Thank you so much. I feel like such a goof for missing it.
Your not a goof. Every other app in exisitence puts Print under the File menu. Only Adobe would place Print within a submenu.
Thank you for showing us where the print menu is buried. Now how do you actualy print anything with it? How do I choose my printer? Why does it need a folder when i hit publish and why does it need Word to print? why do I have no options to not use Word? Why did you release this product?
I think you may be a little harsh in your criticism. You're thinking of the Captivate project file as if it were just a document or a PPT deck. It's a lot more complex than that.
The Print option here is an output, one of several on the same dialog. You're not printing the slides per se. You're publishing (rendering) a printable Word doc output FROM the slide collection.
Yes you can print a few different types of documentation output from the project file. But most of these are more related to the design and approval process. The Handout document is probably closest to what you might be accustomed to with PPT.
You need to specify a folder BECAUSE of the fact that you are publishing an output file and you need a folder location to publish to.
If you are more familiar with other apps or tools, Captivate at first might seem a little strange. However, once you work with it a bit, all of this starts to make sense.
On the other hand, if you end up hating it, there are plenty of other tools out there to choose from. Life is too short to waste time on things you hate doing or using.
