Based on experiences as Captivate trainer/consultant and as moderator on the Adobe forums, I published a blog about the main stumbling blocks for Captivate newbies: Themes, Quizzes, Timeline. That was quite a while ago, but my perception has not changed at all, maybe a fourth challenge could be added; using Fluid Boxes.
For Themes and Quizzes I have already posted a reference document, listing the URL’s of all the blog posts created for those topics. As promised, you’ll find here a similar document for the main Challenge: Captivate’s Timeline. Last week a comment appeared on one of the Timeline blogs from a Captivate developer who has been using the tool since version 4 (11 years ago) butt still ignored the effect of the pausing point on slide audio. I was not astonished at all, because that topic seems to be ‘avoided’ in most training manuals and books.
Download this document:
The pdf has 3 pages:
- First page has links to blogs and videos about the Timeline.
- Second page summarizes all possible shortcut keys for use on the Timeline.
- Last page shows the color codes for timelines.
I really hope to be able again to present a webinar or a live presentation about this topic. One of the listed tutorials is a converted presentation which I offered in 2017 and 2018 at Adobe summits.
