My own guess here is that maybe at work you are using multiple monitors and at home you aren't? So maybe that recording dialog is actually there, but moved out of sight. If so, maybe you will be interested in UltraMon. You may view the site by clicking here.
Note that I have no affiliation with this company. I simply googled to find a utility that might be used in such a situation as I described earlier.
yes At work I use two 20.1in LCD's
Here at my house I am using a 32" LCD TV as my second monitor hooked up through DVI and a 21" CRT through the DVI-VGA.. So I am still using two monitors. I have tried looking for it on both monitors. Changing primary monitors, upping resolutions on both, etc. That dialogue is nowhere to be found. On the same configuration on my home PC, it comes up fine. I may just uninstall/reinstall the app on my work computer..
Any other Ideas? I have used ultramon before ;) I also like to use "MultiMon Taskbar" LINK!
Hi again Jeremy
The only other thing I can think of to try is to perform what I call "The factory reset". Basically, you close Captivate, then use Windows explorer to hunt down and delete or rename a settings file. After you do this and restart Captivate, a totally fresh settings file is created when Captivate starts.
To locate the settings file, close Captivate and open Windows Explorer.
Navigate to the following folder:
D:\Documents and Settings\????\Application Data\Adobe\Adobe Captivate
Note that you would substitute your own information where you see ???? above.
In this location should be a file named captivate_v30.dat (captivate_v20.dat if using version 2).
Rename or delete the file and restart Captivate.
Hopefully this gets you back up and running! Rick
that did it.. don't know why but it did. I also had my 2nd monitor (TV) turned off when I restarted the app. Thanks for the help as always Rick! You are the man!
