I know it is possible to add a text box that show the slide nr but it would be great if this was just an built in function in captivate that you could turn on and off. 

Maybee I got it worng but when adding a textfield in a project with 100 slides. I then need to go back slide for slide to remove it?

You can always log a feautre request. However for a non-responsive projuect it is a breeze to add a slide number:

  • Open the Master slide panel
  • Select the Main master slide
  • Add a text container (shape or caption)
  • Go in Edit mode (F2 or double-click the text container)
  • Use the X button in the Properties pane lunder Character and choose the system variable cpInfoCurrentSlide

Have a look at this blog, with lore ideas about using system variables:

http://blog.lilybiri.com/discover-slash-use-captivates-system-variables-part-1

 

For a Fluid Boxes project (can also be used for a normal project):

On the first slide insert the text container (in a fluid box if necessary)

Insert the system variable which I mentioned

Go into Timing Properties, and change to 'Rest of Project'

Check th eoption 'Always on top'.

But you see that it is not so complicated to do what you want?
