New Corporate View Space

Corporate View is finally available in mAuthor new interface. It can be accessed from the project’s lessons list by double-clicking on the chosen lesson card.

In the Corporate View you have access to the lesson’s preview and all the options available in the right column, like the possibility of viewing the lesson page by page and editing its properties at the same time, using bugtrack, editing lesson’s details and metadata or viewing its history. Of course you may also access the options in the upper-right panel, like copying the lesson to another project or space, updating its assets and template or the lesson’s import/export.

New Addon – Media Recorder

Media Recorder Addon allows recording your own audio recordings with the use of the microphone. You have the possibility of playing the default audio or record your own sound tracks and then play them back.

More information on Media Recorder is available in mAuthor documentation. You may also view a short demo presentation.

Documentation in the Addon Editor

In the Addon editor, there is now the possibility of creating a documentation page to describe the addon’s functions, possibilities, supported commands, styles, etc.

The process is very simple – just click on the Documentation page and enter the text using the Markdown Syntax.

The ready-made documentation can be instantly accessed from the lesson editor – when a custom module is selected, click on the question mark button in the module’s properties.

Sorting Modules

The new function has been added to mAuthor Editor – Sort modules. It enables sorting the modules automatically from top to bottom based on their position on a page.

The correct modules order makes it easier to use the keyboard navigation mode and the Autofill function in the Text to Speech addon.

For more information see the mAuthor documentation.

Increased Working Area in the Editor

Increasing the working area in mAuthor editor allows displaying all modules, even those located outside the editor window. Now while arranging modules on a page using e.g. a mobile layout, you may change the page width from let’s say 1000 to 500 px and all modules are still visible, thus the layout can be easily altered.

This functionality will be very useful especially while creating mobile responsive layouts based on a previously developed desktop default layout.

Items Editor – New Functionality

The mAuthor editor makes it now possible to drag and drop the elements from the Items Editor List.

To change the order of the elements in the Items Editor for modules such as TrueFalse, Table or Connection, simply click on the item of your choice, hold the mouse button and move the element up or down the list.

Interactive Character Animation

Iframe animation offers now the possibility of creating and embedding in the editor an interactive animation in the form of some kind of “avatar”. The animated character controlled by Advanced Connector reacts to various user’s actions, gives feedback or provides useful hints.

More information on this functionality is available in mAuthor documentation. You may also view a short demo presentation showing basic avatar’s features.
