    Duplicating a PPT slide in Captivate 4

    glahnw

      Hello All,

      I am stumped and new to Captivate 4. I have inserted my PPT into Captivate. To keep the background color, I duplicate a slide and delete all the current content on that duplicated slide. When I do to edit PPT, I choose edit slide, not edit presentation. I add new content and select save PPT. Once I return to the edit review of Captivate, the original slide that I duplicated from has now changed along with the duplicated slide. What am I doing wrong?

       

      Thanks in advance,

      Windy

          Hello,

           

          Why do you not change the content on the duplicate slide in CP itself? Or create the duplicate slide in PPT, and import it in CP. There is a linked slide between CP and PPT, and you made two identical copies. When you edit the original slide in PPT (I think you had only one slide in PPT), the roundtrip feature causes that both slides are updated since you asked them to be identical copies.

           

          I try to explain but realize that I'm perhaps adding to your confusion, am a bit tired and English is not my native tongue.

          PS: if you only want an identical color for the background, insert a blank slide in CP, open Properties for this slide (right mouse menu), open Custom for the color, you'll see a color picker (eyedropper) and click with the picker on a slide in the Filmstrip that has the right color.

            I will try to duplicate in PPT before importing in to Captivate.

             

             

             

            Thanks
