Hello,

I have an existing project that I did in Captivate 2017 which needed some of the software simulation slides changed. I recorded the new software simulation in a separate project hoping to just copy and paste them on to my main project. I have attempted to copy and paste the slides but the background slides are not being pasted on to the main project. Here is what I have done:

1. I selected all the slides from the new project and pasted them on to the main project. This resulted captions and mouse actions being pasted.

2. I have also tried to do a copy background and paste background resulting to blank slides without any objects.

3. I copied the background and pasted it as an image. This resulted to the text animations being placed below the image on the timeline. Furthermore, I could not change the order i.e. moving the picture below on the timeline.

Both projects have the same resolution.

I am lost of ideas.

Thanks for your help.

Thank you for your response Lilybiri.

The main project has a themed master slide. Would this make any difference to the Software Sim slides that I am pasting in? If that is the case, would you think using a blank slide as the first slide in my current master slide work?

Thanks

I was talking only about the blank master slide. Are you using the same

theme for both projects?

The main project is themed but the new project is just on a blank theme. I will apply the theme from the main project on to the Software Sim and will let you know of the outcome.

You're welcome. Themes are one of the less understood features, as I

learned in my consulting and training jobs
