The first step to create good-looking eLearning content is to create good-looking course assets, and buttons are an integral part of it. So, let’s see how we can dress up Captivate buttons and make them look pretty! 🙂
A lot of button images come packaged with Adobe Captivate. But if you want to get creative in how the buttons should look like, here’s the way to go!
It’s just a three step process to add custom buttons to your courses:
Create button graphics in ‘x_up’, ‘x_over’ and ‘x_down’ states. You can have the same button saved with these three names, or you can change some properties of the image like color, effects, etc. and save it as different version.
Insert Image button in Captivate and browse to the button image you created.
Adjust the location and size of the button on the screen.
Here’s a screen full of custom buttons… I’ve used stock images from Fotolia to create these buttons.
Let me show you a demo on how I created the page curl button and then you can try the rest.
