I am attempting to localize text in a project. I export the project captions through the export menu, change the text in the .doc file, and then try to import the .doc file through the Import menu. I get a processing bar that says the import is happening, but when it reaches 100% I get no confirmation and the text is not imported. I thought I was following the directions in the help section perfectly, but it is not working properly.
I am using Captivate5 on a Windows 7 machine.
Is the Word application closed when you import the document? I'm using Word 2010 (64-bit) and learnt by trial and error that you better close the MS application before trying to import into CP.
When a caption contains something in the left column (Original Text Caption Data), but not in the right column (Updated Text Caption Data) or nothing in the left and right column, Captivate 5 just quits out of the Import process
You can get around this by typing some dummy characters in the empty field (Updated Text Caption Data) and import; and after importing you can delete the dummy characters from the captions .
Ok. Nsukumar is right and let me tell you this is a serious bug. I had to place infomation into every blank on the left and right just to get this thing to update. There were some items that I purposely left blank.
Wow what a hassle.
