In the image below, I've drawn two objects on a Captivate slide. Clearly the object on the left is much larger than the one on the right. I'd like both objects to be the same size. In fact, I'd like the smaller object to grow larger to match the size of the object at the left.
While it might be tempting to delete the image on the right and simply duplicate the existing object, there is a little-used option in Captivate that I'd like to share.
Select the objects you'd like to be the same size and choose Modify > Align > Resize to the same size.
And bam... you get this:
What's that you say... you got this?
Take a look at the very first image above and notice that the object on the left has white resizing handles. In the image directly above, the object on the right has the white resizing handles.
When aligning or resizing multiple slide objects, the object you select first becomes the anchor. The anchor will neither move nor resize when you apply Captivate's align and/or resize commands. In the first image, the object on the left is the anchor; in the image above, the object on the right is the anchor.
Spend some time with Captivate's align and resize commands (via the Modify menu or by right-clicking. Among the standard align and resize options, you'll also find some handy slide-alignment options. These options can prove handy should you want, for instance, selected objects to be perfectly centered on a slide.
