Hello all --

I was hoping someone out there has experience inserting Flash into

Here's the problem:

I am able to insert the .swf using PowerPoint's Control Toolbox. When I
run the show, everything works fine. However, once I save and reopen the
presentation, the Flash object no longer appears. It is still present in
that if I mouse over the area and right-click, a list of Flash options

When I open the properties window, the Play option has defaulted to
False, which I assume is the problem.

Can anyone offer any help as to why the Play option defaults to False or
another reason why the objects no longer appear?

Not sure if this matters, but I used Captivate to generate the Flash

Thank you in advance,
