As the title suggests, I created a project in Captivate 4 and would to edit the project in Captivate 3. When I try to open it, I get the error message, "Adobe Captivate could not open "project.cp" because it is either not a supported file type or because the file has been damaged..."
Are these files not backwards compatible, even from Captivate 4 to 3? Anything else I should consider?
(I created the project using a 64-bit version of Windows 7 , if that's a factor. I tried opening the file on another machine running Win XP, but got the same error.)
Unfortunately Captivate projects are only forward compatible. And even that will have limits.
Your best bet is to have both versions installed on the same PC. Then create a new, blank project in Captivate 3 that is sized identically to the one in 4. Then perform a copy/paste to move the content from 4 to 3.
Note that any buttons or click boxes will likely need re-linking and you cannot expect things that are "4 specific" to work in 3 any longer. (Widgets, Advanced Actions and the like)

I was afraid of that. (Fortunately I created only a test project, so no real time invested.) Thanks, Rick
