    Hello,

    My name is Edward. I’m currently evaluating a copy of Lectora Inspire 16. Computer version.  I have done a lot of training design and development work but most has been Instructor Led. So, I’m just a newbie at the e-Learning thing.

    While playing with the “Let’s Cook” sample course, I noticed that the intro plays but I cannot get it to stop. No clicks provide an advance to the next page. It could be that this was designed for tablet or phone use only. But since I’m new at it, I am assuming it’s something simple I’m missing.

    So, if you could help me understand this I’d really appreciate it. Most areas of the interface seem pretty easy to use, but I’m not yet familiar with all the interactions.

    So far, I am enjoying the software. I used MadCap Flare regularly for Technical Writing. The interface has some similarity which I like.

    Have a great weekend and hope to hear from you soon.

    Edward

    Hi Edward,

    Welcome to the community! It sounds to me like you have the old version of the Let’s Cook title. (If there is music at the beginning, then that is definitely the old version.) I was going to send you a link to the newer version, but unfortunately we’re having issues uploading it to the site at the moment. If you care to send me your email address via private message, I would be happy to send it to you via WeTransfer. To send a private message, click on my name to open my user profile. On top of the sheep graphic you will see a blue bar that says Follow and …  Mouse over the … and you should get a short menu that shows the Private Message option.

    Wendy

    I love having this community site and have gotten so much helpful info here from both Trivantis folks and just “regular” Lectora users (like I am), BUT I find this site SO confusing/difficult to use! For example (and I know I’ve done this before, but I can’t remember how), how can I follow and/or “friend” a particular person here? I went to his profile, but I didn’t see any kind of “Follow” button or “Friend” button. Maybe it’s staring me in the face and I’ll feel stupid when you tell me, but I’ll take that risk, lol! 😉

    Also, in IE11, the button for “liking” a post (to say that it was helpful and put the green ring around it) doesn’t show at all and in Chrome, it shows, but the icon is just a box (I thought it used to show a thumbs-up, but it doesn’t seem to anymore. I also can’t type reliably in this forum using IE11…it’s like it only sees some of my key strokes. I have to use Chrome to be able to type normally here.

    Thanks for any help!
    Laura

    We’re so glad to have you Laura (@tecocat)!  To add a friend or begin following someone you navigate to their profile and select the Friend and Follow options from the blue drop down menu (attaching a picture).  If the option isn’t there it means your already friends or following that member. I’ve notified the development team of the like button not showing in forums for people on IE.  Hopefully we’ll find a resolution soon.

    Really odd…today I saw the Follow button on that person’s profile page, but I *swear* it wasn’t there yesterday!

    At any rate, I guess I’m all set…unless those buttons disappear again! 😉

    If it does, can you send me a screenshot with information on what browser and version your using to jennifer.valley@trivantis.com?  I’d be happy to have our development team look at it.

    Welcome, Alexis!

    I started to send you a reply to your question about how to do that interactivity you were talking about (clicking on the three items before the Next button activates, etc.) but I realized it was going to be a looooong message and I had been working all day on Sunday and it was late and I needed to shut down for the day. Bottom line, though, is that you need to investigate actions and variables. Not sure how much you already know about variables, so not sure how much detail you need for a helpful response. Of course, by now, I’m sure that one of the “regulars” here has probably already stepped in with a response….

    One other thing I wanted to let you know… If you’re interested in joining a free Lectora user group that meets online quarterly, I chair the New England Lectora User Group (NELUG) and we’re always happy to have new members (you don’t actually have to be from New England to join). Our next meeting is coming up very soon (Wednesday, Feb. 17, from 4-6 ET), so, if you’re interested, go to our website (nelectorausers.com) and click the link on the left side to join NELUG. Then, when I send out the “Time to Register!” email later this week, you’ll be on distribution and can go back to our site and register for our next meeting (if you’re free and interested).

    Enjoy your new tool and hope to see you on the NELUG membership list soon! 🙂

    Laura

    Welcome to the Community, Alexis! If you are new to Lectora, I highly recommend checking out the Share section where you can download tons of examples that you can dig into and pick apart to understand how they work. When I was first learning to use Lectora, hands-on examples were my best teacher! There’s tons of great stuff in the Knowledge Base too. And of course, lot’s of great people here to help with specific questions. We look forward to getting to know you too! 🙂
