KCWebPlaza's Enhancement Pack for Adobe Captivate contains an extenstive library of media files that integrates directly with Adobe Captivate.  Developers can use these media elements - which include buttons, text captions, backgrounds, control bars, sounds, icons, shapes, and more - to enhance the visual design and training effectiveness of their Adobe Captivate solutions.

The Enhancement Pack is specifically designed to integrate directly with Adobe Captivate. We've taken great care to both produce and package the product to ensure using this product for your Adobe Captivate solutions are as easy as possible - including file format, transparancy, file size, and file naming conventions, and folder location.

During installation the Enhancement Pack files are copied into the appropriate folders of Captivate Program Files directories. This makes all of the Enhancement Pack resources available within the standard Captivate authoring menus. For example, to insert a button or text caption from the Enhancement Pack simply select Insert > Button.. or Insert > Text Caption.. To insert a background, arrow, number, square, icon, or circle, select Insert > Image.. and browse to Enhancement Pack folder located within Captivate's default Gallery folder.

Color Scheme

Our 11-color color scheme was designed to improve the contrast and readability of your design elements. The vibrant colors are coordinated within an organized technical color pattern - so they can be used alone or mixed together within the same presentation or slide.

Demo Version

We've packaged a demo version of the Enhancement Pack so you can install it and try out the features. The demo version of the Enhancement Pack includes a sample of ALL of the resource types (captions, buttons, circles, sounds, etc).


Why Use the Enhancement Pack?

  • Professionalism. The Enhancement Pack design elements can improve the overall look of your Captivate projects and dramatically increasing the visual impact of your presentations. The design elements Captivate includes in the default installation are functional, but suffer from poor visual appeal.
  • Usability. Have you ever thought your text captions did not stand out from the other design elements or system screens behind them well enough? Our color scheme provides 11 vibrant colors that improves the contrast within your slides. Your end-users will appreciate the impact of the Enhancement Pack can make.
  • Consistency. Let's say you want to use our green color scheme. At your fingertips you'll have pre-built backgrounds, captions, a custom control bar, squares, numbers, circles, icons, numbers, bullets.. etc. all using the exact same color.
  • Creativity. Without having some of these design elements available, you might not have thought about providing certain features for your end-users. For example - by placing the included numbers next to a series of form fields that the user will enter data into, you provide the user with a visual reference that reinforces your instructions.
  • Efficiency. All of our design elements integrate directly into the standard menus and property dialogs within Captivate - allowing you to steamline your workflow and development cycles.
