You are able to export backgrounds via the Library panel. Try clicking View > Show Library. With the Library visible, you are able to right-click the image and choose "Export".
Note there is a Captivate way to "White out" an area of the background. You click Insert > Highlight Box and configure it for 0% transparency and the color white. Then position it over the area you wish to white out. Now right-click the Highlight Box and choose "Merge into Background". The net effect is identical to what you would obtain by editing the background in something like Photoshop or Gimp.
As for grabbing extra screens, sure! Just tap the Print Screen key on your keyboard while you are recording. That action will force Captivate to grab that screen.
Excellent, thanks Rick! -billb
A slightly more efficient option than exporting is to right-click a Library item and choose "Edit with...".
Captivate will then prompt you for the location of your image editing application, such as Photoshop. You should only have to do this once, as Captivate will remember your application choice going forward.
A copy of the selected item then opens in your image editor and when you save changes to that image, the copy in Captivate is updated automatically.
The only caveat is that you need to flatten the image in your image editor to remove any layers before saving. Captivate doesn't know what to do with images containing layers.
Thank You,I was having a problem with this for quite some time,until this,Thanks Captiv8r.
