Captivate hot spots not working - tips?
Feb 23, 2011
I can't seem to get my Captivate hotspots to work within Presenter. I've used hot spots before on older versions of Captivate/Articulate and they worked fine so I am not sure what is different now, or if I am forgetting something. I am using the hotspots within a Captivate movie to simulate user clicks within a software interface. When I view the interactions in Captivate they work as expected. As soon as I bring the Flash file into Presenter, the hotspot highlights appear, but the actual hotspot does not work and the cursor does not change on mouseover/slide does not pause. The slides just keep moving through without any pauses for the required mouse clicks.
I read in one of the old forums that you need to have all slides set to advance by user when adding a video with hotspot navigation. I tried this and my Flash file still advanced on its own.
In the Insert Flash Movie Settings, I have experimented with both advance when movie finished and advance when user clicks as well as synchronoze and play independently, but neither setting makes a difference.
Thanks for your help. -Lynda
