    Lectora 18 is available for download!!!!!! Request your license key here.

    The primary new features in Lectora 18 include:

    • New, powerful templates make getting started with Lectora easier. These templates are focused on the following: basic linear navigation,  non-linear navigation, audio and video, to Pre-Test/Final Exam, accessibility, and interactive page samples.
    • Stock buttons have been improved to make them easier to use, and are showcased in the Buttons folder of the Stock Library. The new buttons are configurable, allowing the user to change the color and gradient behind a transparent button image.
    • Inspire includes Camtasia 2018 and Snagit 2019
    • Disable a tablet or phone (landscape or portrait) views to simplify Responsive Course Design.
    • HTML5-only publishes exclude any Flash fallback elements so there are no issues importing into your LMS.
    • Scale to Fit – for non-responsive (traditional) titles,  the standard desktop view will be scaled in every browser regardless of the device as long as either of the two existing publish scaling options are checked.
    • View the waveform for audio files when synchronizing events
    • HTML objects now include their Title Explorer object name as text
    • Limit the number of drag items per drop zone
    • The product license key on the Getting Started screen is now selectable and can be copied and pasted into a Support ticket to ensure accuracy.
    • The option to “Add Submit Button” for a question to trigger feedback had been only available when the question was initially created. It is now available after the question has been created and can be added in the question editor
    • When Use Web Accessibility Settings is checked, an option for focus color and width will now be enabled  and Publish for Seamless Play is now disabled.

    Plus a long list of bug fixes.

    For more information please visit the Release Notes and Known Issues

    Interested in seeing the new features before switching?  Join me for a webinar on November 14th.

    I think it’s a brave person indeed who upgrades and does production work with the .0 version.

    This sounds great, but unfortunately, there are many bugs in Lectora 18, which prevent working. So, the preview does not work. I have to save, close Lectora and restart to see any changes.

    Sounds like the never-ending story with new versions of Lectora…

    I don’t quite follow. Are you suggesting that we should just accept the poor quality testing because they can’t/won’t do any better?

    @approg…. cynical remarks hard to express in text 😉 No, i did mean… its always the same story with new releases of Lectora. Its really very very bad they cannot deliver a proper solid first version. I do love Lectora, but getting very worried about its future. Overhere in Europe Articulate360, Rise and Storyline win big time from Trivantis/Lectora just by user-amount. I dont prefer it, but i might have to swap only because its used more overhere.

    I feel Charlie Brown being offered a football to kick by Lucy with me thinking “Surely this time she won’t pull the ball away” but invariably she does.

    An essential difference to Charlies situation is that the ball she’s holding is fully intact …

    But there are games out there that don’t require two players just to kick a ball 😉

    I just had my PC reimaged, and the latest version of Lectora installed. Problem is that SnagIt isn’t working. The OneClick doesn’t open, the editor only opens if I go to the directory and actually open the executable for it, and it won’t take screenshots.

    I’m dead in the water here, and need help!

    Are you using v18?  If so, what operating system are you using? There is a problem with the new Snagit on Win7, which should be fixed in v18.0.1

    If  you’re on Win7, is it possible for you to reinstall?

    Normally, the correct route for software development is to:
    1. think of features to add
    2. design the features (UI, implementation…)
    3. add those features
    4. test the software fully, and finally
    5. release the software.

    and not

    1. think of features to add
    2. add those features
    3. release the software
    4. wait for people to complain
    5. fix bugs that proper testing would’ve picked up.

    I used to test software. It’s hard. Lectora is really complex. Not that I think the testing for, say, Seamless Play was adequate–it was not.

    Is there any chance to have full SVG Support (for example when using infographics or illustrations) in further Lectora versions?
