Remove Unused Assets

When you add a file to a project's library, a copy of that file is made within the Captivate project's file. If you have a lot of assets, it can make a project's file size pretty big. Removing assets that you're not using will help keep the project's file size as small as possible.

  1. Click the Select Unused Items button in the Library panel.
  2. Click the Delete button.
    Remove Unused Assets
  3. Click Yes.
