works ok until i save then text is showing in filmstrip but not on slide and preview does not work
Are you on Mac or Windows? I have seen that issue a couple of times from Mac users.
Can you check the exact version number you are using? You find it under Help, About Captivate.
If this is a non-responsive project, know that the only valid Preview method for HTML5 output is F11, Preview HTML in Browser.
windows it works fine when creating just when I close it and then reopen so my thoughts are something to with saving.
Version number, please?
Did you try clearing the cache and cleaning the Preferences?
Yes tried both of these and
11.5.5 and says up todate
Is it 22.214.171.1248?
If yes, you seem to have a conflict somewhere. Do you use a webcam? Are you connected to a network?
Thinking of a conflict if i copy slides from a software simulation and enter into a project will this cause conflict if yes what the best way to do this.
no webcam used in a network.
You can copy/paste slides to another project which has the same resolution and uses the same theme (not so important for software sims since they use the Blank master slide).
