clickboxes that branch to different feedback.

            Hi all

            In addition to what fellow Adobe Community Expert Steve offered, I'll toss this out. If you enable more than a single attempt at the question, you may see up to a total of three different feedback captions added. One for each failure level up to a total of three. But I'm thinking Steve's answer is better here. It sounds like you are wanting more than that.

            Note also that if you choose the Multiple Choice question type, you may branch accordingly for each answer. Just click the Advanced... button and choose the action. You may use a different action for each answer.

            Cheers... Rick
