The new look Captivate forum


Many of you might not be aware of one of the most valuable online resources Captivate has- the Captivate Forum on Adobe.com. This forum is supported by a community of passionate Captivate experts who respond to every conceivable issue and problem you might run into. Many of them have been involved with this product for much longer than the current development team, and have contributed significantly to this product’s growth.
This forum has now been revamped with a much cooler UI, new features and an overhaul of the underlying technology to improve overall user experience.

Some of the changes include:

  • Improved search: Search the entire collection of forums using wildcards, fuzzy search, proximity search, weighted search, and Boolean search via the powerful new search functionality. You can also limit your search to the title, body, or attachment.
  • E-mail connection: Receive messages directly in your e-mail inbox by subscribing to forums or threads of interest. You can even post messages by replying from your e-mail program.
  • RSS support: Subscribe to RSS feeds on your favorite forums.
  • Rich text editor: Use the rich text editor to create posts, add attachments, and embed images. (you can now attach Cp movies showing the issue or the steps to be followed to fix something)
  • Ability to get noticed: Earn points through participation that demonstrate your expertise in the community.

I would like to give a shout out to rick, larry, joe, marc, eric, steve, john, frank and the rest of the community experts and thank them for their contributions. So the next time you have a Captivate or eLearning Suite related question go right to the forum.

    Has anyone here figured how to get the “quiz” function to reset if I have the user return to a quiz question to retake it? I have tried having them navigate to a spot before the question slide, in the question slide, have enabled back and review, and nothing seems to work. From reading various posts, it seems to be a common issue. Any help would be appreciated.
