Branch aware Quiz: Since version 8 Branch Aware has been added as Quiz feature. In this blog post I illustrate the behavior of this feature and the differences with a normal Quiz. You can also learn how to use Shared/Advanced actions to have a localized dashboard and score slide.
Intro A recent question on the forum (Duplicate Quizzing) and my plan to write an e-book dedicated to Captivate Quizzes is the reason for this post. Forum user wanted small quizzes in different...

In Captivate 8.0.1 color management has improved, but to find the proper work flow starting with an Adobe Color scheme (ase) created with Adobe Color and transforming it to a reusable Theme Colors palette is not that intuitive. If you want to learn about my way of handling this, have a look at my latest blog post:

IntroColor management in Adobe Captivate is improving slowly but steadily. Too bad: the Help documentation is not offering much explanation about color workflows at all. Have a look at what is...

Monday 13th of October, an important patch was released for Adobe Captivate 8, upgrading it to version 8.0.1.242. Do not believe it is only a minor patch, besides bug fixes it offers nice new features.
My first article about this new version, doesn't talk about 'what is new' but I tried to explain my work flow to avoid losing custom items (workspaces, effects, theme colors...) when upgrading. I hurried to publish it, because you have to read that before upgrading. Sorry, early adopters.
IntroToday an important patch for version 8 was released, to upgrade to version 8.0.1.242. Like with the update to 7 I wonder why this is not a full 8.1 or even 8.5 because there are not only a lot...

If you want to read about my favourite features in Captivate 8, based on first in-depth explorations, with two published movies showing the enhanced functionality of shared actions, shape buttons and customizing theme colors: http://blog.lilybiri.com/captivate-8-my-first-adventures
Review? Not really... Lot of well-known Captivate users have already blogged about the new features in version 8 of Captivate, released this week:  Michael Lund and Jim Leichliter are not the only...

Because this question pops up sometimes in the forums, I explained in this new blog post how you can create a Reset button for an individual knowledge question slide in Adobe Captivate. Work flow can be used in version 6 and later, because I used a shape button, only interactive objects that can be inserted on a question slide.
IntroNot a shared actions post this time (still busy with the third post), but a quick tip describing a work flow that I already posted multiple times on the Captivate forums. It is an answer to...

Yesterday the Adobe Captivate team released a patch for 7, which leads now to version 7.0.1.237. There will be a lot of noise about its compatibility with Mac's new OS (Mavericks) but the team added a lot of other cool new features. Because some of them are related to variables and advanced actions, where I feel some responsibility, I revived my old blog with a new post. For the other features and installation, have a look at the Captivate page, and their official blog. 
Intro Adobe just released an update to Captivate 7. There will be a lot of talk by the Mac-users because it will now again be functional on their updated 'Maverick' system. But there is a lot more...

Use of Theme Colors in Captivate 8? Bit mysterious, and I like exploring mysteries. Have a look at my conclusions in this post. Learn how those 10 colors are used in the default theme, how the 'tints' are created on the base colors, how you can apply them in learning interactions:

Yesterday I published an article about creating custom hotspot questions in Adobe Captivate 8. An inserted SWF shows two examples of custom hotspot questions with more functionality than the default questions of that type.

Because there are quite a lot of questions on the Captivate forums about the Drag and Drop interaction, I did write an article with three small tips about labeling, creation of a success message and the use of shared actions as object actions. Have a look at:

IntroSince Drag&Drop appeared, there are many questions on the forums about them. Although the wizard is an easy way to create quickly a simple interaction, once you explore its functionality more...

The traditional way for creating a custom button in Adobe Captivate is a bit cumbersome. Since version 6 you can turn any image into a shape button, that has a lot of advantages over normal buttons: timing for the rest of the project, use on master slides, question slides, score slides are possible for shape buttons but not for any other interactive object. In this blog post I give you a step-by-step tutorial to create such a shape button. 
IntroThis will be a short tip to explain how you can quickly turn an image into a shape button. I had to explain this already multiple times and wonder why this easy work flow seems to remain a...

Just posted an article, first in a sequence that explains how to use Shared Actions in #AdobeCaptivate. In this first article you'll find a step-by-step work flow to create your first shared action, with the commands Hide and Show. As a teaser for the next articles, you'll see a published movie where I used only Show/Hide shared actions for highlight boxes. 
IntroWondering about that title? It could be my motto: I'm not afraid to share whatever I discover about Captivate as faithful fans do know. Title is not about me, it has a different meaning. With...
