When Adobe Captivate 6 came out, I could appreciate some of the improvements. But overall, I didn't see anything ground breaking. There are some things I wanted then and that I still want now in the next version of Adobe Captivate.
- Ease of Use Improvements - I work with several instructional designers and they all seem to struggle with some aspects of Adobe Captivate and often need my assistance.
- Smart Attachment of Files - have you ever tried to attach a PDF to an Adobe Captivate project? It should be easy, but it's not.
- No Fading by Default - Objects are set to fade in and out by default. The problem is that this fading causes things to disappear or look funny at times. Don't do that by default!
- Newly placed objects should display for "rest of slide" by Default - Things disappear when you don't want them to...enough said.
- Rollover Caption Should have Click Option -I like the rollover text capabilities but some users prefer the click to show text explanation functionality. That should be an option...either rollover or click to see text.
- Advanced Actions Editor Improvements - The editor is often cumbersome to work with. When you need a lot of if/then statements, it can be difficult to navigate through them. Also, the UI is difficult and requires too many clicks to edit line items.
Are you an Adobe Captivate user? What's on your wish list?
