    "Great new features in Captivate 7!"

    January 29, 2014   |   By bajenkins

    Version: Adobe Captivate 5.5

    Pros

    Ability to create drag-and-drop interactions
    The addition of multiple interaction tools, such as tabbed lists and glossaries
    Built in themes
    On-screen simulation recording with ability to record as videos or training demos
    Enhanced audio editing features (compared to previous versions)

    Cons

    Some of the interaction tools are not as modern as other eLearning programs, and the styles need improvement. Still, there is flexibility built into the software to modify the look of the interactions.

    Summary

    Overall, great product!

    "Great teaching tool if you devote time to learn it."

    May 18, 2012   |   By Zaqueo

    Version: Adobe Captivate 5.5

    Pros

    Simple and direct in creating Quizzes and lessons
    Great user's support.
    Has numerous advance(script and variables)capabilities
    Multi-platform delivery (windows, mac)
    If using it commercially, then the price is right
    No problem with WIN 7-64
    Almost limitless as a teaching tool

    Cons

    Limitation on Quiz slides unless you use the advance interaction.

    Summary

    I've been using Captivate since CP4, CP5.5 is an incredible step up in ease of use, performance and advance functions. I did not use CP4 commercially because of numerous limitations, but CP5 offers so much that I started migrating most of my publications to SWF and FLV for the Windows and Mac platforms. Great work Adobe

    "Very disappointed, poor performance, limited capability"

    December 13, 2011   |   By yipiyayo

    Version: Adobe Captivate 5.5

    Pros

    Able to convert commonly used PowerPoint presentation into static image and include the questions created by build-in quiz function
    Able to create video tutorials for software.

    Cons

    Poor performance
    Timeline hide/show and lock always behave incorrectly
    No zoom to display canvas
    Cannot lock objects
    Cannot group objects
    Align tools don't behave accordingly at times
    Rollover for image is different from buttons
    No drawing tools, to create even a simple rectangle.(Basic shapes)
    Cannot have interactive object in master slide

    Summary

    Basically its exactly the same as a PowerPoint, just with added video export and quizzes.
    Its a program meant for dummy who can't use more powerful application for better interactivity.
    If its just for simple animation, video tutorial or presentation with add-on quiz capability, use it.
    Otherwise there's plenty better other tools out there.
    The money is just not worth when you can make do with simple PowerPoint presentation.
