Creating a Screen with Multiple Lightboxes in Adobe Captivate 6

Creating interactive screens in Adobe Captivate 6 is fun and easy! You can use the new Interactions to add Accordions, Tabs, Process Circles, Timeline, Matrix, Glossary, etc. to your course screens. All you need to do is to add text, audio, and images to it and change the color scheme and theme of the interaction to match with your course look and feel.

What’s even more exciting is that now with the new Smart Shapes and Grouping feature, creating custom interactions has also become very easy. Let’s take a look at one such interaction:

In this interaction, I’ve used smart shapes to create the lightbox components, grouped the lightbox objects on the timeline, and then applied advanced actions to the groups. Watch this short video to learn more about it:

Have some cool ideas to create custom interactions?  Share it with me and I’ll help you build it in Captivate!

Happy captivating! :)

    You begin by saying “In the last lesson”… Where is the link for the last lesson? You are talking about something called a light box. For users unfamiliar with exactly what a light box is, it might be helpful to have a link to view the “last lesson” that is mentioned. 😉
