I typed captions, but they're not showing up when I test the slide show. Help!

do you see a button for "show captions"?

Nevermind, I fixed it myself. If anyone else wants to know how to add captions, you just add them under template and they show up automatically.

I'm still having trouble getting my captions showing up, even when I mark the "show captions" option. I'm not sure what to do..

did you type captions on each slide at the tab marked "slide info" and the sub-tab "captions"?

How do you italicize words in the captions? ( I have the demo PC version...)

You can't do ital in any version, but that's ok b/c it's hard to read on the Web anyway.

I'm having the same problem with the captions- I have the show captions box marked and I wrote in my captions under slide info- caption- but they don't show up when I play the slideshow...

I think I have it. Are they just not showing up in SoundSlides itself? Try exporting and testing in a browser.

Ok, this may be a dumb question, but how do I export it and test it in a browser?
When I hit export it brings up a lot of files

Don't hit export. Just hit test and I think it should work.

do we have to have captions ?

Depends on the nature of your slideshow. Some images are self-evident without captions. But the vast majority will have captions.

Whenever I attempt to add a lower thirds attribution, it overlaps the photo credit that I put in the caption space. Is there a way to change the location on the screen of either of these?

I'm guessing it's b/c people don't often use both captions and lower thirds. But you can easily ask them a question at http://support.soundslides.com/
