Oracle UPK Content Development Tool Settings

Oracle UPK Content Development tool settings:

Before developing UPK content, your UPK Developer needs to be configured with certain standard settings to ensure the content will have a uniform look.

To set the options:
1. Open the UPK Developer.
2. Click the Tools menu.
3. Click Options.

After you configure the UPK Options, you can share these preferences with other content developers by exporting them to an .ops file. This is particularly useful in workgroup environments where multiple authors are working on the same content that requires consistent output regardless of who authored the content. (To learn more about Exporting/Importing Content Defaults refer to the Content Development.pdf guide that is delivered with the UPK Developer.)

Here is a list of a few UPK Developer tool settings that Oracle UPK Content Developers use to develop UPK pre-built content:

Screen resolution is set to 1024 x 768.
See It mode frame delay is set to 5 seconds.
Know It Required % is set to 70% and all three levels of remediation are selected.
We opt to automatically record keyboard shortcuts.
We use the default settings for the Bubble icon and Pointer position.
Bubble color is yellow (Red = 255, Green = 255, Blue = 128).
Bubble text is Verdana, Regular, 9 pt.
***Intro and end frame settings match the bubble settings

Note: The Content Defaults String Input Settings will change based on which application (interface) you are recording against. For example here is a list of settings for different Oracle applications:
• Agile - Microsoft Sans Serif, Regular, 8
• EBS - Microsoft Sans Serif, Regular, 10
• Hyperion - Microsoft Sans Serif, Regular, 8
• JDE E1 - Arial, Regular, 10
• PeopleSoft - Arial, Regular, 9
• Siebel - Arial, Regular, 8

Remember, it is recommended that you set the content defaults before you add documents and record content. When the content defaults are changed, existing documents are not affected and continue to use the defaults that were in effect when those documents were created.

Wanted to add the idea of a TEMPLATE. When I set up a new UPK book I create a template shell consisting of the intro/closing with the background look and feel. That way when all the users start to create content, we all have the same look and feel!
