Converting Responsive Projects to Normal Blank Projects

Hi all,

I have been working on a Responsive e-learning module in captivate designed to work on laptops, PC, iPads, tablets and mobile phones whatever their orientation when tilted to a landscape or portrait position.

I have now been instructed by the management to just produce a module for laptops / PCs and not even consider mobile devices etc, for example when you just start a new "Blank" project in captivate.

What is the most straightforward and easiest way to convert what I have done as a Responsive e-learning module to a "normal" (blank) one.

I was just thinking about copying all the slide from the responsive one to the normal one but I have a few templates in the master slides and I have done a lot of adjustments with the skin editor etc.

And is there any potential pitfalls with this process?

Thanks in advance!

Keith

Some very important details are missing:

  1. Which versio are you using, please? Full version number as you can find under Help, About Captivate.
  2. Which workflow do you use for the respolnsive project: Breakpoints or Fluid Boxes?

As you already mentinoed, themes for responsive projects are different from themes for non-responsive projects. It is NOT possible to convert a Fluid Boxes project to a non-responsive project.  For a Breakpoints view project you could use the approach to copy/paste tthe Primary view slides to a blank project with the same resolution.  Not guaranteed that everything would workf fine, but it is a start.

For Fluid boxes I wouldn't even try. I would use the Library of the project to recreate the blank project because most of tha assetsd are there.

Update ASAP to 10.0.1.285. You are on the first release which a few bugs, fixed in the one I just posted.

Try the workflow with copy/paste in that case. Object styles will be different, because in Breakpoint views you have a font size for each of the breakoints. If you copy/paste the primary view slides, should be OK.
