Is it possible to have speaker notes (similar to PowerPoint) that are not seen by the audience when you run the Captivate presentation? I would need to hide the speaker notes from the viewers when using a digital projector. Thanks for replying!!!

Hmmm.... why would an eLearning course being used as a presentation with a 'speaker'? Find that bit strange. I do use Captivate for my presentations, but the reason is that it is much easier to convert the file later to a real eLearning course. Can you explain why you are not using PPT for a presentation, because that IS a presentation, not an eLearning authoring tool. 

 

To answer your question... since it is an eLearning course, it will always play at the chosen screen size in the browser.  You could print one of the File, Print outputs to keep along....

Thank you so much for your response! I am learning Captivate and wanted to check if I could use it for presentations as well!

As I told you, I do use it when I present about Captivate for the mentioned reason. Here is an example of a presentation which I refurbished to an eLearning course.

Captivate's Timeline

But if I had to present about Acrobat, would use a pdf, and for InDesign would use an ID document.... both are not ideal presentation tools.
