Publishing in Captivate 7: Flash vs HTML5

Having created our new Captivate 7 eLearning Template for both Flash and HTML5 outputs, I learned that there’s a pretty broad gap between what you can publish for HTML5 and what you can publish for Flash using Captivate.

So I thought I’d break it down in this handy table for those who may be wondering.  I don’t claim that this is a comprehensive breakdown of every last difference, but it is a fairly detailed one, and one I intend to keep updating as I learn more.  I hope it’s helpful.

If you run into anything I’m missing here, please let me know!  I’d be happy to add it so we can have a nice comprehensive list.

Much obliged,

-Dustin.

No, but these do work in CP6, so this is likely a bug that will be fixed.
