    Using a 'tick' graphic instead of a text caption 'correct'

    DP_MC

      Still very new to Captivate - going through a trial version vrs5. Is there a way to substitute a tex caption in the standard quiz slide to bring up a tick graphic (or any other graphic) intsead of the standard caption slides, ie: incorrect/correct. I've been through the pdf but it is unclear whether this is possible.

          Hello,

           

          Recently I answered a similar question in the forum, but the search is not functional anymore, too bad!

           

          Trying to summarize:

          • no easy way to replace the captions by an image, or perhaps you could use a text symbol (for checkmark) and make it pretty big and only character in the caption
          • if you want a more fancy image, delete all the captions; this means that the normally two-step approach when the user submits an answer will be reduced to one step: when submitting the playhead will continue and when reaching the end of the slide it will go to the next slide; normally the captions appear and then pause the slide, waiting for the user to click on the stage again or to choose Y; if that is OK, you read further
          • insert your images Correct and Incorrect but set them to invisible (de-activate the option Visible in the General part of th Properties panel)
          • attach the action Show Correct asSuccess action (action part in the Properties panel)
          • attach the action Show Incorrect as Failure action (action part in the Properties panel)
          • those images will appear when the Submit button is clicked, watch the Pausing point in the timeline of the slide (mostly set at 1.5secs); increment the duration of the slide so that the user gets the time to watch the image; this will be the timeline portion after the pausing point
