And here comes a new update for Adobe Captivate 9, which makes this eLearning authoring tool even more amazing with the power of new eLearning community, integration with Adobe Stock, and some major performance and runtime enhancements.
To get the new update, open Adobe Captivate 9, and click Help > Updates and install the new update. Once the update is installed, your new Captivate version will be 22.214.171.1241. Here are the detailed installation instructions and release notes.
Now let’s talk about the new features and enhancements in Captivate 9.0.2:
Adobe eLearning community
I’m really excited about the brand new community portal added to Adobe Captivate 9. You can access this portal from the web or directly from within Adobe Captivate. It’s a great place to learn about what’s new in Captivate, get help from other Captivate users, and share your best practices with the community. It gives you access to the blog posts, forum threads, help documents, tweets, videos tutorials, product news and announcements, and more. You can also contribute by writing a blog post, showcasing your work, asking a question, or even answering the questions posted by your fellow-Captivate users.
Adobe Stock Integration and the revamped Assets dialog
Adobe Stock provides perfect assets for all your creative projects. Now you can directly import Adobe Stock images and videos in your Captivate Assets folder along with the other 50,000+ free eLearning assets that you already had access to. Watch this video to see how to download and use the assets from Adobe Stock right inside your Adobe Captivate project and how to use the revamped Assets dialog.
With this update, you will experience a significantly better runtime performance of your Captivate projects. Some of these performance enhancements are:
- Multi-state objects will now load faster.
- Images in a project will load faster as we have reduced the number of http calls to the images.
- Changes in timer logic will prevent heavy load on CPU and battery.
