A slide in a Captivate project is the canvas on which you create your story. This is the place where you put the content that you want your users to consume. This section will get you started with how to add, edit, delete, hide, and lock slides in your project.

Assets and samples

The procedures in this document require you to use assets such as images and sample Adobe Captivate project files. You can choose to use your own assets and samples. However, it is recommended that you download and extract the following zip file to your computer:

Edit slides

You can edit the properties of a slide. For example, you can add a background color or background image to a slide.

Let's change the background color of the new slide and add a caption to the slide.

After this procedure, the slide in our project will look like:

Hide, lock, and delete slides

Hide slides if you want to keep them in your project but don't want to show them in the final output. This is useful if some slides are currently work-in-progress but you want to publish your project.

However, if you're sure that don't want to keep certain slides in your project, you can delete them.

Also, if you are done working on a slide, lock the slide to ensure that you (or a colleague) don't inadvertently make changes to the slide.

Let's work with the slides in our project.

  1. In the downloaded files folder, navigate to the samples subfolder and open:

    create-project-slides.cptx

    註解:

    It is not mandatory that you download the project file that ships with this tutorial. You can still follow along with the steps in this procedure. However, you will need to create a new project in Captivate and add some slides to the project.

  2. In the Filmstrip, navigate to the slide titled True / False.

  3. Right-click on the slide and choose Hide Slide.

    Notice that the slide is still visible in the Filmstrip but it's dimmed out.

  4. Next, navigate to the slide titled Multiple Choice - 2.

  5. Right-click on the slide and choose Delete.

    This time, the slide is deleted from your project. You can use Captivate's Undo feature to get the slide back if you did that accidentally.

    The slide titled Matching is done so let's lock it.

  6. Navigate to the slide titled Matching.

  7. Right-click on the slide and choose Lock Slide.

    The  icon displayed in the upper-right corner of locked slides acts as a visual cue.

    註解:

    If you need to make changes to the locked slides, you need to first unlock the slide.

    To quickly unlock a single slide, click the lock icon.

Duplicate, copy, and drag-and-drop slides

You often need to create copies of slides that you want to replicate at another point in the project. You can even copy slides in one Captivate project and then paste them into another project.

Or, instead of using the copy and paste feature, you can duplicate slides to place the duplicates immediately after the original slides.

You can also use the drag-and-drop feature to quickly move slides around in a project.

Let's see how these operations work in Captivate's Filmstrip.

  1. In the downloaded files folder, navigate to the samples subfolder and open:

    create-project-slides.cptx

    註解:

    It is not mandatory that you download the project file that ships with this tutorial. You can still follow along with the steps in this procedure. However, you will need to create a new project in Captivate and add some slides to the project.

    First let's copy the slide titled Multiple Choice - 1 and paste it after the slide titled Matching.

  2. In the Filmstrip, navigate to the slide titled Multiple Choice - 1.

  3. Right-click on the slide and choose Copy.

  4. In the Filmstrip, navigate to the slide titled Matching.

  5. Right-click on the slide and choose Paste.

    The copied slide is pasted after the currently selected slide.

    Next, we'll duplicate the slide titled Multiple Choice - 1.

  6. In the Filmstrip, navigate to the slide titled Multiple Choice - 1.

  7. Right-click on the slide and choose Duplicate.

    The duplicate is placed immediately after the original slide.

    Finally, let's move the slide titled True / False and place it before the slide titled Quiz Results.

  8. In the Filmstrip, navigate to the slide titled True / False.

  9. Select the slide, drag it down the Filmstrip, and drop it before the Quiz Results slide.

註解:

The duplicate, copy-and-paste, and drag-and-drop features in Captivate can be performed on a single slide or on multiple slides. To do these tasks on multiple slides, multi-select the slides in the Filmstrip using the Shift+click or Ctrl+click key combinations.

    The Publish To My Computer dialog box is displayed.
