    How to replace current slides with new slides. For example, you may have a project complete with recording created from a MS Powerpoint file that you did not link to the original PPT file. Now you want to replace the background slides after making some alterations in the PPT file but there is no way you want to add the new slides, then copy/paste the recordings, etc. The shortest way to do this is to Create an New project, adding the revised PPT files fro the project.
    Next, you can save the project then Export the new file to Flash CS5. This with all Adobe Captivate Elements for Export turned OFF except for the Slide backgrounds. Once you have done this, you will have a separate Flash CS5 file (SWF) for each slide image. In the Library, Right Click the Flash image by name under Media. Those are the SWF files. After right-clicking select PROPERTIES and then UPDATE. You can go get the new image and replace the current one with the new one. The recordings, etc. will remain intact. Hope this helps someone save time and effort!
