Is this possible? We created two large, basic modules for a client and now they are asking if we can convert it to ppt.. Is this possible? I am using Captivate 9. Thanks for the info!
Unfortunately there is no built in mechanism to click a button and poof! You now have a powerpoint.
But you could pretty easily do some copying and pasting of image assets from CP to PPT.
Thanks for the clarification 🙂
This question was addressed here:
In your situation you should ensure the client understands this process is outside their original statement of work!
I'll try to copy/paste, but the images may not get transferred.
The 'workaround' I would offer would allow you to get images from Cp into PowerPoint.
as an overview, you can print to word, open the word .docx as a zip file and grab the images, then import/insert the images into PPT.
The key is: once you save a word file to .docx, you can rename it as .zip, and ope the file as a zip archive and extract the images!
Open the zip file and navigate to images.
1) Enter the 'Word' folder
2) Open the 'media' folder
3) Drag the images to PPT slides
Upon further review, if you are finding more images than you care to drag and drop, you may have the option to create a 'photo album' as it will create a slide for each image. Here is a link to a reference and tutorial.
Btw, I say 'may have' as:
You get to the Photo Album feature in different ways, depending on the version of PowerPoint you have:
Yes, as mentioned below, printing your Captivate file to Word, then saving as an HTML doc, then getting the images from the HTML doc and inserting as a photo album in PowerPoint, works a treat.
