    Captivate screen animation to pdf

    ghyslainb
      Hi to all.
      Do any of you know how to create a pdf out of Captivate? Is there a plug in that I can download? The only way I managed to create a pdf out of captivate was to:

      export your animation as MSWord, then open the Word document and create the pdf from MSWord.

      This is a long process just to create a pdf, it's even longer when you have edits to do!! There's gotta be an easier way of doing this.

          Hello there,

          No sorry, apart from the method you have described below, there isn't
          any other way of converting the output from Captivate into a PDF. Please
          bear in mind that Adobe has only recently acquired the Macromedia
          product range and it will be a while before we are likely to see any
          direct integration with technology such as PDF.

          If this is something that you feel should be part of a future version
          then please submit a feature request to the web address I have included
          below -
