I just had the same problem. After 45 minutes on the phone with tech support, I was told Captivate 5 and Presenter 7 are not compatible - even though they were purcahsed bundled together as the elearning suite 2. When I questioned why they would bundle 2 incompatible product, the response was that just because they come bundled does not mean they are compatible. I was told that Presenter version 8 (when it is released) may work with Captivate 5. I was also informed by tech support that Captivate and Presenter are to be used for 2 very different functions - Captivate is used to create quizzes and Presenter is for converting presentations to Flash. it comes down to Presenter uses Actionscr2pt2 and Captivate actionscript 3.
I've been having the exact same problem with trying to insert swfs from the Presenter 7 menu. These swfs are not necessarily created in Captivate, so I don't see the value in this statement in that they are not compatible. It only reinforces me and my development team to look elsewhere for products that talk with each other. Productivity is suffering because of this. Also, when i publish with Presenter now, it changes all of my fonts in the published document. I am frustrated.
The issue is not specific to Captivate 5 swf.
Actually Presenter 7 does not supports AS3 swf. So any AS3 swf is not supported
Adobe has this issue on its radar for the future releases...will keep you posted
The real problem is that I cant insert any Flash at all. I'm not getting the dialog box to open. All I get is any other window that I happen to have open popping up instead. This is getting a tad tiresome and slightly embarrasing now especially as I suggested we use it for a rapid elearning tool. I thought an Adobe product would be pretty stable and fit for purpose. Not happy.
I think I found a fix.
Even though the Adobe updater said I had the most up-to-date version of the software it was lieing. I had to go and apply all patches from 7.0.1 onwards. This seems to now allow me to insert flash again.
Thanks for the posts and I hope Adobe sort this app out, not being compatible with Captivate 5 or AS3 is not good.
After all updates up to Presenter 7.05, I can now insert a SWF.
It does not play or display,even after publishing.
The SWF was created in Captivate 4, using AS2 and compatible with Flash Player 7.
Nearly everytime I need to do something with Presenter or Captivate, I need to come to the forums and find a work around or bug fixes.
Kindly update to the latest update for Presenter ie 7.0.6 and then try
