- Choose File > Publish Settings.
The Captivate Preferences dialog box will open. By default, none of the project resources will be externalized, meaning you will end up with fewer, but larger output files.
- Select the resource you'd like to externalize and click the OK button.
- Publish the lesson as a SWF.
If you open the folder containing your published files, you'll notice that three is no longer the magic number. You'll end up with three plus the number of resource files you requested. Keep in mind that when uploading your lesson to your web server, all of these files must be kept together, and in the same folder. Leave one of the resources behind, and the lesson will not play at all.
