All About New interface of Adobe Captivate 8

Adobe Captivate 8 is the latest version of the widely used rapid authoring tool, Adobe Captivate. It has a user-friendly interface that is simple and allows you to work without any hassles. I really enjoy working with Adobe Captivate 8.

Here, in this blog, I am going to explain the features of this latest version.

The Welcome screen has six options with thumbnails. By using these options, you can create projects by selecting the options that match your requirement.

Before selecting the option, assign the dimentions for your selected template. The option is placed below on the left side. From the drop down, select the default sizes of the project or else we can select our own dimentions in the custom option.
