Good points, ianatusq. Good enough to pass on to the developers so they can assess the need for changes in the next version - and you can do that by completing a "Feature Request" or "Bug Report" at this link .
I've noticed similar behavior in the past, but solved it by just changing the way I use Captivate's recording process (I avoid typing anything when possible). For the use you suggest, I can see this could be quite problematic, so I really think you would be doing the developers a favor by letting them know at the link above.
Have a great day, and welcome to the Captivate User Community!!
Did a way to stop this happening ever surface for Cap 3?
All of a sudden my version has started doing it.
It is so painful having to pause recording every time I use a space when recording text.
Not as painful as having one slide for every word typed.
Why would it start doing this all of a sudden???
Can anyone tell me if Cap 4 does this too? My trial has run out.
I did a capture using CP4, on a fullscreen having MS VS 2008, command prompt, notepad opened. I captured typing for about 10 minutes which involved changing these applications in between. And i did not run into your issue.
If you are able to reproduce this issue consistently please log a bug mentioning exact steps.
Typing 5 words into a single text field causes 5 separate slides.
A web-browser based Configuration Management System.
If it doesn't happen in Cap 4 its not really worth reporting, eh?
Suckers like me stuck with Cap 3 will just have to stick to the painful work around.
Please download a small utility called "Inspect32.exe" from here:
and here is the file which shows how to use this utility:
The basic aim is find out the role of the 'control' where in you are typing and getting this issue. Please hit back with the "role" information of the control where in you are typing.
Editable text is the role of the 'control'
Please log a bug for this issue at:
and it would be really nice if you could provide us with a .swf file which shows the steps in order to reproduce this issue. We would also like to see the application on which you are doing the recording in that .swf file.
I've sent you a private message on how to show you a .swf??
I've got the original capture of when it happened, but today I can't re-create it.
