We are a little behind and are currently using Adobe Captivate 9 but plan on updating soon. Does Captivate 2019 offer a "Publish to PDF" option? We currently use this option to sometimes allow for offline viewing of our training materials. But since Flash will soon be going away I am wordering if the "Publish to PDF" option is still even available in Captivate 2019?

 

If that option is not available, is there an alternative to allow viewing of offline training materials that still allows interactivity such as quizzes?

With the demise of Flash player (thanks to that fruit company) a lot of functionality is getting lost. The only way to see offline is now to publish to an app (with PhoneGap).

Does the latest version of Captivate still allow publishing as an MP4 or executable?

Present version still allows publishing to SWF, and that means that you also can publish to EXE which is SWF-based. I wouldn't recommend to use that anymore.

Publishing to mp4 is always possible, but you lose all interactivity since that is a passive video format. You can use it to create an interactive video, but that will again to be uploaded to a webserver like HTML5 output.
