Captivate 5 Bulleted lists, can you modify?

Mar 7, 2011 10:00 AM

Started using Captivate 5 a couple weeks ago, and have run into a problem with bulleted lists. Is there any

way to adjust the numbering/symbols? Can you change the first bullet fromt the default "1" or "A" to

"2" or "B"?


The bulleted formatting style seems extremely limited, especially if doing multiple bulleted lists, being that there's only 1 "symbol" - the disc. So if I have a bulleted list under a bulleted list, unless I change between letters and numbers, they are going to look the same. Looking for any solution to this, can you import any kind of bulleted style from Word or PP?

    No, you cannot import from Word or PPT into a Text Caption in CP5.


    But if you really want to have bulleted lists with multiple levels, why not create an image with a CP-capture or another capture program and insert that instead of creating a Text Caption?




    PS forgot another workaround, by exporting to XML, editing and reimporting

    Indenting a bulleted list item changes the symbol from a disc to a square and then to a smaller hollow square.



    Is this what you were after?

    You can do this in a Captivate text caption.

    The image I showed in my last post contains transparent captions.

    Multiple levels are possible, use the indentation buttons, but you cannot change bullet styles as asked in your original question. Perhaps I understood your question wrong?
