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.

Just want to remember that the old location of my Adobe Captivate blog (Posterous) has closed down yesterday. Temporary I have converted all posts using Posthaven and the new location is http://blog.lilybiri.com

Just posted another article explaining a Adobe Captivate solution I worked out for a colleague: how to create a knowledge check (interpretation of technical drawings) so that each question has 3 possible attempts but the points scored will change: first attempt is worth 3 points, second attempt 2 points and last attempt 1 point. The score has not to be reported This cannot be done with the present default question slides (he needed a short answer and a hotspot version). So I created custom question slides, using Text Entry Boxes and Click Boxes. It is an interesting case because I managed to create a file that reused a limited set of variables all the time, and I could reduce the number of advanced actions to create and manage. Smart shapes and other objects, either on the master slide or timed for the rest of the project did help a lot. I thought this could be a useful example of the principles I explained in previous posts about managing actions and variables. Have a look:

Thanks for the invite, Christopher. For the other members: I'm more on Twitter as @Lilybiri (was listed in the Top 100 Must-Follow Education Technology) and have a blog that is popular with Adobe Captivate users on posterous.

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.

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.

Lot of 'fans' are worried about my Posterous blog, since the announcement of the death of Posterous by Twitter (they seem to kill everything they buy). I still do not have a definite solution, explain this more extensively in a new blog post... perhaps the last one. As usual I also offer the explanation of a not so complicated use case: how to create a button that toggles a sequence of photos. And I added an example of the new Hangman interaction as well. Feel free to explore and to comment.

For Adobe Captivate users, creating advanced actions,  I published a list with all possible events to trigger actions, with comments on use cases for each event. This is the last list, in previous articles I already provided lists with statements, with widgets and with system variables. You can find the link in this blog post.
