Hi Paul, so if I want to avoid using a button (for aesthetic reasons), and stick to the highlighted part of a text to offer the URL-link, then how can I in that case also avoid that the current project continues? (I started using buttons just to get to that option '(dis)continue current project' but just a hyperlink is really what I want (what the user expects). Best regards, Wim.
Most cases you need some type of click object to pause the project on each slide. Otherwise, the project will just continue away in the background as users visit the URL. Try adding a click box to each slide. This will prevent slides from progressing to the next slide automatically.
Is text to text linking is possible in Captivate 2017?
Suppose I am at slide 4 and I want to give a link. When I will click that link it will take me to slide 2 and a particular line will be highlighted.
I have achieved this by using hyperlink and execute advanced actions
Is this a only way to do this ?
Hi Paul, am enjoying your tutorials. I have a question regarding the insertion of a document (10:32) as a hyperlink. If this doc is only available in my internal files, and if i link to it, will be it available to external viewers? Or would it be better to create a URL for this doc and then link to it? thanks!
Thanks for the tutorial. Unfortunately, simply linking the word "here" would not be considered a best practice. See this page about providing unique link text: https://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20-TECHS/H30.html
Paul is there a way to insert a hyperlink into a video demo captivate project? The types of media and interactions seem to be limited and I cannot find a way to enter hyperlinks or buttons that can allow users to click.
The intention of video demos is to create videos where interactive stuff couldn't be used.
However!...Once you record your video demo save it as a file to your desktop or wherever you like. Then create another regular Adobe Captivate project with all the interactive stuff you want including questions slides, knowledge checks slides with buttons and so on. Then import your video demo file as a single slide somewhere in your regular eLearning project. Users will get to watch it your video demos and then transition to other eLearning content by just progressing to the next slide. Just make sure your record your video demo at the same resolution as all your other eLearning content otherwise it will be weird.
To import a video demo into another Captivate project...
1. Click the *Insert* drop down menu
2. Select *CPVC Slide*
3. Navigate to where you saved your video demo and select it
4. Click *OPEN*
Hope that helps.
Great tutorial and overview as always Paul. Is it not possible to create a hyperlink (for text) in a multi-state view? Essentially, I want to add a hyperlink in only one of my states. I notice that the hyperlink button (under style) is not available under a specific state but is for the Normal state.
+Jason M. Herman That's correct. You can only attach hyperlinks to one state of an object, however in a paragraph of text you could make more than one hyperlink with different words linking to different links (if that helps).

As a child, there was a portrait in our family home in Paris that I always loved. Today, it’s known as Maya with Doll – but to me it was just a portrait of my mother, albeit a remarkable one. “Your grandfather was a painter,” she would say, whenever the subject of the canvas, one of many that hung around the house, came up in discussion. It was only when I began school, and whispers about my heritage started to follow me, that I realised what an understatement that was. My grandfather was far more than a painter. He was the defining figure of 20th-century art – and, as I would learn later from years of academic study, a true genius. It was a revelation that would shape the course of my life in many ways. When Picasso died – in 1973, the year before I was born – he left behind 45,000 works, not to mention personal objects and correspondence.
