Text Input/Output

The file you download is named Extract the contents. There should be four files inside. If you have Flash and know how to use it, two of them are the Flash source files. The other two are what you use with Captivate. On the slide where you wish to capture the input, click Insert > Animation... and insert the file named textInput.swf. On the slide where you wish to display what was captured earlier, click Insert > Animation... and insert the file named textOutput.swf. Don't forget that in Captivate 2 that sometimes after you insert a Flash animation such as these, that you need to click something in your Library panel so your menus will work. Sometimes after you insert Flash objects, the menus just flash momentarily and don't allow you to use them. Enjoy! Rick :)

There is no support. These are offered as is. I obtained them from a support forum post that seems to have since vanished.

Anyone have any ideas how to increase the size of the text boxes for input and response.

Input I have re0sized in Flash but Output doesn't want to be re-sized and fail to pick up the text
