Copying a Button and Timing Tip

This will just be a quick tip post for folks new to Captivate.

In some of my projects, I use a “Continue” button that I adapted from another resource in illustrator. It is saved in my image buttons folder so I can access it anytime I am needing it in a project. (I will do another tip post showing this process.)

My typical workflow is to create the “Continue” button on the first slide then copy and paste it to the remaining pages that need the next button. Here is the workflow I use. I have used this in both Captivate 9 projects and now more recently on Captivate 2019 (all version updates).

First I select “Interactions” and choose the “Button” option.

This will import the default button onto the project page.

Then I select the button and navigate to the Style Tab. I click on the text button to activate the drop-down menu which presents me with the option to change the text button to an “Image button”.
