Captivate Shortcuts

Captivate Shortcuts

Shortcuts are a great way to speed up your development and when you get to know the main ones you can use in your day-to-day work, it will make a huge difference in your workflow.

I found this link,, which has all of the shortcuts for Adobe Captivate and seems to work on different versions (tested on version 8 and 2017). I’m still going through all of them and if there’s anything that doesn’t work, I’ll let you know.

I’m using shortcuts more and more in my work and here are some of my favourites so far:

Control+Shift+C — This is for creating a new text caption.

Control+C — This is for copying

Control+V — This is for pasting

Control+D — This is for duplicating

Control+Alt+T — Show or hide the timeline

Control+Shift+V — Insert video

Control+Shift M –Insert Image

Control+W — Closing your current project

I noticed the insert video and insert image shortcuts weren’t correct on the link as you need to press Control+Shift+V or M.

These are just a few I’ve gotten to know really well through practice and I’m building them up more as I go.
