Error importing a power point slide into Captivate 4 project

I am trying to add a Power Point slide to an existing project.  I am using Power Point 2007 and Captivate 4.  When I try to insert a Power Point slide, I get the following message:
Error Message:  Unable to load nsImportPPT.dll(999)
Can anyone help with this issue.  Thanks!

Hi,
nsImportPPT.dll is an "Adobe Captivate 4" dll and should be present in the "Adobe Captivate 4" installation directory (which is "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Captivate 4" by default). Please check if this file exists there.
I think 999 error comes when the DLL is not found. Try Re-Installing your Adobe Captivate 4.

  • Importing power point slide into captivate

    Not sure what I am doing wrong. I imported an animation slide
    from power point to captivate last night and it worked great (using
    Captivate2) I tried this morning (using cpativate 3) and the
    animation will not play, it just looks like a picture. Is there
    something different I have to do using Captivate 2 version vs the
    Captivate 3 version? Any help would be appreciated.
    Thank you.

    Hi again yankeebrit
    Well, where there's a will, there is often a way...
    You could accomplish it by using what I refer to as 'The
    Camtasia Approach'. Basically, it goes like this. Configure the
    PowerPoint to play in a resizable window. Start the slide show in
    the window, then set Captivate up to record the slideshow as it
    plays. Then, when you know animation is coming, press the F9 key to
    begin a full motion capture. When the animation ends, press F10 to
    stop recording in full motion.
    Using that technique, you are able to get what you want from
    Captivate 2.
    Just a thought... Rick

  • I cannot import Power Point slides into my presentation...

    Hello, have created brand new project with Captivate 7 and tried to import a Power Point slide I made seconds earlier, and I get an error message.  I tried the same with a new project in Captivate 6 (I have 6 and 7) and I get the same message.  See image.  Power Point was closed when I tried to import it.  Any ideas what could possibly be happening?
    Thanks for any help!!!

    As per the Captivate 7 manual:
    1. In an open project, Select File > Import > PowerPoint Slides.
    2. Navigate to and select the PowerPoint presentation file format that you want to import.
    3. Click Open.
    4. Decide where to place the imported PowerPoint slides in the Adobe Captivate project. Add the slides to the end of the project, or click a slide in the list and add the PowerPoint slides after that slide.
    5. Click OK.
    6. In the Convert PowerPoint Presentations dialog box, do the following:
    a. Select the PowerPoint slides to convert to Adobe Captivate project slides.
    b. Set navigation preferences for the selected slides.
    c. If you want to link to the PowerPoint presentation, select Linked. If you want to embed the PowerPoint presentation, deselect Linked.
    7. Click OK.
    The PowerPoint slides are imported into the Adobe Captivate project and they appear in the designated location. If necessary, you can change the order of the slides.
    Hope this helps!

  • Importing Power Point Slides into FCE

    Hey all,
    Have a project where I need to use a customer's power point slides in the finished video. Can I import them someway? Or maybe import into Live Type????
    Trying to avoid having to type all of them.
    Thanks,
    Al

    You can save a PowerPoint slideshow in many ways.
    One possibility is to export a set of images with the format you like: jpeg, tiff, png, etc.: make sure to select the correct DPI (as defined in PPT) in the Options of the save as dialog. For example 180 dpi make a standard slide of 1800x1350 pixels that might fit well in standard DV sequences (default 72 dpi makes a low quality 720x540 image).
    A second possibility is to export a movie; also in this case you can choose some parameters like the size of the frame. The default codec is Animation that is good, but requires a conversion of the movie in order to properly import it to FCE.

  • Is there a way to replace a Power Point slide in Captivate and keep the CC notes?

    Hello,
    I have a lot of Power Point slides in my Captivate project. The Power Point presentation is on a Share Point, so it is impractical to "link" the Captivate project with the Power Point presentation.  Now and then we need to make changes to the Power Point slides and then replace the old slide in Captivate with the new slide.  We have a lot of CC notes and TTS attached to each slide, so I lose all of that when I replace the slide.  Is there a way to keep the synchronized CC and TTS notes in place, and just replace the acutal slide?
    Thank you!
    Ryan

    1 - simplest way:
    drag the sound file on to the audio well in the Inspector > document > document tab
    music can only start on the first slide and will play untill the music ends, you can only have one music file in the presentation
    2 - more control
    drag the sound file on to any slide, add the  images on to the same slide and use Builds to reveal each image in turn

  • Error when combining Power Point docs into PDF in Acrobat 11

    Hi,  Am running Acrobat 11 and am getting an error when attempting to combine files.  Trying to combine multiple power point 2007 files into a single PDF using Acrobat 11.  Am getting an error "unable to find Adobe PDF resource files.  Do you want to run the installer in repair mode".  If choose yes or no I get the yellow error icon beside the PP files and eventually have to cancel the job.

  • Can I import hyperlinks in Power Point 2007 to Captivate?

      I have a presentation in Power Point 2007 I imported into Captivate 6.  Within the Power Point presentaiton, the user cannot navigate through the presentation without clicking one of two objects on the slide.  Each of these objects is hyperlinked to another slide with in the Power Point.  When I imported this Power Point presentation into Captivate, the hyperlinks with the objects did not import even though "high fidelity" was clicked.  Is there a way to solve this problem?
    Thank you!
    Ryan

    No, you'll have to recreate those links in Captivate, they will not import.

  • Importing Power Point  slides

    I have been trying to resolve this for the past two weeks. I
    have been successfully importing Power Point slides into Captivate
    1 for the last year. Although have not done anything different,
    Captivate is no longer importing the jpg logo (height 0.58" width
    1" displays top right corner) on the PP slide . Everything but the
    logo is displayed in Captivate. The logo is on the Slide Master . I
    replaced the Slide Master, copied the logo onto each individual PP
    slide and recreated the entire power point presentation without any
    success. Can anyone provide a cause and resolution? Thanks.

    I have also had inconsistent results with PowerPoint imports
    in both Captivate 1 and 2. There seem to be less in version 2. The
    problem that I have been experiencing is with fonts. I will have a
    slide that clearly is within the frame in PowerPoint, but when
    imported into Captivate flows off the bottom of the slide. This is
    also incosistent from slide to slide. Here's what I have been
    doing. It's isn't ideal, but hopefully time will get this issued
    ironed out.
    1) I go through my normal import procedures for PowerPoint
    presentations by look closely at the thumbnails provided before the
    final import. If it looks like there is going to be a problem, then
    I bail out at this point.
    2) I go back into PowerPoint, call up my presentation, and
    the do a File > Save As> and then select the file type at the
    bottom as JPEG. It will then ask you if you want to save all. I put
    them in another directory and PowerPoint saves each slide image as
    an individual JPEG image.
    3) I go back to Captivate and import these as images in the
    file creation sequence.
    This usually results in a pretty clean set of slide.
    Hope this helps.

  • Power Point Slides Change Color After Importing

    I built a lot of training material (22 Captivate
    modules/movies)- Power Point slides for text, mixed with software
    simulations. Several of the modules need updating, however, since
    we upgraded from Office XP to Office 2007, I have been unsuccesful
    in importing the edited Power Point slides. Instead of the gradient
    pale-blue background with black text (as it appears in my Captivate
    movies as well as in Power Point) the moment you choose your slides
    to import into Captivate, they become purple with teal text. I had
    a co-worker access my files on a share drive and attempt it on her
    machine, with the same result.
    Anyone else having Captivate anomolies after upgrading to
    Office 2007?

  • Import power point slides

    Hi,
    I did a lot of internet research on this topic but couldn't solve it yet. Hope one of you can help with that issue.
    The problem is that when I save a power point slide as an image file (bmp, jpg, png) and import it to indesign the image quality is getting bad. After resizing the picture the quality is at the worse.
    Same problem occurs when I resize the image with an other software. Then the quality of the image is also very bad.
    Has anyone an idea how to solve that?
    greets tim

    Thanks for your reply.
    I tried this already and It's the same problem. PDF quality is perfect - when I import it into indesign it's getting worse.

  • Change  advance on power  point slide  after import

    How  do I change a power point slide that was imported to advance on click but I want the slides to advance automatically? 

    Hello,
    Watch the imported slides, they all have a Click Box inserted at the end of the timeline (see screenshot in the red rectangle). Delete that click box and the slide will advanced automatically.

  • Is there a way to import a Power Point presentation without adding click boxes?

    I want the user to navigate through the Power Point portion of my training by hitting one of two buttons.  Unfortunatley, in order for me to restrict the users options to these possibilities, I have to delete every click box from the slide that is added to the power point slides when I import them.  The only other option (as far as I know) is to make it so they advance automatically (without clicking) when I import the slides, and I don't want that either. 
    If someone can help me out, that would be great!
    Thank you!
    Ryan

    Why not import with the option 'advance automatically' and add the buttons in Captivate? Are you talking about navigational buttons (Next, Previous)? If you are using Captivate 6 you can use a Shape button for that purpose, add it on Master slides or time them for the rest of the project if you want to have them on each slide:

  • When I copy and paste a powerpoint slide into Captivate the slide is blurry how do I fix that

    When I copy and paste a powerpoint slide into Captivate the slide is blurry how do I fix that

    Have you tried importing it with standard workflow instead of coyping and pasting.
    Is the resolution of your powerpoint presentation and Captivate Project same, make sure it is same, else, it would rescale it to fit on the sldie, rescaling might detoriate the quality.

  • Can I import a Share Point calendar into the calendar on my iPhone?

    Can I import a Share Point calendar into the calendar on my iPhone?

    I just tried exporting the existing cloud calendar - which confusingly we've called "Family" and it's been in place for the last 4 years! - and then re-importing it and seeing if it will let me import to an existing calendar rather than make a new one. It worked for a few seconds (I told it to import in to the new "Family" calendar set up through Family Sharing). They all showed up alright - effectively duplicating all family events - but then I had thousands of error messages telling me the event already existed on the server and the only thing I could do was 'Revert to Server' - which deleted them all again. (It let me choose "Ignore" to start with but when the thousands of events clocked over to the first one again I knew I was on a hiding to nothing!).
    Going to try doing it about-face and deleting all trace of the original "Family" calendar first this time, (OK to do now that it's been exported)... stand by . . .

  • Updating Power Point slides changes the timeline

    Hi all
    I am using Captivate 4
    When I am updating the power point slides it changes the captivate timeline for the slides
    I set the slides to be 3 seconds and after each update I perform it extends all the slides to a longer period
    Why is it acting like that?
    Is there a way to prevent it from happening with every update I perform?
    Thanks for your help
    Merav

    Hi Lilybiri,
    The PPT slides that I add to the Captivate are not animated, these are static slides and I would like to set the duration for them.
    The problem is that with every update the timing is overridden.
    Thanks for your help,
    Merav.
