Released by eHelp Corporation as RoboDemo more than two decades ago, today's Adobe Captivate was also a Macromedia product between 2004 and 2006. In 2022, Adobe Captivate switched to a subscription-only model. Now, version 12.3 arrives with new features in the export/import area, image editing, accesibility enchancements, and more.

On the first day of March, Adobe announced a new update to a product that has been around for over two decades and was owned by two other brands before ending up with Adobe. Adobe Captivate was first eHelp Corporation's RoboDemo, becoming a Macromedia product called Captivate in 2004. In February 2022, Adobe Captivate dropped perpetual licenses and moved on to a subscription-only model. The latest version, labeled 12.3, arrives with quite a few changes.

According to the company's blog post regarding Adobe Captivate 12.3, the team behind it aims to push this piece of code higher than before. These are the highlights of the update:

  • Project sharing for review via Adobe Cloud. Reviewers don't need a license to access and provide feedback on the course.
  • Import questions from CSV files alongside import/export capabilities that apply to closed captions.
  • Enhanced image editing tools, such as slide background and image content block.
  • Theme enhancements get the ability to reset projects.
  • Quick start projects from the launch page of the application, featuring templates pre-designed for various needs.
  • The ability to obtain a PDF version of the certificates after completing the test (for learners).
  • More components to include in simulation slides, as well as titles and subtitles for every content block.

New users can enjoy a free 30-day trial, while pricing starts at $33.99 per month for a single subscription for individuals, with multiple options for teams, enterprises, or educational institutions. Regardless the future plans of any new Adobe Captivate user, Kevin Siegel's Adobe Captivate 12: The Essentials can surely provide a good start.
