In previous versions of Lectora a Table of Contents with "Frameless" selected would default to a transparent background, even when a color was selected. In Lectora 16 this has been corrected. However this means that titles containing a Table of Contents set to frameless will now have a background color appear (typically defaulted to white) whereas previously the color was ignored. Titles should be checked to ensure all frameless Table of Contents have the desired background appearance.PublishLD-0699 Publish to Exe creates broken shortcutLD-0745 OnShow > Play actions on an object to play an audio file does not consistently work in Offline PublishLD-1746 SCORM dependency values do not matchLD-1787 OnShow actions on Video/Audio objects trigger twice when publishedLD-1904 Crop tool renames image but doesn't match in manifestActionsLD-0302 Text rendered as an image that contains action does not change mouse cursor when hovered overLD-0857 Hide action on a Web Window doesn't work on iPadLD-1052 Audio Objects in a group will cause Mute action to not workLD-1208 Actions do not work on graphics/status indicators with effectsLD-1399 Mute/Unmute action does not work if action is added before media.LD-1711 On Done Action does not fire with .WAV filesLD-2040 Toggle Play Pause on a WAV file stops and restarts the audioQuestions/Tests/Surveys/FormsLD-0537 Alt tag showing in form elementsLD-0199 Use of actual double quotes or single quotes causes incorrect test scoresLD-0270 V12 Question Error for Korean languageLD-0319 Is Correct actions do not function correctly for some foreign languagesLD-0332 Chinese Test Questions add additional CharactersLD-0892 Default text styles have no effect on drag and drop questionsLD-0951 Image actions don't work on pages with Matching questionsLD-0953 Grade Each Choice does not allow Question variable to be used in conditions properlyLD-1265 Adding Test / Survey with view other than 100% will not correctly place buttonsLD-1302 Adding questions on a view other than 100% will scale the questionsLD-1426 Tabbing through question editor (for TF and MC) causes the question to be saved without a correct answer.LD-1543 User Cannot Resize Hot Spot AreasLD-1580 Matching questions preventing go to actions from triggeringLD-1599 Customized test results window crash when resizedLD-1635 Likert question interactions causing mismatch errorLD-1713 Custom test results CrashLD-1824 Questions with entry fields cause error if feedback actions are set to none.LD-1873 Drag and Drop questions with images do not work on an android phonePlease see our website for Known Issues with this release.
