Three days ago I downloaded the trial version of
Captivate 2 and have been busily adding slides and audio ever
since. I had added audio to about 7 slides and timed everything
just right. The audio files were in my library. And, when I
previewed the slides in Captivate and in I.E., and published the
lesson ... the narration played each time for days. Now, all of the
suddent, all of my audio files have disappeared from the library!!!
The last thing I did was to insert four text-entry boxes onto a
screen and delete all the feedback boxes associated with the text
entry boxes. (Doubt that that is relevant, but wanted to mention it
just in case.) I'm kind of resigned to re-recording the narration
for those slides at this point but really want to know if I did
something to cause this to happen. Any help is
Sorry my friend - I really do feel your pain. But - if it's
gone, it's gone. And the library being empty is a pretty good sign
that audio was deleted.
BUT . . . just to be sure it's not something simple like the
audio being accidentally turned off at slide-level, have you tried
previewing the project in your browser ... or publishing it and
watching it after the Publish process is complete? Slide-level
audio can be turned off by clicking the tiny "spearker" icon below
the timeline on any slide. The audio will still be fine when
previewing the whole project, but will be "muted" when individual
slides are being run in preview mode.
