I don't quite understand your question.

Are you talking about resizing all contents in a published Captivate project?  That is, have you already built the project at a certan size and then found that it is too large now?

Thank you for fast response. @Lilybiri @RodWard. Great support. I would like to provide users with oportunity to enter thay date of birth by choosing the values from drop down lists:

  • Drop down list for day
  • Drop dow list for month
  • Drop down list for year. 

When I insert default drop down list in slide and resize it to be smaller, in Preview mode or published mode those buttons in drop down list are much larger than I would like to be. Is there any way for me to resize those buttons and mubers in the list to be much much... smaller?

 

Hope this explanation is much clearer?

Thank you again.

Are you using a Text Entry Box or the Dropdown learning interaction for your goal? Maybe you could insert one or more screenshots? You talk abou 'buttons' and 'numbers'. Numbers will be in the dropdown list but what do you mean by the 'buttons'?

I'm using drop down learning interactions. I'm talking about button with arrow. When I'm in editing mode for drop down, text might be reduced to minimal size of 8. I would like to resizeto smaller value and I would like to be able to rezise that button with arrow to be smaller. Thanks again.

Learning Interactions are limited in what you can do.  The options to customise them do not allow you very much leeway.  Sorry.

I am sorry but that screenshot is so blurry that I cannot figure out how you got that button when using a Learning interaction.  Not so recently I wrote a blog about what is possible with that interaction, but am not sure it could help. It was still before the demise of the Flash Player:

Why did you not try to use a Text Entry Box in this case?  Or even a Scrolling text interaction?
