I am working on a project that includes closed captions for an audio file that I am including in Lectora. When selecting my settings for the captions, I turn off the 'display caption box' option, which works while I am in the project. However, when I save and close out the project and then re-open it, the captions box is turned back on.

    There is a bug in the last version of Lectora Desktop that the "Display Caption box" setting is being saved properly, but is not being loaded properly when the course is reopened. This will be fixed in the next release of Lectora.

    While the Edit mode needs to be fixed by our Devs, maybe as a work around, there is some CSS you can add to the course so that at publish time, your desired settings will be used. Might be able to do this globally, or worst case, address the specific audio objects by their HTML name.

    Would you be able to point me to a resource that would help me with the CSS you mention? Unfortunately my knowledge of HTML and CSS is pretty limited so I don't know how to do that.

    Or, do you have any idea when the next version of Lectora will be released?
