Is there a way to import an object into the library without
first adding the object to a slide -- other than bringing it in
from another library? For example, I want to import several images,
created in PowerPoint, for use by a slide that I've not yet
created. Do I have to paste each image to an existing slide to put
it into the library?
As long as the images exist somewhere on your drive, I
believe it is as simple as adjusting Captivate and Windows Explorer
so you see both simultaneously. Then click and drag the images
straight into the Library of Captivate. In some cases, you may also
click and drag images from a page displaying in a web browser to
the library as well!
If you are using version 3 there is a button at the top of
the library that will let you batch import images. But as Rick
said, the images have to exist on your hard drive as image files.
It looks like a folder with an arrow on it. When you click on it, a
dialog box opens. You can navigate to the folder containing the
images and select one or all to import.
