I enjoy a rare and amazing view of the entire process of creating great software at Adobe.

In other words, even if you’ve used Captivate in previous versions – even dating back a long long way, you’ll know immediately where you are and what you are doing. The fundamentals are unchanged – and where there are changes, the time I’ve been able to save in authoring is astonishing.

I couldn’t resisted the opportunity to highlight the growing number of lowercase aTtachments to various terms in an attempt to describe efficiently the evergrowing array of associations.
