We have a 320 page book which we would like to integrate into our online training. I want to do more than just embed audio into the pdf (which makes a very large file). I'd like to use some of Captivate's features. I just can't seem to figure out the right mix. I can convert the book to swf with FlashPaper. But I can't really work with that page by page in Flash or Captivate. Can I insert pages from my PDF book into Captivate? It seems like SWF, PDF, and Captivate should be able to work nicely together.
Currently there isn't any way of inserting a PDF directly into an Adobe Captivate project. What you could do is link to a certain part of the PDF using a click box or a button using the Open URL or File option of the On success menu.
Below is some examples of how you could do this I found on the web.
Another option would be take the text from the PDF you want to include on a slide and display this using a Rollover Slidelet
Insert > Rollover Slidelet.
This way you would ensure that the content from the PDF is presented in more manageable chunks. In virtually all cases, presenting learners with a large amount of text tends stifle not aid learning
