Per-slide progress bars for Adobe Captivate

Giving people a rough idea of how much time they’ve spent on each slide of an online training is something Adobe Captivate doesn’t have the ability to do. Fortunately, you can use smart shapes and motion paths to convey each slide’s duration and how much time people have spent viewing them.

You can download the Captivate 9 project file here.

  1. Hi — I just discovered your site from this video that was posted on LinkedIn. Very informative, and I look forward to reading more and watching more of your videos. I have one question about the layout of your Captivate workspace. How did you get that double row if info on the right side of the screen? You have one column with just Properties, and a second column with everything else – Timing, Library and Quiz, in the case of this specific video. It seems very useful. How did you do it? I already know how to set up a custom workspace, but not this part. Thanks.

  3. To grab a pallet and move it around you click and hold the top of the pallet where the name is and then you can drag it around the screen to position it anywhere you want. To dock multiple pallets together like I have on the right-side, you drag the pallet over another and a blue border will appear around the entire pallet indicating you’re going to dock them together. You can then grab the “tabs” to reorder them how you want. To position them side-by-side, like how I have the properties pallet, drag the pallet to the left or right side of another pallet. A blue bar will appear only on that side indicating you’re going to dock it there. =^ )
