If you need to show an object on several slides, you have a few options. First, you can copy and paste the desired objects onto each slide. The problem with this technique is potential updates down the road. If you need to move all of the objects to a different part of the slide, you will have to move the objects one at a time (not exactly efficient, especially if there are several slides containing the object).
Alternatively, you can place objects on a Captivate Master Slide. Once the Master Slide has been applied to any number of Filmstrip slides, the objects on the Master Slide will appear behind Filmstrip slide objects.
To demonstrate the awesome power of Adobe Captivate's master slides, I present you the square
and the star
shown in the image below (both shapes were created using Captivate's Shapes tool and positioned on a Filmstrip slide).
