JavaScript that does not appear
JavaScript does not appear while you preview Adobe Captivate output.
If the Execute JavaScript option is selected as action in the Project End options of the Project Preferences dialog box
(Edit > Preferences > Project > Start and End (Windows) or Adobe Captivate > Preferences > Project > Start and End
(Mac OS)), Adobe Captivate may not display an error message when the JavaScript is previewed. This is because the
Show Borders option as set to On (enabled), by default. When this option is on, Adobe Captivate creates multiple SWF
files—skin SWF files and content SWF files.
To preview JavaScript, set the value of the Show Borders option to Off (disable it) in the Borders tab of the Skin Editor.
The Skin Editor
The Skin Editor shows the skin preview of the first slide of the project. The preview contains the background color of
the slide (if any) or the background image. You may experience performance issues when the skin preview shows the
background image because every setting in the Skin Editor dialog box is applied to the preview immediately. To avoid
this delay of preview update while editing a skin in the Skin Editor dialog box, you can insert a blank slide as the first
slide. Then open the Skin Editor dialog box and define all your skin configurations like playbar controls, positions
menu, and borders. After finalizing the skin configuration, you can hide the first slide (the blank slide inserted) and
open the Skin Editor dialog box again to preview the final changes. The skin preview will always show the first project
slide that is not hidden.
