…Text captions are probably the most important thing you'll use…in Captivate to convey information and instruction to your user.…In this lesson, we'll adjust some of the text captions that Captivate added…in for us during our recording, and we'll add some new ones as well.…We'll also look at some easy ways to style many captions at once.…Now let me say right off that you might…have noticed that this movie is a little bit long.…Well, in this course I'm trying to show you what it takes to build a…Captivate project software simulation from the ground…up and sometimes it takes a long time.…
So, this is a little bit realistic.…So, I'm going to just go through the project slide by…slide and adjust the captions that Captivate has entered in for us.…So I'll start with slide four.…The first one after our introduction slide.…Now here the user is expected to click…to simulate selecting a cell in the Excel spreadsheet.…So we've also got a click box on the screen for them to click on.…There's also a Failure caption incase they happen to click on the wrong spot.…
