Lectora: Upgrade 16.1 (April 2016)

Lectora Inspire 16.1 and Lectora Publisher 16.1 include the following updates and fixes:

New Features:

The new features in Lectora 16.1 are:

  • Test result pages are customizable and may be used in Responsive titles
  • Audio and video use HTML5-based players and allow layering of objects on top
  • Improved bullet and numbered list handling
  • Improved Likert question creation and editing
  • Use multi-select to apply Text Scaling in RCD titles
  • 50 Additional status indicator objects

To accommodate these features the title file format has changed from 16.0/16.0.1/16.0.2. Titles opened with this 16.1 release will no longer be compatible with these previous versions. If you are sharing titles with colleagues/clients, please be aware that you must all be using 16.1 to maintain compatibility.

Feature Notes:

  • Bullets / Numbered List Changes: Newly created text blocks will have improved bullets and numbered list logic applied. Existing texts blocks will not be affected. To apply new improvements, turn off bullets/numbering for the text block and then re-apply.
  • HTML5 A/V Player: Existing Flash-based custom skins will no longer work with new HTML5 player. Convert or recreate them as HTML5 skins. (See Information Center.)
  • Closed captions will work, however any special text styling within the XML file will not function. This will be resolved shortly with support of newer caption formats.
  • Closed captions will not work on iPhones.
  • Likert Questions: Existing Likert questions will be converted to new Likert (single) question objects. Existing Likert questions saved within library objects or imported from package files cannot be converted. They will not lose functionality.
  • Test Results: Display results in Pop-up window is no longer valid. Results will be an in-line page within the title. Please check your inheritance and navigation to/from the results page (especially inherited "Back" buttons).
  • Titles with Customized Test Results enabled will have those results pages converted to the new Results object. Checkbox settings will be retained. Custom styling of text (fonts, colors, sizes) will not be retained. Use the Results Designer to apply text styling.
