.cptl File Extension

Developer: Adobe Systems
File type: Adobe Captivate Project Template File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .cptl. Files with the file extension .cptl can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .cptl files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .cptl file?

Adobe Captivate project template files are encoded with proprietary specifications and saved in the CPTL format. These CPTL files are affixed with the .cptl extension and are classified as data files used by version 6 of the Adobe Captivate software. Adobe Systems developed the .cptl format and the Adobe Captivate 6 software, an application designed to provide users with features meant for creating interactive multimedia materials used in eLearning environments. The content of these CPTL files are usually text outlining details, formatting attributes and page layout elements among other object embedding specifications implemented and saved by the authors of the CPTL files. These attributes and formatting elements can then be used by the Adobe Captivate 6 software to provide users with a quick and easy way to generate multiple documents integrated with the same formatting and page layout attributes, and these newly created documents can be saved in the CPTX project file format. Microsoft Windows users can use the Adobe Captivate 6 application to create new CPTL files and edit the content of existing CPTL project template files. Mac users can also install the version of Adobe Captivate 6 developed for these platforms.

how to open a .cptl file?

Launch a .cptl file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .cptl file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .cptl files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .cptl file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .cptl file will open the correct application.

Adobe Captivate 6

Adobe Captivate 6

Adobe Captivate 6 is an e-learning software that lets a user author different interactive electronic learning and HTML5 based mLearning contents with pre-installed images, widgets and themes. It is made to help create projects and demonstrations in different ways like HD and application simulations. This program has the functionality to import Microsoft PowerPoint slideshow presentations in any eLearning projects too, but only files from Microsoft PowerPoint 2010. It implies the use of animations, multimedia and other objects in PowerPoint that can be showed in an e-learning project file. In fact, it allows the synchronization of projects from both Adobe Captivate and Microsoft PowerPoint using the linked import tool. There are themes available to select from in creating an elearning project, with the option to start a design from scratch. It also has Master Slides that can provide a more formatted and presentable content. The user interface is made simple for easy and convenient use of the program. In addition, Captivate 6 is compatible with Windows and Mac OS X, as well as other devices like iPad since it can be used for podcasts and screencasts when converted into Adobe Flash file format.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .cptl files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .cptl. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
