I am using Captivate 2019 22.214.171.1249
This has worked without issue until today. Whenever I try to paste something Captivate just crashes.
I have tried this on different modules, and after a PC reset.
Any ideas, I have read that changing to Administrator settings helps but why now? It just says Adobe Captivate suffered a fatal error.
Many thanks in advance for any suggestions.
Have a look at your cache folder, it may have grown too big. You can clear it (maybe open first the files where you are busy with) from Preferences.
If that is not solving the prolblem, try to Clean the Preferences. You need admin rights. Find the subfolder 'utils' in the installation folder and run the CleanPreferences... file appropriate for your OS, whilc Captivat is CLOSED.
Hi, tried both of these already with no success, but thank you for your detailed reply.
Just a tip: you are using your email address as Adobe ID... not afraid of spam?
If this was not helping; it is also possible that the Themes you are using, which are a copy of the original Themes in the Gallery, are corrupted. If you are on Windows (which I presume), you find those themes in this folder :C:\Users\Public\Documents\Adobe\eLearning Assets\Layouts
Delete that folder while Captivate is closed. When you restart Captivate a new fresh copy will be made from the originals in the Gallery.
Something similar could happen with other folders under eLearning Assets, but that is rare. Layouts are most probable to be corrupted.
