  1. In the Document window, place the insertion point where you want to insert a Shockwave movie and do one of the following:
    • In the Common category of the Insert bar, click the Media button and select the Shockwave icon from the menu.This is a picture of the feature being described.
    • Select Insert > Media > Shockwave.
  2. In the dialog box that appears, select a movie file.
  3. In the Property inspector, enter the width and height of the movie in the W and H text boxes.
