I have created a seed file with all of the fonts and editing
features created. Our thought was to create the seed file and then
just import any screen captures to it so all of our setting would
stay the same. But when trying to import the files, I follow the
instructions to a "t", and it looks like it is bringing them in,
but nothing happens. I select copy slide and objects....nothing, I
select objects....nothing. So to get my project started I actually
had to copy a slide at a time into my seed file.
I know there is some setting or something that I am doing
wrong, but I truly can't see what it is. I will provide my
firstborn if you can help me with this problem.

You probably don't realize it, but what you are describing is
exactly the way a Captivate Template is intended to work. So you
might try this approach. Take your "seed" project and save it as a
Template. (File > Save As... and ensuring that you click the
drop down and choose Template.
To use the template, click File > Record/Create > New
Project and choose the "Other" category and finally "Create Project
From Template". This should open your template in much the same
manner as you are doing now. The difference is that Captivate
assumes you are intending to add to it. So clicking File > Save
results in the Save As dialog appearing.
Give that a shot and let us know if or how well it works.
Rick, Rick, Rick....what would we do without you. That was
what I was doing wrong. So I created the template and then I will
have my team bring it in as they are recording their new projects.
That makes sense.
