I will be looking for updates on this subject - I ordered Captivate last week and eagerly awaiting its arrival.
My idea was to include the Captivate file as a baggage file and link it like I do all other hyperlinks (i.e. wmv files). Again, I have not received the Captivate software yet to see if that works in "theory" only.
have you tried linking as an "external" file?
@Jim - You might want to do this by using a Redirect page. Since the redirect is a HTML page, you could then open it in a new window as desired. Then the redirect handles opening the .SWF.
@Cindi - Actually, inserting Captivate content in RoboHelp topics is quite simple. You just click the Captivate icon in your toolbar (or click Insert > Captivate) and point at the .SWF Captivate created. RoboHelp will then create the appropriate code to insert the Captivate into your existing page.
To both/all - Captivate normally creates a few different files when it creates output. Another approach is to simply import the Captivate created HTML page designed to present the Captivate content. Then link to it as you would any other HTML page in RoboHelp.
The links below may help. Although they were created when RoboHelp X5 and Captivate 2 were dominant, most of what they cover still applies.
