I created a Captivate project while connected to a shared server.
Now I copied the project file and graphic folders to my PC and want to work (not connected to the server).
When I update a graphic in the graphic folder and click update graphic in the Captivate project library…the update looks for the file on the H;drive which is the server location.
Are these file locations hard coded...is there no way to point the library to a different folder containing all of the same graphics.
Right-click the image in the library > Properties > Import. Browse and select the new location. The image is updated.
Thank you for your quick response.
Is there anyway to update multiple graphics to a new path at the same time. I have over 200 graphics used in multiple project files.
thanks, this saved me hours and lot of frustration. have over 1000 images and this will cut some time.
I have a similar issue (I think) in that I'm working on a file that was created by another team member on his hard drive. Now when I right click on a slide background image (a screen capture which is not saved to an image folder, but lives in the "library"), and I select "locate in library" then "edit with fireworks", fireworks opens it but with a different file name.
Normally it opens in fireworks, I make my edit, save it, and it gets automatically updated in Captivate. However, in this case, since I didn't originally create the Captivate file, it's looking for a resource path on my co-worker's machine. I can't update the resource path because these are background images (screen captures) which don't live in a seperate image folder.
How can I make this feature work so I can simply right click a graphic, update it in my graphics program, save it and have it be automatically updated? (This is how it works when I edit files originated on my machine).
Thanks so much for any guidance!
Sorry for the delay I was out of the office for a few days.
In some cases, I had to export the fle from Captivate, update the file, and then import the new file and replace the old.
I am using Captivate 5.5 so I cant update the path for multiple items at the same time. I had to select the image in the library, click the Properties icon (to the right of the pencil) and click update to link the file ot a different directory/folder. I had ot make sure I was not mapped to the drive/folder for which the item was currently linked; otherwise it would just update to the existing path.
Hope this helps,
