Captivate 8 Vs 10 (2017 version)

Hello,I need to use Captivate for an upcoming project. I have used Captivate 8 before, but now I have the option to install Captivate 10. Should I go for the 10 version because its latest? Or can I use 8 because I have already worked on it and quite familiar with the functionalities?

      • Some explanation is fitting. The Questions posted here are synchronized with the global Adobe forums where I am one of the moderators. I follow the Captivate forums very closely there, and get a mail for each question posted. That way I am able to reply even when I am on the road, by mail from my phone. You posted that question under another Adobe ID than this one and I answered by mail.
        Then you deleted the question, and my answer was bumped off. It still appears in this portal, not in the global forums And you posted the same question with another Adobe ID as a blog post which is IMO a very strange behavior. Blog posts are meant to tell other users about something that can be useful for them. They don’t get answers, occasionally a comment will be posted. A post like this one is not very useful, not for you and not for other users. If it was a question it would have gotten answers, I would have tagged it in the Adobe forums etc..
        I get notifications about this blog post because I posted a comment? It would just be drowned amongst many other blogs, some are useful, same are not.

  1. Hi Inde,

    Thanks for writing to us.

    Captivate 10, better known as Captivate (2017 release) packs more punch than its predecessors. Captivate (2017 release) focuses more on responsive course development using a design paradigm called Fluid Box.

    Once you install, thinking where to start –

    A Fluid Box is a layout mode that provides the arrangement of objects on a slide so that the objects behave predictably when the slide accommodates different screen sizes and devices. A Fluid Box is an easy to use layout model for e-learning designers. Sounds intimidating? Don’t worry, check out the wonderful video from Paul Wilson,

    Have an old Captivate 8 or 9 project and you want to make it responsive? Captivate (2017 release) gives you exactly that and more! Read all about this feature,
