Adobe Captivate 9 has numerous features to create interactive and effective custom eLearning courses. One of them is adding multiple states to an object.
In this blog, we are going to look at how to add multi states to an object.
First, open a blank project from the File menu.
Let’s name the shape as “Trend 1”.
Now, click on Use as Button checkbox in the Properties Panel.
Then, click on State View option under the Object State section.
In the left side of the panel you can see the default states of an object like Normal, Rollover and Down.
Then, add another state by right clicking on any of the states.
You can add a visited state by adding another state to the object. Click on OK.
Let’s change the color of visited state. To do so, click on the Fill option and select the color in the Properties panel. Repeat the same step for the rest of the buttons.
Then, click on Text option on the ribbon and select Text Caption from the drop down list.
Then add desired Text in the field and click on Exit State.
Now duplicate the Button and change the text as Trend 2.
Then, click on State View option in the Properties Panel and change the text in the Visited state.
Do the same as above two steps to add more buttons.
Then, select the first button and go to the Properties Panel. From On Successdrop down list choose the option as Change State
Then, select the second button. From the second down list select the SmartShape 2.
Follow the same steps for the rest of the buttons in the slide.
Finally, Preview the Project.
You can see the multiple states with the respective text when you click on the buttons.
In this way you can add multiple states to a single object to minimize your file size rather adding multiple objects to your project.
