    Its something in the latest Flash player that causes this. On a lot of peoples computers ( mine included ) Windows will update this automatically. You however can disable/delete/deactivate the specific update and ensure it will not auto-update tomorrow allover again.
    Follow the steps below to get this done:
    Windows 10

    1. Right-click the Start button and select Programs and Features.
    2. Click View installed updates on the left side of the window that appears.
    3. Use the search field in the upper right corner to find KB3132372.
    4. Select Security Update for Microsoft Windows (KB3132372) in the search results, then click Uninstall on the toolbar above it.
    5. Click Yes to confirm that you want to uninstall the update, then restart your computer.

    To prevent Windows 10 from automatically reinstalling the problematic update, install Microsoft’s Show or Hide Updates troubleshooter and use it to hide KB3132372.
    Windows 8

    1. Right-click the Start button and select Programs and Features. If you don’t have a Start button, right-click the lower left corner of your screen or press Windows Key+X, then select Programs and Features.
    2. Click View installed updates on the left side of the window that appears.
    3. Use the search field in the upper right corner to find KB3132372.
    4. Select Security Update for Microsoft Windows (KB3132372) in the search results, then click Uninstall on the toolbar above it.
    5. Click Yes to confirm that you want to uninstall the update, then restart your computer.

    To prevent Windows 8 from automatically reinstalling the problematic update:

    1. Right-click the Start button and select Control Panel. If you don’t have a Start button, right-click the lower left corner of your screen or press Windows Key+X, then select Control Panel.
    2. Use the search field in the upper right corner to find Check for updates, then click it in the search results.
    3. When Windows has identified updates available for your computer, click important updates are available.
    4. Scroll through the list of updates until you find security update KB3132372.
    5. Right-click the update and select Hide update, then close the control panel.

    Windows 7 or Windows Vista

    1. Run the Flash Player Uninstaller to remove the current version from your system.
    2. Download and extract Flash Player archive 20.0.0.228 on your computer.
    3. Open the fp_20.0.0.228_archive folder, then open the 20_0_d0_228 folder.
    4. Right-click flashplayer20_0d0_228_winax.exe and select Run as administrator.
    5. Follow the prompts to complete the installation. When you get to the step that asks if you want to automatically install new updates, mark the option to Notify me to install updates. This will prevent the problematic update from reinstalling itself.
    6. Reboot your computer and test your software again.Good luck

    Yes you can.

    Create a variable… you can construct that one anyway you want / need..

    Say in the end that is… variable myURL = “http://mywebpage.com”

    In the action ‘Go to WebAdress’ you add it like this: VAR(myURL)

    And next to the things Tim mentioned there is quite a difference in using Javascript in Lectora Online compared to Lectora 16/17. I dont know yet whether Lectora 18 is similar ( i do expect that it will be ) to the way Lectora Online handles HTMLnames etc. for custom scripting. Will do some tests with that as soon as possible.

    Seamless play also dumps all pages into a separate iframe, so targetting elements on a page is quite different then too.
    If you check my shared content you for sure find samples where i explain the differences better.

    Often just describing an issue i run into, pops an idea in my brain how to fix the issue at hand. Again this time.

    So i had a textfield. Reading the text with Javascript in the described methods above resulted in extra linebreaks i wanted to avoid. Well reading it like this fixes that.

    var text2Use =””;
    var textSpans = document.getElementById(“text9482”).getElementsByTagName(“span”);
    for (var i = 0, l = textSpans.length; i < l; i++) {
    if(textSpans[i].textContent || textSpans[i].innerText != undefined){
    text2Use += textSpans[i].textContent || textSpans[i].innerText;
    }else{};

    Basically i loop through the Lectora generated spans in the Html and combine them into a new String to use…

    Hi Tanya,

    Last evening mocked up sort of a sample showing 2 methods of how to do this in Lectora Online.
    One option is disabling your button(s)/element(s) in the interactivity/exercise after doing it once..the other is using conditions on it. Showing both in this package. Whether one of those fits your scenario i cannot say for certain. If not, i would need a sample of your setup in Lectora Online too, to check whether conditions or some other method is valid to get it to do what you want.

    Well here it is.. 😉
    Kind regards and enjoy your day,
    Math

    All Wendy says is true. Flash/swf is just an extra media asset you can add to a course. The output Lectora publishes always has been HTML. If you add a swf to the Lectora project, well then that page uses the flashplayer to display that content on publish. Thats probably also your problem with other peoples browsers and computers. When on some other computer the course doesnot function probably, my first guess would be that the flashplayer installed on that computer is an old one, not compatible with the published content.

    So as Wendy says, dont use Flash or SWF, its bound to give problems.

    You indeed can use tools to convert SWF to HTML5. If you create however new content that needs to animate you should try to find a solution with which you can immediately animate/create Flash-like content. Two paths to go i can think of now. Either use Javascript to create animated content. Greensocks GSAP library excels at that, and you can do anything you think/wish of. In fact its origins are in the Flash-world but they evolved to HTML5/Javascript.
    For just plain animations you can offcourse always use GIF. Another approach on animated content might be SVG animation. Has great possibilities due to being vector and you can include interactions, but can only be used in an external HTML element in Lectora. @lectora development team: Make SVG directly usable in Lectora including animation and interactivity possibilities, then you have a really BIG PLUS on all the competition!

    At the moment i am working on courses aimed at both beginners and more advanced users in the use of Javascript and animation in Lectora. When thats available i for sure will let it know here.

    If enough interest i will write a series of Lectora / Javascript tutorials to get started with. In fact im working on a series of game components that use a lot of js, so guess that would be a good choice.

    That doesnot work, because it zooms the complete screen and not only your edit-view. To keep interface elements available that is a must for a zoom function. So in my opinion a zoom functionality is essential.

    We all were newbies at some point. So dont worry. I added a awt here…
    https://community.trivantis.com/shared-content/calculator-with-maths-math/
    to get you started. Its far from complete…and i do notice some errors when previewing it…but the basics for how to add Javascript to a project are clear inthere…as a starting point to create your own calculator.

    After LUC2016 i gladly continue with it, improving it..and clarifying what you want/need.

    Kind regards,

    If i dont use a LMS, i dont protect it 😉

    If i wanted to, i could add a password-check in front of the course.

    Hi Tanya,
    Dont worry, no waste of time at all. I still learn too. Questions are good… answers not always 😉
    So im not quite sure whats going wrong on your side. Let me check my Lectora Online…. ah yes i do understand now.
    You can test and run a course in several ways in Lectora. Run Mode (F10), this runs the course in the editor. Use this only for basic testing. I actually seldom use this, mainly because CSS and Javascript get ignored in this mode, and i do use that a lot. I do think you tested it in Run Mode. I use Page Preview Mode (F9) all the time when testing..you can view a single page that way including all Javascripts and CSS etc. you added. Best way of checking a single page. If you however need to test transitions and multiple pages AND Javascript and CSS, well then you need to publish the complete title…review that one…either on a LMS or straight from Lectora.
    Kind regards,
    Math

    I get a lot of storyboards in PPT format. Then part of my work is to convert/import/change that into good Lectora titles. A few small tips and tricks for all Powerpoint-authors, that makes the life of those who have to create the .awt prettier.

    – Watch the margins on textblocks. PPT standard adds a big margin on  a textblock. You seldom want that in Lectora.
    – Do not use transparent gradients in the PPT. The gradients get converted to solid colored blocks, so your designer / developer needs to fix that.
    – All graphical formatting has to be possible. Eg. when coloring a bullet some color in PPT…the developer has to recreate that with CSS and Javascript because it aint standard in Lectora.

    Best approach would be..get in touch with your developer. Ask him for either a template or sample PPT, in which you can work. That way all ins and outs are setup properly and you can just do your part…

    Regards,

    Math

    Guess you know the answer. Using javascript 😉 And some library to get that done.

    Here is a sample i did quite a while ago about spritesheets. In it a character running. Several buttons below it. Among them 2, 1 to slowdown speed and 1 to make him run faster. Click multiple times to see the effect.

    Spritesheet setup in Lectora

    Similar technique(s) will work for video offcourse. As the Lectora mediaplayer is based upon the Mediaelement.

    http://www.mediaelementjs.com/

    It should be possible to enhance Lectoras mediaplayer with javascript or add existing Mediaelement plugins to a project. There is for example a plugin to give the player an extra button to set the playbackspeed.

    https://github.com/mediaelement/mediaelement-plugins/blob/master/docs/speed.md

    Sounds like a interesting option. I got no clue how to add a plugin to an existing mediaelement. HTML5 video has default the playbackRate property.

    https://www.w3schools.com/tags/av_prop_playbackrate.asp

     

    For audio you offcourse need something else.
    You could for example use this audio library.

    Fade audio in Lectora

    Checking the documentation for Buzz
    http://buzz.jaysalvat.com/documentation/sound/

    you quickly find that there is a speed property. So you can speedup/slowdown audio with Buzz.

    Set the playback speed where 1 is normal speed, 2 is double speed, etc.
    mySound.setSpeed(2);

    Enough said i guess. With Javascript you can 😉

    Kind regards,
    Math
