Cp5 content with Text Animations not working with latest Flash Player version
There was an update to Flash Player on the 4th of November to version 10.1.102.64, which causes Captivate 5 SWFs with Text animations to either fail to run or show a black screen or show a white screen. We have been able to nail down the root cause for this issue. Meanwhile, couple of workarounds which can be used to overcome the issue are as follows:
1. Remove Text animations in your project and republish the project.
- You can find text animations easily using “Find And Replace” palette. Use Edit->Find And Replace to open “Find And Replace” palette.
- Then in “Search In” Combo Box on that palette, you need to select “Text Animation” and hit “Find All” button.
- The list box below will show all text animations. Selecting each element of list box will move you to the slide containing the text animation and select the text animation. You can then delete the text animations.
2. Or roll back to the previous version of Flash player on the computer that is playing Cp swf –
