After you have created an object, you can copy that object and paste it onto the same slide, a different slide in your project, or several slides in your project at the same time. This can save you a great deal of time, especially if you create intricate objects with specific sizes, colors, and formatting.

Obs!

You can also copy and paste objects between different projects.

Obs!

To reuse media objects that appear in the Library, simply drag the object from the Library onto the slide.

When objects from a slide are copied into a slidelet, the following properties of the objects are modified:

  • If timing for the object is specified as Rest Of Slide or Rest Of Project, it is changed to Rest Of Slidelet.

  • The option Synchronize With Project loses its validity for FLV files.

Copy an object to a different slide

  1. Open the slide that contains the object.

  2. Right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac OS) the object and select Copy.

Copy an object to multiple slides

  1. Open the slide that contains the object.

  2. Right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac OS) the object and select Copy.

  3. In the Filmstrip, select the slides to which you want to copy the object. Hold down the Shift key and click consecutive slides, or hold down the Control key and select any slides, even if they are not consecutive.

  4. Right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac OS) a selected slide and select Paste.

Copy objects from other projects

You can copy and paste objects from other projects. This strategy can save you a great deal of time. For example, suppose you have created a detailed object in another project. Simply copy and paste the object into any new projects you create.

Obs!

To reuse media objects from another Adobe Captivate project, open that project Library from within your current project Library. Then drag objects directly onto a slide or into the current project Library for easy reuse.

  1. Open the Adobe Captivate project that contains the object you want to copy.

  2. Right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac OS) the object, and select Copy.

  3. Open the Adobe Captivate project to which you want to add the object copied in the previous steps.

  4. Right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac OS) the slide to which you want to add the object.

  5. Select Paste.

Obs!

You can also copy Advanced Actions and Shared Actions associated with the objects. To do so, copy the objects referenced from within these actions in addition to the parent object to which the actions are assigned.

Duplicate objects

Duplicating objects is an easy way to reuse content. For example, you can duplicate a detailed caption and change some of the text to quickly add more information to your project.

Obs!

To reuse media objects that appear in the Library, simply drag the object from the Library onto the slide.

  1. Open the slide that contains the object you want to duplicate.

  2. Right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac OS) the object and select Duplicate.

    The object you selected is duplicated and the new object is placed on the slide. You can edit and work with the new object just like the original object.

Copy-Paste Appearance

In Update 2 of the 2019 release of Captivate, you can copy and paste the appearance of one object to one or more objects. The workflow is similar to the Format Painter feature in MS Word, where you can copy the style of a text or an object and apply the style to other objects without creating a style.

Using this feature, you can quickly apply similar formatting, such as color, font style and size, and border style, to multiple pieces of text or objects.
