Perhaps unnecessary question, but did you set the style of the Default Captions or of the Default Capture Caption ? It is that objects style that is used during recording,
Good question, I was not aware of there being 2 settings the Capture Caption and Default Caption. I have looked through Preferences and OSM but can not find the Capture Caption settings only Default Caption. Could you please tell how to set both.
Am I correct that the Default caption is used when I add a caption to my recorded project, and the Capture Caption is used by Captivate when recording?
Thank you for your help
So sorry, Ken, forgot totally that this object style was only added in CP5.5, my bad. I just checked 5 version and it is missing there.
You are correct, this Capture Caption style is used during capture.
Tried it out, this time on CP5:
- Opened file, changed Default Caption Style to something totally different
- Captured some slides and the new style was used for the Capture Captions
So I'm wondering what is going wrong when you try the same thing? Was also puzzled by the version you are mentioning, perhaps this is only a typo. Latest version is 126.96.36.1990 for me.
Sorry,you are correct it is a typo.
The correct version is 188.8.131.520.
I have tried the following.
Created a new caption style EA Capture in OSM Font size 25 and other settings. Made this the default caption and totaly different to the original default caption.
Recorded a few slides in Captivate but before recording opened the capture settings and set recording to use EA Capture.
After recording the captions are font size 31, but all other settings are the same as the EA Caption. This behaviour happens consistantly.
Thanks for looking at this for me.
