Have you ever visited the Preferences dialog box in Adobe Captivate (Windows users, Edit > Preferences; Mac users, Adobe Captivate > Preferences), made several changes and later, maybe months later, needed those settings on another computer running Captivate? I'm betting your answer is yes, and you've had a tough time ensuring the Preferences in one project match those in another.
- Open a Captivate project and set your Preferences.
- Choose File > Export > Preferences to open the Save As dialog box.
- Pick a save destination for the Preferences file and, in the File Name field, give the file a name. (Note: The Preferences are exported as a .cpr file.)
- Click Save.
- Open another Captivate project (or create a new project).
- Choose File > Import > Preferences.
- Locate and open the .cpr file you exported.
After the import process, browse the Preferences in the project. You'll notice that most (but not all) of the Preferences exported from the first project have been imported into the current project.
Note: If you'd like to see the process of working with a project's Preferences, check out my video demonstration on our YouTube channel.
