Is there a way to hide the Closed Captions(CC) once they have been displayed other than clicking on the little x box? I have a number of interaction slides with buttons on the left and on the right a content section where I'm using states for different content. The CC is only on the opening screen, but once it finishes they remain on the screen as normal until the viewer turns them off. I would like to be able to automatically turn them off, or hide them after they are displayed for a short period of time.  Once the various buttons on the left panel of the screen are selected the related states display the content on the right panel of the screen which is fine, but currently the CC is still displayed and it has no bearing on the content being presented. I'm using Captivate ver. 11.5.1.499 on Window 10 Pro

You can use the system variable cpCmndCC. It is a Boolean. Use the On Enter event of the slide where you want to hide CC to assign the value 0 to this variable. If you allow returning to a slide where CC is needed, you need to use a similar action to assign the value 1.   BTW please upgrade to 11.5.5.553, which is the most recent version and is the only one supported at this moment.
