I fell in love with Captivate 5 the moment I started the program. The user interface (UI) was a vast improvement over every legacy versions of the program. Looking back on my experience with Captivate 5, I have few complaints. Honestly, Captivate 5 is really, really good and there's not much to gripe about.
That being said, I do have a few pet peeves in Captivate 5. For instance, what's up with the color contrast (or should I say the lack of contrast)? If you take a look at the Timeline of any slide, you'll see that the contrast between objects on the Timeline leaves plenty to be desired.
Check out the image below. If you're like me, the color contrast between one object on the Timeline isn't very good at all. For instance, the difference between the pale green color used for interactive objects (the Button and the Text Entry Box) and the light blue (used for captions and animations) are too similar. If your display's contrast is off just a bit, it will be difficult for you to tell one object group from the other. And in the image below, the click box object (fourth down the list) is selected. However, the contrast between the gray list at the left and the only slightly darker gray highlight color makes it somewhat difficult to see which of the Timeline objects is actually selected.
So along comes Captivate 5.5 and now there's one less pet peeve in the world. As you can see in the image below, Adobe overhauled the Timeline colors. Now you can clearly see the interactive objects (dark green) from the static objects (blue). With a simple glance at the left side of the Timeline, you'll know that the click box object is selected. Nice job Adobe!
If you have Captivate pet peeves, let me know. I'm happy to share them here with other skills and drills readers.
