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

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!

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

  • Can I replace my land line with an iPhone and keep the same phone number?  Thanks.

    Hi,  Can I replace my land line with an iPhone and keep the same AT&T phone number?  Thanks.

    There are always some wrinkles in this kind of change.  If you have a home security system like ADT they require a land-line for their system to work.  This less of an issue in apartments and condos - it's mostly a "house" issue.
    Before you make the switch (and there may be a switching fee) just make sure you cover all the bases.

  • 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!

    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:

  • 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!

    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.

  • Is there a way to link to a pdf in a iframe and have the find box removed?

    Hello folks...
    We are working on a transcription process and would like to have the pdf in an iframe. The problem is that in order to make this as quick as possible for the transcriber, the iframe needs to be as small as possible. The find box comes up and takes up a lot of room. Is there a way to turn that off automatically in the iframe source? Kind of like "zoom=100" but perhaps find=off or something like that. The find is actually pointless anyway since there is no text on the pdfs.
    And what about the navigation panel on the left as well (not as big an issue)?
    Thanks in advance

    nevermind...i found it myself. I found toolbar=0, and removed the entire tool bar. Thanks anyway....

  • Is there a way to flush my hard drive of all info but keep the OS?

    Hey Apple Forums, I'm new here so pardon any mistakes that I may make along the way.
    So I've got a very old iMac PowerPC G4 that I've been wanting to get rid of for a while. It's got 384 MB of RAM and a 700Mhz Processor, along with what I believe is a 50Gb Hard Drive (I haven't found a way to check for sure). It's running Mac OS X 10.2.8. So here's my question. Is there a way to totally flush the hard drive (or reformat it) to get rid of any sensitive data, but then be able to install or keep the OS files and get it running again? I'm not sure if it even came with an installation disk, but by now it's long gone. Feel free to ask me any questions if you need to know more or give me any tips or advise.

    All Macs are supposed to come with installation discs from Apple, until July 20, 2011.  Sadly finding the original discs for that Mac is going to prove a bit of a chore.  You can do much of what you want by simply creating a new user account through Apple menu -> System Preferences -> Accounts, and deleting the old account.  I do highly recommend backing up your old data elsewhere.   See my backup FAQ*:

  • 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

  • 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.

  • Is there a way to allow someone to play a keynote briefing and prevent them from copying, rewriting, or printing it?

    Is there a way to allow someone to play a keynote briefing and prevent the user from copying, modifying, or printing it?  The reason I ask this
    is because I have created a lengthy keynote briefing book that has motion in it, and I don't want it copied, modified, or printed.

    To lock a presentation : 1 Open the presentation you want to lock , and hold your pointer over the name of the presentation at the top of the Keynote application window. A triangle appears. 2 Click the triangle and choose Lock. To unlock a presentation for editing: Hold your pointer over the name of the presentation at the top of the application m window until the triangle appears, click the triangle, and then choose Unlock
    Good luck

  • Power point project won't move to the next slide

    I create a project with several power point slides and then some automation and then slides again. The automation created within captivate moves from slide to slide. But the power point slides don't move to the next slide automatiacally. I have to click on next to make them move. I looked in the manual and can't find a source to tell me what to do with the slides to make them move automatically (like a slide show would be).  Any suggestions?

    Hi there
    When you import a PPT, you have two options. One option allows the PPT to just play through. The other option inserts a Click Box object on slides that prevents the slide from moving forward until clicked by the user. The choice is made in the dialog.
    The default is On mouse click. After your slides arrive, the timeline looks like this:
    To allow the slide to move forward, delete the Click Box.
    Cheers... Rick

  • Any way to show more than two slides at a time on the secondary display?

    During a presentation, is there any way to show more than two slides at a time in the secondary display? Sometimes during a presentation i have to go back to a certain slide without notice (usually no more than ten slides behind or in front of the current slide)
    Thanks in advanced...

    Nope. But you can jump around easily enough. Just type in the number of the slide you want (or any number, really, because you can then use the arrow keys to scroll to the correct slide), and hit return.

  • Is there a way to replace re-sized images?

    I have several images (640 x 480) that I have placed into a PDF. When I use the Object TouchUp Tool, (right-click and choose "Place Image...") they come in WAY too big for the layout, so I scale them down to fit. Now, I need to replace those images with new ones (also 640 x 480).
    1) Is there a way to replace the images, (Right-Click on the image to be replaced > "Place Image...") so that the new images are placed at the same dimensions (and hopefully position) as the scaled old images, instead of having them come in HUGE again and manually scaling them down and re-positioning them?
    2) Or, at least, is there a preference dialog somewhere that I can define a specific dimensions for the images to be imported at, regardless of their resolution outside of acrobat.
    I realize I could create smaller thumbnails and place those in the PDF instead. However, the person who will be responsible for replacing the images isn't very computer savvy, and it would take longer for them to save thumbnails then to just place the image directly into Acrobat and scale them down.

    I want to AVOID scaling the new pictures (and in an ideal world, I'd also like to avoid re-positioning) manually. Example, I have a window sticker PDF for a silver car with 3 pictures in it, a front, rear, and interior. When initially placed into the PDF, the pics (640 x 480)for the car were too big for the layout, so I used the Object TouchUp Tool in Acrobat 8 Pro to scale them down to about 150 px wide and position them correctly. Now, we get a new car in. It's practically the same car, but blue. So, the most efficient way to create a new pdf window sticker for the blue car would be to save a copy of the silver PDF and then just replace the silver pics with blue ones.
    Practically every other graphical Adobe program on the planet has a way to "replace" or "update" raster images. In my Acrobat 8 Pro travels, it doesn't seem there is a way to do this. I can "replace" (overwrite) the old silver pictures by selecting a pic with the Object TouchUp Tool, then right-click "Place Image..." This will stick the new blue photo in the same position as the old one. However, it still imports in at the giant 640x480 size, instead of the scaled-down 150 px wide size. So, I still need to manually scale the new blue photo down.
    Also, I've tried every combination of SHIFT, ALT, CTRL clicking to try to scale the pic from its center. In other words, if I grab the lower-right handle of the pic, the anchor point for the scale is the upper-left corner of the pic... so scaling it like this throws the pic out of position anyway.
    So, if anyone has a way to scale a pic from it's center, instead of the corners, please post it!! Even if I could get a dialog box requiring specific numeric dimensions... that would be preferable to having to re-size and manually nudge and smush the pics around to a rough eyeball location every time I need to make a new window sticker for a car (which is a lot)

    Turn off iCloud for Safari on all devices including the Mac that will be used to house the bookmarks you want to keep.  On your iDevices, if it asks to delete bookmarks, choose YES.
    On the Mac, clean up bookmarks using the Edit feature.  When finished, copy (do not move) the bookmarks file in the Safari folder in the library (Bookmarks.plist) to a safe location.  You will be copying the file back shortly. 
    Turn on iCloud for Safari on the Mac only.  Now manually delete all the bookmarks.  This will make iCloud “think” you want these changes to be stored in iCloud and because the other iDevices are have iCloud turned off, they won’t keep “feeding” iCloud with  your “old” bookmarks.  When you are done, there are now there are no more bookmarks stored in iCloud.
    You may want to also manually delete any bookmarks from the Favorites Bar also so that everything is cleaned out.
    Now turn off iCloud for Safari on the Mac.
    Copy your cleaned up Bookmarks.plist back into the library.
    Turn on iCloud for Safari on the Mac.
    Your cleaned up bookmarks will now load into iCloud.
    When everything looks good, turn iCloud for Safari back on in your iDevices.
