Published on

Learning Devcamp 2015: In this session, you will learn how to effectively use Adobe Captivate master slides to easily create and maintain well-formatted and consistent-looking content that meets corporate guidelines. Object style is a set of visual attributes, such as color and font. You will also learn how to define styles and apply them to selected objects for quick and consistent formatting across a project. I’ll also provide lessons learned and real-world project examples.

S226 adobe captivate – all about styles and master slides richards

  1. 1. Debbie Richards
  2. 2. You’re in the middle of developing a Captivate project and you think to yourself “Boy, it sure would be nice to have my company logo appear on all of the slides. And maybe a footer at the bottom of each slide that displays the course title.”
  3. 3. Helps create a consistent look quickly. Great for including common objects such as images and background colors. Can have regular objects and placeholder objects. Masters are applied to individual slides in the properties panel.
  4. 4.  The main master slide is the first slide in the Master Slide panel.  The name of this slide is the same as the name of the theme.  Objects and background color of this master slide appear on all other master slides.  Each theme has one main master slide.
  5. 5.  Contains layouts and objects that you can use for content slides.  For example, a Title master slide can be used for the title of the project.  You can have multiple content masters for a project.
  6. 6. Each theme contains a separate master slide for the following question types:  Matching  Hot spot  Likert  Other question types: multiple choice, fill-in- the-blank, true-false question, short answer, and sequence questions  Result slide Each question master slide contains placeholder questions, answers, and captions with the style related to the theme.
  7. 7. A Theme file has the file extension .CPTM. It is a convenient way to quickly load items such as master slides player bar styles captions styles button styles and a few other items to your project. Note: when you apply a theme, all overrides to object styles and properties will be lost.
  8. 8. Choose from a bunch of out-of-the-box responsive themes to render differentiated content for multiple devices. You can customize these themes to meet your requirements, or create your own themes. You can also save these themes for reuse across projects.
  9. 9. You can choose the Preset Theme Colors or customize Theme Colors to make your own color schemes.

  11. 11. You are part of a team of developers who are working together to create a massive amount of simulations for a major project. The look and feel of everyone’s simulations should be the same.
  12. 12. Templates help you achieve a uniform look-and-feel for all your projects. They also help you and your co-authors save time during authoring by letting you focus on content rather than the aesthetics of the project.
  13. 13.  Used to ensure that projects are set to a specific size and contain specific objects in specific locations.  Use a “cptl” extension  Using templates in Adobe Captivate, you can create standard:  Sizes for projects. The size specified for a template is taken as the default size for all projects that are based on the template.  Sizes for objects such as images and videos within the project.  The templates can contain the actual object itself or a placeholder for the object. If there are placeholders, the content developers insert the actual object at the time of authoring. The objects are resized to the size of the placeholders.  Set of preferences for projects, recording, and quizzes.  Skins—TOCs and playback controls—for project outputs.
  14. 14.  With Templates files you can build out the initial structure of a course and use this as the base of your new projects, where a theme file basically provides you only with Master Slides, Player Bar styles, etc.
