Indeed this is one of the improvements brought about by Captivate 5. I don't believe a workaround exists other than downgrading to 4.
I think your only recourse is to either revert to 4 to make those edits or to file a Bug Report/Feature Request asking Adobe to consider adding back the functionality into 6.

Thank you Rick,
I was afraid of that. Generally, I like Captivate 5, but a few of the changes are somewhat frustrating. This is one of them. I have filed both a feature enhancement and a bug report for this.
After looking at the Object Style Manager I had the thought that a really nice enhancement would be to be able to create Style Profiles that could be globally applied to a Project.
For example, have a means to group various Captions, Buttons, Templates, etc into a Named Style. Create several of these and be able to apply them to projects and make changes to all the elements within the project. It would certainly streamline converting old projects with an old style into an updated style.
Thank you for your reply,
Yes, you are correct, the Export (document to Word) -> Change (document) -> Import (changed Word file) into Project does not work like it did in (all) earlier versions of Captivate.
In earlier versions I could Export the Captions to a Word document, alter List formatting and apply various symbols to bullet list, then Import the (changed) Captions into a project and have (visually) interesting bullet lists. As an example, I could change the "disk" bullet to "check mark" and my list items would have check marks. I could do this with any font I chose. My team where I work really liked this. It made the lessons a little less boring.
Now I have to figure out a work around.
One other thing, I could also change the font characteristice in the Captions, such as color, font style, font type, etc and the import would come in true. Now it is as if the Export/Import feature does nothing.
Export/Import will change the content of the captions, but the formatting is now 'obedient' to the object styles applied.
The text engine is totally different from previous CP-versions, and previous there were no object styles. So formatting cannot be changed by copy/paste or the 'styles' concept would be lost.
I agree that being able to have more bullet symbols would be welcome and some other formatting possibilities, have been asking for them as well.
