toggle audio freezing app

winsomeworks 3 years ago in By Screen / Interact • updated by Inna Komarovsky (Administrator) 3 years ago 3
Hi!  I am rebuilding my app and all is going well except for that I have observed that the toggle audio behavior seems to be freezing the entire app.  any suggestions?
Answer
Thank you so much for letting us know. I was able to reproduce this problem, and I've reported it to our lead developer.

If you'd like to use a workaround for the time being, you can use a global counter and behaviors with conditions that depend on the counter, as described in the Creating a Toggle for Narration, Language, etc. article.

Hidden element still covers other elements

Ranco 3 years ago in By Screen / Interact • updated by Ken Ray (Administrator) 3 years ago 4
I have an hidden "hint" element that I can fade in and out upon user request to hint the user on animation locations.
The problem is that these elements are considered when I click on them (although invisible), hence obscuring the actual animation element:


In the example above, the drawer opens and slams when clicking on it, but you can't click on most of it because the (hidden) finger obscures it.
I think that elements that are not visible in runtime should not be tested against mouse/click position at all.
Answer
Hi, it looks like I misunderstood you, I apologize. I thought you wanted the user to be able to click while the hint is visible, but it seems that in the current build the area where the hint had been can no longer be clicked, even when the hint has faded out. I'll describe this bug to the developers. Thank you for pointing this out!

Read to Me in InteractPlayer

russellshaffer 4 years ago in By Screen / Interact • updated 4 years ago 2
Thanks to Alin Matel's advice a couple months ago, I've been able to get the read-to-me function working on my book -- but only on my computer. When I share the book with myself and read it on my iPad, the read-to-me option doesn't work. There are other sound effects, there's just no reading sound. Any ideas on why this is/how I can fix it? Thank you for your time and feedback.

About Share of App in IB4.0

Truman Kong 3 years ago in By Screen / Interact • updated by Paul Snakes 3 years ago 11
How do we share the App in IB4.0 with others, if using iPad? There used to be an InteractPlayer App. But I think it is no longer available or cannot download the new App. 

So how do we test the App in iPad?

3.4 - scaling is not working anymore

Ranco 4 years ago in By Screen / Interact • updated by Alin Alexandru Matei (Support) 4 years ago 7
It used to work wrong (I posted a bug on that) - when you scale to 80% and then back to 100 (= scale 125%). Not it doesn't work at all....

Can you type answers in app?

cathy lane 4 years ago in By Screen / Interact • updated by Alin Alexandru Matei (Support) 4 years ago 1
I am creating an activity page at the end of my book and I would like the children to be able to fill out an activity sheet- Type words into blank spaces. Can you do this in the builder?
They are being asked to write a verse for my book. The following page I am getting them to draw their illustration for their verse- (this you can do I think already in interactbuilder).
This would be great if it could be possible if not now but in the future development of your program. I am wanting to build books so that they can be used as teaching resource in the classroom.
Answer
Yes Cathy, you can do  this by using an empty Text element with SetText behavior on the text element as in the attached example:
251 - SetText.zip

2. Background sounds are not working at all
Answer
Would you mind sending a link to download a copy of the app folder to inna@interactstudios.com? We haven't been able to recreate this problem. Are the audio files in mp3 format?

Movement > Spin - graphic asset is being enlarged and cropped unintentionally

Charmaine Anderson 4 years ago in By Screen / Interact • updated by Inna Komarovsky (Administrator) 3 years ago 4

IB3 enlarges a static graphic set to spin in Interact mode, making part of the asset's image being cropped from view.  It looks like the image is being enlarged by about 20%.

To reproduce, see the app I shared with Alin, Page 5.  Note the static graphic of the dolphins are being enlarged in Interact mode and note their fins are being cropped as the image is spinning.  I set the object spin rate to about 10%.

Answer

We were able to recreate this and we are working on a fix.
