Adobe Captivate likes to confirm your actions... a lot. Attempting to delete a slide object? Captivate will prompt you to confirm the action. Deleting audio? Confirm it. Removing something from the Timeline? Confirm it.
Confirm it! Confirm it!!
I can confirm that the frequent confirmation requests can make me a little nuts. In the image below, I'm attempting to delete an unwanted slide from my Filmstrip. And... confirm... confirm.
While it's simple enough to click the silly OK button to confirm an action, I'd had enough, selected Don't ask me this again and then clicked the OK button.
From that point forward, I wasn't prompted to confirm my action whenever I deleted a slide. Awesome!
At some point I dropped a pen on my keyboard. The pen hit the [delete] key. I didn't think anything of it until a few days later when I realized a slide had been deleted from the project. What? I hadn't deleted it... I swear. But then I remembered the dropped pen. Since I told Captivate not to bother me, Captivate hadn't. The slide was good and gone... awesome! If only Captivate argued with me when I disabled that not-so-annoying confirmation message. Oh to be annoyed!
While I'm not a fan of the Confirmation Messages, I think you'll agree that turning them off can be a mistake. If you've already disabled them (via the Don't ask me this again check box), here is how you get all of the Confirmation Messages back.
Display Captivate's Preferences (Edit menu if you're using Windows; Adobe Captivate menu if you're using a Mac). From the General Settings category, click the Confirmation Messages button.
The Confirmation Messages dialog box opens. Anything without a check mark has been deactivated. All you need to do is select the confirmation message you want back and click the OK button.
If you would like to see a video demonstration of restoring Captivate's confirmation messages, check out the video I created on the IconLogic YouTube channel.
Note: You can reset all of the confirmation messages at once (and reset all of Captivate's Preferences in the bargain), you can use the Reset Preferences utility that I've written about previously.
