When I record new slides to an existing project, Captivate
always sets the transitions for new captions to "fade in and fade
out" which I never use. This forces me to always change my captions
every time I record new slides.
Is there any way to change the defaults to what I want so
that I don't have to manually change this everytime?
I don't believe any way exists to set the default transition
for captions when recording and allowing Captivate to add them for
you. However, you may wish to try the "Apply to all" setting. Just
double-click a caption, make the transition change, then click
Apply to all and click the Settings button. Choose the "Apply only
changed properties" action and apply to all captions.
This may be hit or miss. I do believe Captivate is a bit
buggy with this particular feature. I've seen it work some of the
time and fail to apply some of the time. Sometimes it's self
induced, as when I forget I want to apply changes, then double
click the caption and flag apply to all (but I really didn't change
anything after I opened the dialog back up) but sometimes it is
just obstinant and doesn't apply the settings correctly. I've had
it happen personally as well as having seen others report the
