In Cp4, I'm recording a screen where I click in a text box and type a first name. I click in a second text box and type a last name. When I run the demo it doesn't show me typing anything. Sometimes when I click on another button the word I typed suddenly appears. But it's not showing me type it.
When I run the same recording in training, I don't see any captions that say "click here and type Jane."
I thought in the demo it was supposed to record what I typed so the student could watch the typing as it happened. And then in the training file it allowed the student to click in the text box, showed a caption that said "type Jane", and allowed the student to type in the text box.
Is there a setting I'm missing or something?
You should probably double-check your settings before recording.
Specifically, click Edit > Preferences > Recording > Settings.
That area covers the Keystrokes. After you double-check that, click the Mode(s) and select the Assessment Simulation mode. If you want instructional text captions to be added, you will need to enable that option.
Once you make these changes you will need to re-record the sequence. Of course it's possible that even with the options enabled you won't see the objects added. Whether they are added is dependent upon Captivate understanding how to work with whatever application you are recording. On the up side of that, you are always free to add the Typing and Captions after the recording is complete.
