Hi!

My recent project worked just fine, but now, I can no longer edit any of the style properties.
My work has stopped completely and I feel desperate.
To show you how it looks, it looks like this.

As you can see, I have an object selected, but can only change opacity.
Fellow community, I need your help!

Regards
Robin

Adobe staff posted a solution when this is due to corruption of the Captivate application. By cleaning the Preferences you could also lose customisation. I explained how to restore them in an older blog which is stil valid:

However, if the file itself has become corrupted, this workflow may not repair the problem. In that case you should start from a new project using the same theme (provided the theme is not corrupt) and resolution, then copy/paste the slides from the project to that new one in small bunches.
