I'm just starting out using v. 6, and am trying to do the following:
On about 3/4 of the slide, I'd like my recorded simulation to play (I've recorded a simulation within Word demonstrating how to perform a task) and on the left side of the slide, I'd like to display a textbox of instructions for the user.
Here's a simplified example of what I'd like it to look like:
Is there a way in Captivate to resize the simulation window, similar to sizing objects in PowerPoint? From what I can tell, the simulation becomes an image that acts like a background on the slide. Somewhere I found commands in Captivate to change the layout (similar to PP) but this only placed objects on top of my simulation, not next to it. Thanks!!
I'd suggest to record your actions in Word as the first step. Record them at the size you want to ultimately present things. Then you can rescale your project to make it larger. When you rescale, Captivate should offer you options about where to place the existing part of the project. This would then provide a nice new blank area where you may then insert the captions on the left side.

I believe that will work.....thank you very much!
