If the text were created as symbols. Anything that was created as a symbol can be edited and it will change
whereever it was used in the Movie. If I understand the question.

recreate the bmp at the size it should be and "update" in the bmp properties in FLash.
Flash created objects can be scaled down "onion skin", Select all, scale numeric.
Theres different techniques on doing this and it can get complicated depending on the
structure of the movie, but without knowing the structure I can only give you a general idea.

If your trying to open the new window from within FLash,
try Colin Mook's tutorial on hidden frame routine. This supports IE3+ and NS 3+
and bypasses the "live connect" problems.
Dont have the URL handy, but its around.

"Select All", break apart image.(break apart until "break apart" option os greyed out.
This will give you full editing control over the image.
