Perhaps you misspoke? You said that a Text Entry Box type of functionality is what you are looking for. But then you said you don't want to have to embed Edge Animate in Captivate to accomplish it. This would seem to imply you are using Edge Animate to produce something you will present using Adobe Captivate.
Maybe what you meant to say was that you don't want to use Captivate to create the functionality, then figure out how to implement the resulting Captivate content in Edge?
I should never have mentioned Captivate. I DON'T WANT TO USE CAPTIVATE. I would like to only use Edge Animate. SO, is it possible to create a input text box in Edge Animate at a particular point on the timeline?
