Prior to beginning my recording session, I'm selecting the
Demontration and Training Simulation mode. When I complete the
recording and save, Captivate prompts me with a "Project to Open"
field that contains: Demonstration or Training Simulation. My goas
was to have the first section of the project as a demonstration and
the subsequent section as a Training Simulation. How do I combine
both the Demonstration Mode and Training Simulation Mode into one
file? It appears that although Captivate allows you to record in
both modes, you must save in one or the other????
As you have seen, Captivate does create two files when you
record that way. However, it doesn't mean you can't have both in a
single project if you like. But before you do that, please note
that projects DO have a suggested maximum size. Adobe Technical
Support seems to be advising folks that 50 Megs for the CP (source)
file of your project is considered the upper limit. Personally, my
recommendation has always been 50-65 slides as a very broad and
general rule of thumb. So if each project is already at or beyond
that size, I wouldn't go there with having both in a single
Assuming the combined project would fit within those
guidelines, you may open one project, then click File > Import
> Slides/Objects... and point at the other file to bring it in
and combine it with the original. Note that you would want to first
select the last slide in the original project, so that the new
stuff would follow that slide and append.
Assuming this would create a project that is too large to
handle, you should consider leaving them as separate projects, then
using what we call a "Daisy Chain" so the next is opened by the
project as the first ends.
