I just received Captivate 5 (build 220.127.116.116) and in general like the program and stability. What I am having a little difficulty with is the changed interface.
The new (default) interface takes up a lot of monitor space. Additionally, some functions such as (in Captivate 4) double-clicking a caption on the timeline and opening up floating window with tools, don't seem to be present.
I was wondering if there is a setting to display the control interface as it was in Captivate 4. Is this possible?
Also, is build 18.104.22.1686 the latest build?
No. There is no option to revert back to the Captivate 4 interface. You'll get used to the new interface soon enough. We've all had to do it.
There is a new patch for Cp5 that you need to install. Use the Update option under Help menu.

LOL, speak for yourself Rod I *STILL* struggle with this!
Did I mention I think the drab and dark OWL interface stinks?
It really is too bad that there isn't a vote and overall consensus before an interface change is unceremoniusly foisted upon the users.

I have a tendency of agreeing with you. The dark background color with black text is a little harder on the eyes. I also liked the floating windows that would open when double-clicking a timeline element, then close when you click the accept button. However, the biggest problem I have is with the huge amount of screen real estate needed to have all the controls I use to be available. I suppose I can set my screen resolution higher, but then reading is more of a strain. Right now I do a lot more scrolling than I used to.
As Rod mentioned, I guess I'll just have to get used to it. I'll find a happy medium somewhere.
Thank you both for your quick responses.
