** UPDATE ** The fix for this issue is now a part of Flash 10.1. Simply install the latest version of Flash.
Today the Flash Player team released an update to Flash Player 10 ActiveX, which addresses this issue among other things. Please download and install Flash
Player 10 ActiveX (Internet Explorer) and restart Adobe Captivate 4.

Remains are left for legacy record. Do not bother with the italic bit, just install the above update to Flash or newer.
After upgrading to Flash Player 10.1, you may notice that imported Powerpoint images and SWF animations appear smaller in the Edit area and Storyboard. The issue does not affect published content. This issue affects authoring space appearance of several Captivate objects, like the FMR animations, text animations, any third party animations and widgets. We are investigating this issue.
At this point we are recommending the following work around. Un-install Flash Player 10.1 using “Start: Control Panel: Add or Remove Programs,” restart your computer and then install the previous version of Flash Player – 10.0.45.2.
Please follow the following steps:
1. Go to Settings, Control Panel (On Windows XP)
2. Open Add/Remove Programs dialog.
3. Select Adobe Flash Player 10 ActiveX and click ‘Remove’ button.
4. Once the un-installation is complete, re-start your computer.
5. Open your browser and go to this link – http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/142/tn_14266.html
6. Under “Archived Versions” section, click on Flash Player 10 link and download the zip file containing all the Flash Player 10 exes.
7. Extract the zip file and then select 10r45_2 folder.
8. Inside this folder, double-click on flashplayer10r45_2_winax.exe to install Flash Player ActiveX.
If you have any difficulty with the preceding steps.
1. If you are not able to install this version of Flash Player then follow the link http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/141/tn_14157.html in your browser.
2. Click on Windows: uninstall_flash_player.exe
3. Save this uninstaller on your machine and run it to do a clean un-install.
4. Try to run flashplayer10r45_2_winax.exe to install Flash Player ActiveX once again. (Beginning with Step 4 above.)
