I'd like my customer to click something in one of my lessons and play an audio file. If I attach the audio to a button that I'd like to play the sound, the sound plays by itself. What am I missing? I don't want the audio to play until the customer clicks.
Attach the audio to a success caption that is, in turn, hooked to the button. Make the success caption transparent. When your customer clicks the button, the success caption (which will be invisible) will appear and the sound will play. How's that for slick?
I'm a technical writer for CACI in northern Virginia. I will be learning RoboHelp for the first time starting with version 8. Because I essentially have to do this on my own, what manual is out there that would be best for a beginner starting with RoboHelp 8?
My RoboHelp 8 book should get you up and running quickly.
Adobe Captivate Question: Can I Change the Mouse Pointer?
I am writing to you because I just encountered a "problem" with Captivate and I was wondering if you could help me. We are working on some Adobe InDesign software simulation modules and Captivate isn't showing the correct mouse cursors on the mouse paths. This is especially crucial when dealing with Adobe applications that have such a wide array of mouse cursors for each one. Do you know if Adobe has published a set of "Adobe cursors" to use with Captivate? If not, would you recommend a way of working around it?
You can right-click the mouse pointer and change the cursor at any time. If the pointer type you need isn't available, you can create a CUR file using just about any image editing program (like Illustrator or Photoshop) and load the image you need.
Adobe Captivate Question: Is There A Better Way to Move On in a Text Entry Box?
I am creating a Captivate project and have inserted a text entry box. I cannot seem to figure out how to make it so that it moves on when my customer has typed in the field. I don't want them to have to press Enter or Tab or click anything. I just want it to move on when they have keyed the correct info. Is this possible?
