Topic: SWF files not working when PowerPoint published with Presenter

I created a captivate file with rollover when test and / or publish this file everything works fine.
I pull the SWF file into my PowerPoint and test using slide show mode, again everything works fine.

once I publish my presenter file the same SWF file the rollovers don't work anymore.
any ideas?

sbalk,

What version of Captivate are you using?  Did you publish to AS2 or AS3 (if using Captivate 4).  If you are using Captivate 5 - it only publishes to AS3.  As a reminder, Presenter currently only publishes to AS2 (and the two ActionScript versions aren't compatible - so you can't load an AS2 file into an AS3 file or vice-versa).

Regards,

Andrew

thanks your for your reply,
is there any way to convert my captivate 5 (AS3) output to AS2?

Re: SWF files not working when PowerPoint published with Presenter

I am not aware of any way to 'convert' (or publish) Captivate 5 files to AS2. Captivate 4 and earlier allow you to publish to AS2.  I would suspect that Presenter will be supporting AS3, shortly, but I really don't have any information on if/when that will occur.
