I want to open a Captivate 8/9 responsive project in Captivate (2017 release). What should I expect?
If you open a responsive project that you had created using Captivate 8 or 9 in Captivate (2017 release), you can see the following:
- Breakpoints from the previous version
- File > Save as Responsive option is disabled
- No option to add a Fluid Box
To convert to auto-responsive project in Captivate (2017 release), create a new responsive project, and copy-paste the objects into the new responsive project. Also, apply the same theme to the new project.
While copying and pasting slides, only the objects at a specific breakpoint get pasted. If there are objects in a specific breakpoint, copy and paste the objects separately.
To work with Fluid Boxes on the existing theme, you can save the theme when the project is initially opened in the breakpoint mode. Later, apply the theme in the auto-responsive project to which you will copy-paste the slides (and objects).
Then, to insert Fluid Boxes, click Suggest Fluid Box, or add them from the menu, and rearrange the objects manually in a slide.
