I’m using Lectora 16.2 and throughout my course I have had to place images inside text boxes, e.g. a button/icon image when instructing a learner to “click the ?? button to add a new row”. I haven’t found a way to avoid this or any better way of inserting the image at the correct place in a sentence.
Now I’m importing translated content into the file, and the text boxes are pushing the image to the very beginning of the text box, and the display of the page is compromised when I publish the file (i.e. the page is either completely blank or displays only partially on publish).
Has anyone experienced this and found a solution? Any advice would be appreciated.
I remember that being an issue back when I helped do translations. Agree on having to replace the image back into the line. Could the page corruption be due to special characters in the Title Explorer?
Yes Tim, that is exactly what happened, which is how I saw the pattern. Every page that was failing had images that had been thrown to the very start of the page. I suppose it is unavoidable because the image is getting in the way of the translation.
There is always some tidy up after translation anyway, and apart from that, I’ve been really happy with how well the translation tool worked.
I think the issue occurs because Lectora only exports the text from the textfield. On import it removes the text from the box, the span with the image becomes first, then the new text is inserted after that. Maybe it’s possible to add a placeholder for the image in the exported text during export that the translators can move around to mark the position of the image.
I usually have four blanks in the text, two before and two after the image. The translators can move this gap in the translated text so I can see where to reinsert the icon during QA.
