It’s not exactly a new feature, but in reality it’s one of the things I like the most about Adobe Captivate 5.5.
In Adobe Captivate 5 the elements on the timeline were barely visible. I really have a hard time distinguishing between the different layers due to the color and very low opacity used.
In Adobe Captivate 5.5 they spiced up the colors so now it’s much more clear and easy to distinguish the layers from eachother.
Now all we need is to be able to define our own colors for the timeline elements. Currently “informational elements” such as text boxes, hightlight boxes, animations, videos and drawing objects are blue. “Interactive elements” such as rollovers, clickboxes, widgets and buttons are green and the mouse element is yellow/orange.
I would like to be able to define my own colors so I could make videos purple for example and widgets red. This would allow me as the developer to define my own scheme and give me a quicker way to identify objects on the timeline quickly.
