Chapter 2. Creating Captivate Movies > Setting a Movie's Mouse Options

Setting a Movie's Mouse Options

When a movie is playing, the mouse is usually moving around the screen if mouse movement has been captured. As the mouse moves, the cursor, called a pointer in Captivate, changes depending on the action being undertaken. You can modify how the mouse moves as well its speed, its sound, its visibility, and even the color used when something is clicked. You can even change the path of the mouse from one slide to the next and the shape of the mouse's path from curved to straight and vice versa.

To change the mouse pointer

1.
In Storyboard view, click Mouse in the “Slide tasks” area to open the Mouse Options pop-down menu.

2.
Select either Project Pointers or Current Theme Pointers.

You can use the Project pointers (Figure 2.31) to change the pointer used in the slide.

Figure 2.31. Project pointers enable you to customize the pointer used in the movie.


The Current Theme pointers (Figure 2.32) are the ones that your computer uses.

Figure 2.32. Current Theme pointers are based upon those used in the operating system.


3.
When the pop-up menu of pointers appears, select a pointer by clicking it.
