Join David Rivers for an in-depth discussion in this video Integrating with Captivate, part of RoboHelp 9 HTML Essential Training.
If you're familiar with Adobe Captivate, you know it's an excellent tool for…creating video or animations that could be used as help tools, and because it's…an Adobe product, it integrates well with Adobe RoboHelp.…So we're going to talk about inserting media files now into your project,…something that can augment the content people are seeing in your help system.…Let's go to the Browsing TOC book here.…We'll expand that and go to the Navigational Review topic, double-click that, and…you can see it's just plain old text.…We have our heading and a lot of text.…
Very boring. It might be useful information, but we can augment that now with some…media. That's what we're going to do. By clicking at the end and hitting Enter a…couple of times, we can create a little space between our content in the movie…that we're about to insert.…Well, that's the key word. We click the Insert menu and I want you to see there's…two options here that are identical:…Multimedia/Demo and Adobe Captivate Demo.…The one you choose will determine the types of files you're searching for--…

Q: When I insert the ActiveX Calendar control and try to hide the title by setting the ShowTitle property to false, the title is not removed and remains visible. Why is this happening?
A: There are many ActiveX controls available and many versions of a control may exist. Different versions of a control can behave differently. Certain properties may work in one version of a control and not in another. ActiveX controls can be installed on your computer by different programs other than RoboHelp, such as Microsoft Excel and Access. In this title, version 11.0 of the Calendar control is used. If you are using a different version of the Calendar control, the ShowTitle property may not work properly. Go to www.microsoft.com to learn more about ActiveX controls and their properties.
