What is a Fluid Box
Download the Workbook – Getting Started with Fluid Boxes in Adobe Captivate 2017
A Fluid Box container expands the objects to fill available free space, or shrinks the objects to prevent overflow. Elements in a Fluid Box are direction-agnostic. The objects can adapt to the space available.

Using Fluid Box in Captivate
In Captivate, you can either insert a Fluid Box layout vertically or horizontally in a responsive project. Depending on the screen size, the objects in a Fluid Box container grow or shrink without compromising the screen width.
In the 2017 release of Adobe Captivate, there are two new items in the Objects menu bar.
- Horizontal Fluid Box layout
- Vertical Fluid Box layout

Thanks for all the good resources! I’m coming back to Captivate after some time away, and responsive design using fluid boxes is one of the newer features I’m not familiar with. The sample project (CloudAir SoftSkills) is particularly helpful; I like the use of multi-states to change the demeanor of the man and the position of the needle on the empathy meter (another feature that’s new to me!).
Shambu Nashi can you tell me at what point do items that we mark as optional get dropped from being displayed? In other words what is the determining factor?
Thanks Steve! Your idea on Microlearing & Fluid box looks interesting, curious to see how your module comes along – https://elearning.adobe.com/2017/04/microlearning-and-fluid-boxes/
