Using the timeline to show and hide objects

In the Timeline panel, next to the Lock/Unlock icons, are the Show/Hide icons (the eye icons). These icons work the exact same way as the Lock icons covered in the previous section. You can use them to hide objects from the slide. When the slide contains a large number of objects, the Show/Hide option can help you select and work with the correct objects while keeping the others out of the way. Note that hiding an object with this tool hides it from the Captivate interface only, not from the final project that will be viewed by the students.
