Captivate Course Starters


Our Course Starters use breakpoint mode in Captivate.

After working with—and growing to really appreciate—fluid boxes, we found that our development time wasn’t where we wanted it and our users reported similar findings. 

We reverted back to the familiar breakpoint mode—allowing you to target specific object positions or even slide layouts based on device dimension.

We also use a javascript portrait blocker to display a “rotate this device” message whenever a slide is being viewed in a portrait orientation. This allows you to control the display of interactions more specifically than you otherwise might be able to by simply rearranging elements based on a specific breakpoint dimension. Those “in-between” sizes can sometimes be a real chore to target, but this approach avoids that issue altogether. You can easily disable this feature by deleting two objects from the timeline.
