Hi, sorry to bother you all with what is a tiny problem compared to the complicated stuff that you guys deal with!
I experiencing problems inserting my shockwave flash animations into powerpoint presentations.
I have done it loads of times before by
1. capturing the swf file
2. saving the file into the necessary folder
3. activating and using the control toolbox (crossed hammer & spanner)
4. clicking "shockwave flash object"
5. drawing the the box with the crosshairs
6. right clicking on the box and selecting "properties"
7. the properties box appears
BUT .... the "custom ..." option (opens a "properties pages" window)which used to appear at the very top no longer appears and I've shuddered to a stop
Am I missing something obvious? How can I re-gain the "custom ..." button or how can I get around it?
Thank you all

See if this helps:
Control Toolbox Icons

On the Control Toolbox toolbar, look for the icon in the bottom right corner that looks like an hammer and wrench. This is the More Controls button.

1.Click the More Controls button.

2.Scroll in the alphabetical list of objects and click on Shockwave Flash Object. Your mouse cursor will change to a + (plus sign).
