During our live, online beginner Adobe Captivateclass, you learn about previewing your project pretty quickly. You will find the following menu items in the Preview drop-down menu of a standard project: Play Slide, Project, Next 5 slides, In Browser, HTML5 in Browser, Preview in SCORM Cloud, and In Adobe Edge Inspect.
The two modes that I use the most are Next 5 slides and In Browser. Next 5 slides is awesome if you want to get a quick look at some of your slides but don't need to see them all; In Browser is great if you want to get a more acurate representation of what your published lesson will look like to a learner and test all of the interactivity.
It is worth noting that I mentioned the meu items you'll see in a standard project. If you're working on a Responsive Project, the Preview menu is a bit different. In the first image below you'll see the menu items I listed earlier. In the second image, notice that In Browser is missing along with HTML5 in Browser. Because Responsive Projects are only HTML5, prevewing a Responsive Project opens a web browser just like previewing a standard project In Browser.
