    Highlights in pulldown menus

      I've been recording a software tutorial using Captivate 3 in Demonstration mode. When I record selecting an item from a pulldown menu the resulting recording isn't correct. What Captivate records is the item highlighting before the mouse actually clicks on it. Anyway to correct this?

          This sometimes happens to me, also. What I have done is pause when the pulldown menu comes down, then pause while highlighting the item in the menu before actually clicking it. This usually gives Captivate a chance to "catch up" and record everything. It often results in superfluous screenshots (of the "pauses"), but you can just delete those slides and everything should be seamless.

          I hope this helps.

            Or, for just use the manual capturing mode (default is PrtScn) to capture drop-down menus. You can use this even if you are recording a movie using autocapturing.
