In my Captivate project, once I have published, there is the appearance of the items before they then appear within their animations on the slide.
The item will briefly appear for a split second and then it will fade in or do whatever the animation that I have set up for it.
What causes this and are there any known bugs and solutions?
A very old pain... no idea what causes this.
There are a couple of workaround, but I don't know exactly what you mean by 'animation'. I suspect you talk about one or more applied effects? Which type of effect and which type of 'item'. Shapes are very sensitive to this.
Thanks so much for the quick reply
Applied effects. And some of them are fade ins. And they are set to happen automatically. And they are usually .png files.
