Static Bookmarks in New Captivate: Workflow

This workflow explains step-by-step the setup of the instance venture which is revealed beneath this hyperlink

Bug warning

Once you open a venture which has a slide video slide the place the video length is longer than the default 3 seconds length of the video placeholder, the time ruler will disappear and get replaced by an emoticon:

Fortunately it’s straightforward to resolve, simply transfer the zoom slider and the time ruler will reappear:

Step 1: Create bookmarks

If the precise time for the bookmark, you possibly can transfer the play head close to that point. For a video I like to recommend to make use of the Play button to get the precise timing. Pause/play utilizing the area bar as toggle continues to be potential, however not all the time in a constant approach.

Click on the bookmark bar to insert a bookmark which seems like a black diamond. I strongly suggest to switch the generative title by a customized one which is able to make it simpler to search out the goal bookmarks. Simply double-click the proposed title and edit it. On this screenshot you see a bookmark close to the beginning of the slide, which will probably be used to create a Replay button:

Beware: it will probably occur that whereas modifying the title that the main focus switches from the Properties to the Interactions. In that panel it seems such as you forgot to outline an interplay for the bookmark. It is a bit complicated as a result of it seems like ‘lacking’. Nevertheless a bookmark used as goal for micro-navigation doesn’t want an interplay. The interplay panel reveals all of the bookmarks on a slide (bookmarks belong to the group of Slide occasions) with their timing.

It’s potential to maneuver a bookmark by dragging. You possibly can delete a bookmark utilizing the right-click menu.

Step 2: navigation buttons

On prime of the video slide I added 3 buttons (it’s the most in New Captivate inside one interactive element). The button capabilities as set off for the motion ‘Bounce to bookmark xxxx’. Right here is an instance screenshot for Button ‘Second’:

The Replay button will get again to a bookmark firstly of the slide:

The Steps slide with the reasons has 5 bookmarks:

As you can learn within the situation, I meant to have ‘Bounce to Bookmark’ as goal bookmark from the video slide. However at this second that’s not working. The bounce is changed purchase Go to Earlier slide.  I hope this will probably be fastened quickly.

It’s possible you’ll surprise why there’s a fifth bookmark on the finish?  Its motion is ‘Go to Subsequent Slide’ to mimick the sleek transition to the following slide which was typical for all earlier variations. Utilizing the On Exit slide occasion is just not working. I’m not the one consumer to have discovered this workaround. Personallty I by no means have preferred the PPT-like presentation playbar.

The opposite 4 bookmarks are utilizing the body occasion to set off an interplay. On this first half I limit to the bookmarks of their authentic which means: as navigation targets.

Benefit of New Captivate: you should utilize bookmarks on all content material slides besides quiz slides.

For Traditional Captivate bookmarks are restricted to slides with Slide video.  For different slides you want ‘micro-navigation’. Subsequent weblog put up will clarify the workaround by changing the identical situation. I’ll present the shared actions to mimick the bookmark navigation on non-video slides.
