I am wondering if Captivate is able to record changes in
text. I am dealing with a Word document which we would like to show
being updated in real time, e.g. hilighting a sentence and then
typing in a new sentence. Is this possible in Captivate? And if so
what settings would I need to make this work?
Captivate should record that just fine. I would suggest
recording using Demonstration mode with the "Record Keystrokes"
To configure these, click Options > Recording Options...
> Recording Options tab. Ensure the "Enable auto recording"
check box is selected. Then ensure the Recording Mode is
"Demonstration". From there, look down the dialog a bit and ensure
the "Record keystrokes" check box is selected. Once you do this,
click the "Full Motion Recording" tab. Ensure the "Automatically
use full motion capture for drag-and-drop operations" check box is
selected. (This should cause the highlight to be captured nicely).
Once you do all that, click OK to dismiss the dialog, fire up
Word and load your document, then record away!
