    @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.

    @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.

    You aren’t by any chance storing the Lectora project on a networked drive? Trivantis doesn’t support that, the files must be on local storage to get a consistent result.

    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.

    If I understand the question correctly, I believe you could do what you want using xAPI.

    I don’t have access to an xAPI-enabled LMS and have never tested it, but that sort of name:value pair seems to be what xAPI is for.

    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.

    If you have sufficient RAM you can just  leave Audacity open all the time, making it the work of seconds to edit a small file.

    There are occasional problems in Lectora in which the XML code in the AWT file gets screwed up (for instance, duplicate entries). This can sometimes be fixed, as you did, by deleting an object and making a new one.

    If you’re brave and familiar with XML, you could edit the AWT file directly. I do not recommend this unless you’re very confident, and if you do end up doing it, back up everything first.

    The process for adding hyperlinks seems quite fickle and troublesome.

    I never use the text hyperlinks. They are finicky (as you say) and sometimes hard to click on, because Lectora (and web browsers) treat the blank spaces between words and lines as null, which is irritating.

    I just use invisible buttons, as Adam suggested.

    Are you by any chance using 17.1? My first instinct is to say, “Try 17.0.6.” That’s the last really stable version. Also if you are using Seamless Play, try publishing without it. It does not actually work.

    I’ve implemented something similar by just having a one-question test, with correct answer “I agree” and incorrect answer “I do not agree.” If they fail the test, they aren’t compliant and their managers are directed to follow up.
