Text entry boxes in CP6 - Enter key to validate input does not work in Safari?

I'm using Captivate 6 to create a step by step walkthrough of some different processes that are commonly completed in my workplace. Some of the example processes have portions where text is entered to simulate a process the end user might need.  I have text entry boxes in these slides that require validation of the input to move along, with Enter used as a shortcut key. This works great in Firefox, Chrome and IE all the way down to 8....but if the course is run in Safari, the enter key does nothing.  Is this a known issue?
Additional info: For many of these text entry boxes, the point is that it is a search field that has a little binoculars icon next to it that executes the search in the actual software we are simulating. For these slides I actually have the submit button associated with the text box made invisible (no fill, no stroke) and placed on top of the binoculars icon. This is an acceptable method of doing the task we're demonstrating, and just so happens to be a workaround for the enter key not working in Safari. However, a few places we have text entry that doesn't have the search/binocular icon next to it because there is a different goal on that section of the software we're visualizing. In those cases, there is no place for me to put an invisible submit button, and I can't make the submit button visible because that's not how the software we're demonstrating would work (thus defeating the purpose of the training).

Sorry, this is a known bug with no fix available yet, but the makers of SwiftKey are aware of it and we will work with them to fix it: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=617298
For now, the only solution is to use a different keyboard when using Firefox.

  • Convenience Key on my Torch does not work

    Hi Everyone!
    Seek your help as the convenience key on my torch does not work. I have changed the setting as well but to no avail.
    Regards - Nitin
    Go to Solution.

    Hi just an update to the problem of the convenience key not working or working now and again. I had to do a couple of reboots this morning to update some apps and I noticed the key was not working after the reboot so I attached the charging cable to the phone and plugged into the wall socket thinking that will fix it again, but no it didnt. !!! I then remembered the first time I had this sorted I had plugged the charger in and switched the power on and then attached the phone, so I tried this method again and the key is working fine again!!!!. So what ever is happening when you do it in this sequence seems to reset the key. How did you get on with your phone with the Blackberry info?

    Thank you again for your suggestions. I deleted the Skype application, but the "Phone" application continues not working. The version of the software that I have is 2.2, and i was told that I cannot update it to the last version, as my iPhone would be blocked doing so
    Therefore, following your recommendations, I resseted several times the iPhone, but nothing improved. Thank you anyway for taking your time trying to help me with your suggestions. Josep

  • Message shortcut key does not work in Safari

    Hi there,
    I've a shortcut key specified for sending links through Message app while I'm in Safari. (Command + Ctrl + M).
    It appears in the system preferences and I can even see the shortcut symbol in Safari but it simply doesn't work. I has worked randomly for sometime but does not work anymore. (Changing the keyboard combination hasn't helped either)
    Any idea ?

    Try shutting down the iMac. Disconnect the keyboard. Wait about 5 minutes. Reconnect the keyboard and restart the iMac. See if the Return key works now.
    If not, since it's so new, take the keyboard back for a replacement.

  • Help! Enter key on the Number Keypad not working on wired Apple Keyboard

    Help! The enter key on the number keypad has stopped working and it's making me soooo frustrated. I've looked around my preferences and can't figure out what is going on.

    I'd recommend doing a SMC reset, if this doesn't take care of it the key board may have a broken key and will need to be replaced. Here is are the instructions for a SMC reset:
    • Shut down the computer.
    • Unplug the computer's power cord.
    • Press and hold the power button for 5 seconds.
    • Release the power button.
    • Attach the computers power cable.
    • Press the power button to turn on the computer.

  • W8: Key combination Fn + F6 does not work

    I am little bit frustrated with W8 on my T430s. The issue (not the first) is that when I use key combination Fn+F6 it tells me this:
    "This key combination opens the Lenovo Settings program. You do not have the Lenovo Settings installed on your computer. To launch the program using this key combination, install the program first."
    I am sure that Lenovo Settings Dependency package is installed in the latest version but key combination still do not work.
    Thank you for your advices.

    Hey there petr_drda,
    With your T430s did you upgrade to Windows 8 or what it shipped with Windows 8 OEM?
    Only machines that were shipped with Windows 8 OEM currently have the Lenovo Settings App itself. The dependency package is the backend of this App that allows it to work. Those who have upgraded to Windows 8 do not currently have access to this app.
    What I have seen on another thread: "We are still working with Microsoft to make the Lenovo Settings app generally available to all users from the Windows Store.  It's not quite ready yet.  When it is, I'll post here." posted by someotherguy.
    If your machine was Windows 8 OEM, you may need to go into the Windows Metro App Store and download the Lenovo Settings App to your machine. I hope this helps.

  • Paste does not work in Safari browser to enter copied content into text box

    For example when I go to copy a URL Sosa to paste it into a text box on a local newspaper comment section, it won't paste in. Same goes for any pasting into the text box. I highlight what I want to copy (or cut) and the go to paste it into the text box, and nothing happens. Also there is this problem of the cursor not wanting to go where you direct it with your finger on the touch screen, where you have to get out of the data entry mode altogether then get back in to be able to continue typing to enter text, an d to add to the frustration, the cursor won't go where you want it to, but seems to arbitrarily choose an other place in the middle of the word next to where you want it to! Anyone experience this? I can't believe I'm the only one.

    Please don't take offense, you can't believe what some people post and then realize later that they have had a "duh" moment.
    I don't know what to suggest other the basic fixes, rebooting (holding the sleep and home buttons down until the Apple logo appears) and see if that helps - maybe clear the cookies and data in Safari even though that should not have any bearing at all on this issue or so I would think.
    I can relate to the cursor jumping on the screen issue as I do experience that from time to time. Not quite as bad as you seem to experience it, but it does happen to me as well. I have found that I get the best results using a light touch. And of course I will also enlarge the screen as well if I get too frustrated with the insertion point.
    Can we assume that you can copy and paste with the success in email, notes, etc?

  • How do I change the font size and color in a text box in Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro (ctrl e does not work)?

    I need to mark up scanned pdf documents with text box comments. I can insert the text box and type text but I cannot change the font or color. When I press Crtl E, no tool bar appears in the menu bar. What does appear in the menu bar is "No current selection". Please advise.

    I am already doing that: creating the text box, typing the text, selecting the text i.e. highlighting the text. This morning, for a scant minute, the properties tool bar appeared and I was able to refine the text in a text box. Then it disappeared never to be activated again this morning.
    I work half of my weekly hours at this client office and I only have this problem on their pc and adobe software (version 9 pro). When I am home, my laptop and the adobe software (version 10 pro) is fine. I can create the text boxes and refine the format at will with no issues. Could it be a software version and/or update issue? Thanks for any assistance.

  • Tab key on Original Macbook does not work

    The Tab key no longer works when trying to tab over, or to tab to the next input box. However when you press Apple key Tab key, this key combo works. I would have thought at first that I had a bad key button for the tab but the fact that apple tab works leads me to think there is some setup I have messed up by accident.

    Ok, the problem is in your original User account's Library folder. It could be a preference file. Drag the preferences folder from that Library to the Desktop and reboot into that account. You can always drag the folder back when you are done testing.
