TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
This isn't possible in Captivate. Captivate doesn't provide any drawing
tools to use. However, with a bit of creativity, you could certainly create
a few different arrow images that could be strategically placed and combined
with other caption styles and whatnot.
For creating your own customized caption styles, try the following link.

Subject: RE: Anyone here use Captivate?
Ok- I realized I should just send one of my questions here- the most
important one-- does anyone know how to "draw" in Captivate? I do not
want to use the pre-set captions that have a little pointy arrow-like
tip. I actually want a caption with an arrow that I draw, going from the
text box to the place the user needs to click...
