I have recently created a new project with Captivate 5.5 by copying slides from 3 previous projects.
This project is made of only slides of quiz. I saved the whole new project and closed it.
Now that I am willing to work on it again, I open it but no text is found and an error message immediately appears.
It says that Captivate has tried to recover the project as a .cpbackup file...but there is no such file in my computer.
Then it suggests to close the application and as I do so, the application shuts down.
Is there any possibility to recover this project instead of doing it from scratch again?
Thanks in advance
you might be able to recover it with this method:
... and please, activate the option to create a backup file in the Settings, General. You can specify also the folder to store those backups, if backup functionality was activated perhaps you'll find the backup file in that folder (may be different from the folder where you store your captivate files)
Thank you both for your suggestions.
Unfortunately, Andy, your link hasn't worked for me ...as it is mentioned at the very end bottom of the page.
Do you know any other tips to fix this problem?
Thank you a lot
Why didn't the suggestion at the site Andy pointed to not work for you? I don't understand "as it is mentioned at the very bottom of the page"...
.cptx files may be 'hidden'. If you set Windows Explorer to 'show hidden files', maybe you'll see the .cptx files that are auto-created as backups?
