You won't be able to control the SWF playback with Advanced Actions in Captivate. They're a bit limited in that respect.
If you have access to an ActionScript developer, they might be able to create a solution for you. AS3 is much more powerful than Advanced Actions.
Your query seems to suggest that you have tried inserting these SWF animations in your project already and that there is a "pause button" on the SWF. In most SWF animations that I've created in Flash and inserted into Captivate projects, the pause button on the main project also pauses the animation at the same time.
So if your SWF is NOT pausing, it might be something to do with the way it was created. Were these SWFs created in Flash or some other application?
The swfs were created in CP5. These are steps in a software simulation that we are including in another CP5 project.

OK. So you're NESTING Captivate SWFs inside other Captivate SWFs.
Issues arising from this practice have been mentioned many times on this forum.
The best advice I can give you is NEVER DO THIS. As you're already finding out, having one Captivate Playbar sitting inside another Captivate SWF with its own playbar is a recipe for disaster.
Add your simulation slides to the main project, not as a nested SWF.
Hi Rod, I've just run into a handful of headaches (CP 5.5) trying to embed CP project swfs into another CP project. Do you know whether this compatibility has been addressed in CP6?
No I don't, and personally, if I were Adobe, I wouldn't bother making this possible. There are just too many ways it could come back to bite them.
My best advice to you is DON'T do this.
working fine in CP 6,i would request you to try that in CP 6 and take a look if that works ok.Please make a backup of your project before you open your cp 5 project in cp 6
