Only rather simple SVGs can be edited in Captivate, and only the Fill, never the stroke. But roundtripping with Adobe Illustrator is really easy, which allows full control over editing SBGs. More important is the fact that you can restrict the clickable area of a SVG to the SVG itself instead of the usual boundary box. Padding in the bouncary box can also be very useful. I created two examples where the restriction of the clickable area was used, which was impossible before this version 11.5:

What I'd really like to see is support for native Illustrator files, with SVG conversion not happening until final publishing.

There is no real support for PSD files neither but a great roundtripping. I don't know if it is really necessary to have a similar roundtripping for AI files, with its great workflow for exporting assets.

I am nt at all new to Illustrator, just that I preferred Photoshop in recent years. I am getting up to speed by watching all tutorials about new features and Deke's Techniques in LinkediIn Learning.

Hello Lilybiri, I am not referring to you. I forgot to mention Sara Drasner. The new forum is very confusing.
