Announcing Lectora 17

Trivantis has released the newest version of Lectora, version 17. Lectora Inspire 17 and Lectora Publisher 17 feature a stack of exciting features to extend your eLearning Development arsenal.

The primary new features in Lectora 17 are:

  • Seamless Play publish option: When this option is selected on the HTML Options tab during publishing, your title will smoothly flow from page to page, eliminating the screen wipe commonly associated with HTML pages.
  • Autoplay media on mobile devices: When publishing using the Seamless Play option, media files will honor the AutoStart selection on mobile devices, allowing simplified use of page narration and videos.
  • BranchTrack scenariobased simulations: Easily create, import, and edit scenariobased exercises using the BranchTrack application. Track the learner’s selections during the exercise and use the available score.
  • Anchor the position of your objects: Specify whether the object will maintain its location on the page within the view, even when the view is scrolled.
  • SVG rendering of shapes and buttons: Using scalable vector graphics technology, published content will remain crisp and scalable on highresolution displays.
  • Camtasia 9
  • Snagit 13


On top of these exciting new features, Lectora 17.0 also includes some fixes for existing bugs from Lectora 16. These include…
