I work on P.C.  I downloaded Builder 3.4 today Sat 1/25.  I am having same problem in 3.4 as Clint.  When working in Design I have a couple pages that just lock up.  I can't even get out of Builder without Task Manager.  The pages have several elements with simple linear transition so I thought I would try deleting a few elements.  The program will not even let me delete an element but locks up listing a problem with database.

There is no way to edit and try to adjust the page to play appropriately.  I really need a fix for this.
Answer
We are fixing this and an update will be released shortly.

Please allow scaling of the dialog (at least vertically). When there are lots of actions it is hard to read.

When I zoom in under Design, there is no scrollbars. This makes zoom rather disfunctional, since I can only see, what's in the middle of the screen.

I'm working on an iMac with Mavericks.

Is it supposed to be like that, or is it a bug?
Answer
There aren't any scrollbars but in the right corner beside the  zoom in/out spyglasses there is a cross like icon that let's you drag across the screen as shown in the attached image:

I'd like to have a countdown of the number of interactions on the page, so that the user knows to keep searching if they haven't found them all. Any suggestions for the simplest way to do this?

I want there to be a sound attached to the interaction as well, but only once, if they tap the interaction for a second time I don't want it to count down or make a noise.

This stuff is so hard to describe, let me know if I need to be more clear.

HUGE THANKS!!!!
Answer
You can add a counter with two behaviors chained: Counter Set ( with value equal to number of interaction also Invoked on Page load) and chained to this one a Counter Display. Also for every interaction you can have Counter Substract, so the user knows how many interaction remained.
To have a sound play only one you can have a transparent element show after the interaction occurs. So if you have Tap-PlayAudio, chained to this behavior will be a Show behavior with the target being that transparent element. ( That transparent element will be hidden at the start of the page and it will be on top of the element that is causing an interaction.)

Hi! I want to have a page that is only available for parents and teachers. It's my Privacy Disclosure page. What I currently am trying to set up is a text element on page 2 that jumps to a page that is at the end of the app, that is my Privacy Disclosure page. I don't want this page visible at run time unless the adult wants to view it. I also want the adult to be able to tap the closed and return to page 2.
Is this possible? So far it's not working. I also have the second to last page (page 11) as closing the app. And is that possible to do with the hidden page built right after it?
Answer
Hi Jamie,
You can jump to any page and close the app from any page using the Jump behavior (in the "Page" behavior category). In the "Target Page" field you can enter any page, or you can select "Close App."

So the text element that goes to the privacy disclosure page can have a Tap-Jump action set with the target page set to page 12, and the element on page 11 that is meant to close the app can have a Tap-Jump action set with a target page of "Close App."

Would you please consider adding drop shadow support for shapes? I like using them and this would take them to the next level.

Thanks!

When browsing between different action sets in the Action Sets Manager, the targets on the right side are not updating properly.
See example here:

Is it possible for shapes to be rotated N degrees? I'd like to make groovy items with rounded rectangles at angles, instead of just straight up and down.
Answer
Right now you can only rotate a triangle by any specified number of degrees.  We absolutely plan to add that rotate ability to rectangles and squares in the "near" future.

I noticed actions that have been deleted are reappearing, even upon restart of computer.  Happens when I have chained actions, i.e..,
On Tap > Animate graphic element > No looping
On Tap Play mp3 audio clip,
On Tap Fill a different graphic Element  with color,
On Tap fill another graphic Element with color.  
Then chain all to one on Tap action.  
If you delete one of the Fill color actions and try to reset the action on the deleted action, the deleted action set reappears in the action set manager.

Thanks for looking into this.

This bug will be fixed in the coming version of the builder. Thank you for the feedback

HELP!!!!

I downloaded the lastest version of Builder 342 today.  I started a practice book. 

First I added a animation of 12 frames that loops continuously.  It worked correctly when I reviewed it in Interact.  Then I added an image png file which does nothing but sit on the page. 

When I try to delete any element on the page I get an error:
"An error occurred with the database; it is suggested that you quit and relaunch InteractBuilder, but you can also choose to go to the Manage page instead.  What do you wish to do?"

No matter what you do it when you reopen the book.  All the elements are still on the page.  I cannot manage to delete an element!!!!


Answer
Judy,
Please send us a copy of your app using DropBox, HighTale or any other file sharing service.  We will take a look at what is going on.  Send it to ezra@interactstudios.com.  Do not email me the app directly because it may be too big for our email server to accept, so please use a file sharing service.

Thanks.
