If you're a Captivate developer working with non-Captivate developers, you may be asked to share some of your project assets so those assets can be used in other applications.
I had a PowerPoint developer ask to use one of the audio clips in my Captivate project in his PowerPoint presentation. If I had access to the file on my hard drive or server, it would have been simple enough to email the file to him as an attachment. Unfortunately, my Captivate project was pretty old, and I no longer had access to the original clip that I had imported onto one of my Captivate slides.
Fortunately, there is a handy feature within Captivate that saved the day. First, I opened the Captivate Library (Window > Library). Next, I right-clicked the audio clip and chose Export.
From this point it was a simple matter of picking a save location and then emailing the file to the PowerPoint developer. Had the developer shared my network, I could have easily exported the file to a shared folder on a network drive and saved the email step.
Keep in mind that you can export any Library asset (images, animation, etc). And if someone has provided assets for you, you can use the Import menu item (shown just above Export in the image above) and import multiple assets at once.
Note: If you'd like to watch the Export process, check out this short video recently posted to the IconLogic YouTube channel. The video was created using Captivate's Video Demonstration mode.
