Hi--

I created a new project in Captivate using powerpoint training slides.  About a third of the slides are corrupted: either missing words or black splotches on them.  What is the easiest method to resolve this problem?  

 

Thanks!

The most common reason for this is that the 'corrupted' objects on your slides may have animations or transitions assigned to them in PowerPoint.  When the PPT gets imported into Captivate these animations don't always come across properly and you see images cut off or missing text etc.  Captivate is usually best at importing slides when all objects on the slide are static and not animated.

 

Before we look at the problem further, can you check your slides and confirm whether or not the objects have animations?
