Hi everyone

Out of curiosity: Is it possible to make an extension that has the ability to talk back to the AT from the preview window and if so, what do I need to look into in order to make such an extension?

I.e. I'm looking for a way to make alterations on the database from the preview window. Such as changing body texts or inserting classes.

We have spent a couple of years working on this kind of thing for our hosted service - you can see a video of it here:


or take out a free trial if you like from the same site.

Hi Paul

That is very cool! 

It makes creating Adapt courses so much easier for newcomers.

Can you share some of your secrets about how to save the edits users make in preview back into the AT/database?

We would very much like to do the same thing, but need a place to start researching ;)

Thank you very much.
