If you are using Adobe Presenter 10, and would like to be able to publish your presentations to Captivate Prime (Adobe's new Learning Management System), then you can update your Presenter version to enable this feature.

This patch also resolves an issue with Adobe Presenter 10, where projects that were created using this version did not display properly when learners accessed it using Adobe Presenter mobile for iPad.

Note:

If you are using Adobe Presenter 11, and have display issues when your course is viewed on an iPad using the Adobe Presenter mobile app, download the fix below, and replace the presenter.libs.js in your installation with the one in the below zip file.
