I have used Adobe Captivate since it was first release in 2006 (technically that was in fact version 2, with version 1 being called Macromedia Captivate). However for various reasons I haven't had the opportunity to use Captivate with my work recently…although I have always kept an eye on each iteration that Adobe has released.
With a recent contract as an Instructional Designer/Trainer for the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, I was able to get back into Adobe Captivate for the first time in around 5 years. It was great to be using such a superb tool again, but also frustrating to find that many of the quirks of the program remain after all these years.
During the course of my work I spent some time noting down my frustrations, which I am going to discuss here.
