Descriptions of features in Adobe Captivate 4

Now that the hint hint wink wink days are gone, I can go ahead and reveal the stuff that these features are made of. Note though that these links might not go to the correct pages if we update the help at a later point in time. For the next month or so at least, I don’t see it happening.

The New Recording Workflow:

Enhancements to Project Templates

Reviewing Adobe Captivate projects

Enhancements to the PowerPoint workflow

Text to speech utility

Drawing Tools


Variables and Advanced Actions

Table of Contents


Right-click functionality

Single SWF option

By default, Adobe Captivate publishes a single SWF file. You can however choose to externalize some of the files like (Skin, Widgets, FMR SWF, Animation) using the Preferences dialog box (Edit > Preferences > Publish Settings)

Design templates

Publish project as an AVI file

Whew! Enjoy!

(PS: There are some enhancements that you will figure out anyways. So, I am leaving those out)
