    Interaction with Captivate within Presenter

    Berdan Level 1

      I have an interactive Captivate (swf) file that I'm trying to get to work in Presenter. I have imported the file (which works great stand-alone) amd checked the box in the "Manage Flash" option. However, Presenter ignores the interaction and plays the cp file straight through without stopping/waiting for the learner to click on the item to go ahead.


      Any ideas? Thanks.

          hi Berdan


          could you confirm which version of Captivate you used to produce the swf? If it is Captivate 5 or 5.5, then you would see this issue;


          the good news is that the next patch of Presenter (7.0.7) is due out shortly and you would be able to insert and control Captivate 5/5.5 swfs inserted onto slides.

            Indeed, probably your issue is due to the incompatibility between Captivate 5/5.5 that supports only ActionScript 3 and Presenter 7 that only supports ActionScript 2. We are waiting for a Presenter upgrade that will support AS3 as well.... since more than 1 year

              Adobe Presenter 7.07 was released last week in conjunction with Adobe Connect 8.1.2 as well as Captivate 5.5. All three now are AS3 based and fix this very complex issue.


              You can download the full Presenter 7.07 from the Adobe Presenter page...notice right side where there is a link for existing customers to download a trial version...just use your Presenter 7 license when asked:




              Adobe Connect 8.1.2 is being rolled out the next two weekends and on-premise customers can download the code here:



              Adobe Captivate 5.5 has been released for awhile and was the first to move to AS3. Now all are in sync. Suggest running all previous content in Presenter or Captivate and then uploading again. That would convert any AS2 issues to AS3.
