Join Anastasia McCune for an in-depth discussion in this video Controlling click boxes and buttons, part of Captivate Projects: Software Simulations.
…Click boxes and buttons are two really important objects that you…can use to add user interactivity and control to your Captivate projects.…In this lesson, we're going to take a quick look at…the available configuration options for the two types of objects.…We've already got a number of them in our project.…The were either added in we recorded.…Or added after the fact by going to the insert…menu then standard objects and then button or click box.…So I'm going to start by selecting the button on slide four.…So, there's three different types of buttons that are available in Captivate,…and you can see them here under the general area in the properties.…
We've got text button, transparent button, and image button.…So the text button is basically what you…see her,e some black text over a gray background.…And you can change the caption to say…whatever you want right here in this caption field.…Of course, you can also change the character that uses the font, and so on.…And you can also add in a shadow or a reflection to it if you'd like, as well.…
In this project-based course with Captivate expert Anastasia McCune, learn how to record software simulations for your company or elearning project with Captivate. Discover how to plan, record, format, and adjust interactions for your simulation—elements that will make the training more realistic and intuitive—and publish the simulation where students can reach it.
