Enhanced next buttons

Simplifying the navigation of an online training helps user engagement. Requiring users to view an entire slide before the ‘Next’ button appears, which allows them to progress, is a common practice. But if they return to review a slide, having to wait until the end of a slide again for the Next button to appear can leave users regretting their decision to review. Fortunately, you can implement an enhanced Next button in Adobe Captivate that once it appears will automatically remain on the slide.

This tutorial uses the CpExtra plugin from Infosemantics. You can view more about the plugin from their website here.

Even though I’m using headerless loading of the CpExtra plugin, which means the plugin is added when I publish the file, you can still see how the file is setup by download the Captivate 9 project file here.

  1. Thanks for this great tutorial. I love the CpExtra widget with all its multiple features which are not only fixing several annoying limitations of Captivate but extending its functionality for advanced users. You posted a very useful example, using both the @syntax, the possibility to add time-based events and to launch an advanced action!
