When creating a template (you can learn how by attending my 3-hour mini course on building templates), you'll likely need to add colors that meet your corporate brand. Fortunately, it's easy to create color swatches in Captivate and reuse them again and again.
To create a custom swatch, create or select an existing text caption. On the Properties Inspector, Character group, click Color.
In the Color panel, click Swatches.
At the right of the Swatches window, click Open Swatch Manager.
Click Pick Color.
Pick a color or mix your own and then click the OK button.
After clicking the OK button, you will be prompted to name your new swatch.
Once you have created your swatch, it will appear on the Swatch Manager.
The next time you click Color on the Properties Inspector, your custom swatch will be available for use. You can create as many swatches as you need; and if you create the swatches in a project template, the swatches will appear in any new projects that are based on the template.
