Does anybody have an idea when Captivate will be compatible with Big Sur? I’m still struggling to understand how Adobe get’s this so badly wrong with every major MacOS release.

Adobe have a massive opportunity by offering a home to Mac eLearning designers that can’t use Storyline, especially with new Apple silicon being embedded now and running Windows on Macs is going to get more complicated.

It smacks of lack of investment or oversight by Adobe with the Captivate dev team.

Did you ask Articulate why they gave up to try to develop a Mac version?

Captivate 2019 on BigSur is not working. The stage area is black. – I have sent request to Adobe to update me on the issue, hope they will get it fixed soon. It is advisable to wait for few more days.

No, Captivate 2019 isn’t compatible with Big Sur: https://community.adobe.com/t5/captivate/bd-p/captivate?page=1&sort=latest_replies&filter=all

Captivate tends to brick when an new major version of macOS is released, communication and fixes tend to come late (i.e. after the release of the macOS update). It’s always a good idea to wait for Adobe to release some kind of statement… (speaking from experience here).
