    @CarlFink

    Back in 2016 I mentioned this to your developers, and I have also posted it here. We eLearning creators do not need hundreds of lines of the form:

    (The above is only a fraction of the actual output from printing one very short course, consisting mostly of a 20-question test.)

    Note that all those Creating Documents … lines are the same literally every time one publishes. They have zero informational value. Mind you, the ones that just boil down to “I converted an image into a different format” are also surprisingly useless to anyone.

    What that giant string of zero-information fluff does is make it hard to locate any actual warnings or errors.

    Suppress it. If you will need it for debugging (although this never actually happens), have a checkbox so I can turn it on when Support requests it.

    Thanks.

    It’s enormously difficult to get any non-standard service from our IS department, and I am a local admin on this laptop in any case.

    It’s probably easier for me to continue just using File >> Open. I just wondered if others were experiencing similar problems. Thanks.

    When do you want the text and graphic to be removed? When the mouse moves off the hotspot? If so the action attaches to the hotspot, and it’s the OnMouseExit action that would trigger the Hide action.

    Andrew, Lectora lets you set the “Return to last visited page” thing within the actual course, instead of using the SCORM API to find that page. It’s generally easier–if you can do it that way I recommend it.

    @Marcel, to handle multiple clicks you could have an action that increments a variable. Say the button is named “My_Button”, you could create a variable “My_Button_Status” with initial value zero, and an action OnMouseClick that increments My_Button_Status (raises the value by one) for each click. There would be a condition that when the value is two, instead of increasing it again, it does the Go to Next Page action.

    I would also have an EnterPage action to reset My_Button_Status to zero, in case the student navigates back to the page.

    I like that idea myself.

    Protocol question: I thought we were supposed to “thumbs-up” the suggestions we like?

    Expanding on Adam’s correct statements:

    Aside from media (audio/video) there is not much to pause on a page besides animations/transitions. I don’t believe it’s possible to pause the stock transitions, but you’d rarely need to. If you are using timers to make things happen, mention that and we’ll come up with solution (if possible).

    To refresh a page without leaving, you can just navigate to a blank page and have that page immediately (onShow) GoTo Last Visited Page. Put the blank page after the last navigable page of your course so it doesn’t come up in sequence. I made mine consist of a “loading” graphic, so the user sees a load screen for a fraction of a second, then the original page reloads.

    We have the same issue with the Success Factors LMS. You might try variations on the package type (e. g. AICC). That’s worse–sending question data using SCORM can crash the LMS on the server, or used to.

    You can turn on debugging (or use Wireshark or another Ethernet recorder) to show your vendor that yes, your course is sending the information, they’re just ignoring it.

    @steven: I suspect you are now a beta tester. Not on purpose, just that Trivantis clearly didn’t finish testing 18.1 before pushing it out.

    I just had a related experience with a different vendor. They said that the question data wasn’t available for courses done in Lectora. When I demonstrated that yes, my SCORM-packaged course was sending question data and that it could be recorded (by doing that in another LMS), the real story came out: the vendor has pregenerated reports for iSpring-created tests and didn’t want to recreate them. I gather that iSpring uses some kind of proprietary format or data that Lectora does not.

    That message is displayed if JavaScript is present “guarding” against closing the window. Specifically, it’s “window.onbeforeunload = function() {/*Do something*/}”

    If you’re getting it on page navigation, though, that’s weird.

    @rjang.5151, by design you can’t autoplay video on mobile without that one tap/click prompt. That’s the browser design, and browser writers will block every way to do so, once they become aware of it.

    The only way to work around it, I believe, would be for Trivantis to make their own “Learning Player App” (for both iOS and Android). I don’t expect them to do that, and it would be a bad idea in my opinion, but it would work.

    This is maybe too obvious, but I’ve had that issue (if I understand you right) because Lectora spontaneously changed the size of the text block containing the question, so that it covered the top option (which thus could not be clicked). This happens because Lectora does not necessarily display exactly the same font in a browser that we see in the development environment.

    And I agree with both Tim and Mallow. The system mallow76 describes is, in fact, exactly what I’ve done in the past and it works well.

    SWF can be used in 17, but it won’t be generated by Lectora. You can embed a SWF from another source if you insist, but modern web browsers will mostly then refused to play them, so don’t.
