Intro

At the Adobe Learning Summit (Las Vegas – 24 October 2017) I was invited to present a session about the Timeline for advanced workflows. It is one of my favorite subjects (bit below my most preferred topic ‘Advanced/Shared actions’) because I see so many questions on the forum that are due to not or misunderstanding the Timeline functionality.

Tutorial

For those users who were not able to attend ALS2017, I converted my Captivate presentation into a self-paced learning tutorial.

It has been published as Scalable HTML5 project. Autoplay is turned off (not allowed in some OS), just click the triangle button to start the movie (with narration). You can watch it directly on any device from this link

The tutorial has at its end links to different published movies, examples using the described features of the Timeline. Several features are used in the movie itself: skipping audio on the dashboard (second slide) on later visits, Delay commands for automatically building lists on different slides. Be sure to use the circular button at the bottom to show the value of the system variable cpInfoCurrentFrame, to discover (some of) my secrets.

Feedback

I would appreciate feedback and welcome questions. Are you interested in learning more about the examples? Are the mysteries not totally clear to you? Please let me know… If you want a copy of the handouts created for this presentation, send a mail to info@lilybiri.com.

You’re welcome, Shelly. Find it so weird that I’m the only one ever talking about the Timeline which is at the base of all interactions in Captivate. My mind must be working in a strange way.

Thank you for creating the tutorial! You made me smile from ear to ear. Mysterious is one word for it. I will let you know when I am ready for advanced. Thank you again for the self-paced tool!
