I have a Captivate 8 published file that is 16.9 MB. When the slide gets to a certain point the button starts working very slowly before it goes to the next slide. Sometimes it stops working all together.

It's published as a swf and html 5. Might this be a loading issuse with the swf?

I would check the slides to make sure that you don't have some pausing / playtime that needs to playout before going to the next slide after clicking the button. I have had much larger projects that do not have that issue.

When I do discover something along the lines of what you describe - I need to check the slide play time relative to the pause points.

Thank you for your response.

I do not see any pause in the timeline as of yet.

Do you think it might be due to the fact that I have so many duplicate slides? One for manager and one for non manager?

If you recall from my previously long thread, I was doing branching. I have to do the duplicate slides because I am not up to speed with the advanced actions.

I am making great progress, but even if I were to get it right I have to be able to hand this project off to someone in the future, and they do not know advanced actions.

So my question again is, do you think it's due to the multiple slides? I don't see why it would be. Each slide has it's own Jump To Action.

While I have not experienced that myself, I have read on the forums about others who have with explanations referring to issues that come up when you do lots of duplicating or copy/pasting - so I suppose it is possible but I cannot confirm.

NOT duplication, ONLY copy/paste.

I agree. Copying and pasting definitely makes for problems. Perhaps this is what I did to corrupt the file, if it's even corrupted at all.

It was the duplicate slide that was causing the problem. I deleted the duplicate slides and kept only the original version. It works fine now.

So I'm wondering what I do from here?

Stay tuned.

I might recommend beginning to study hard on the usage of variables and advanced actions.

It will be worth the time spent.

Yes I have begun to do that.

I started creating new duplicate slides again hoping the corrupt files were done away with. Sadly, the same thing is happening...

If I grouped the duplicates into one section and the other sections into one group and had the button go to next slide do you think that would stop the issue of the slides slowing down?

I am not 100% sure what you mean by that but if the duplicates are the issue, I don't think simply rearranging them will matter.

Turns out when I had the manager slides in one group and the non manager slides in another group, and I removed the jump to slides and replaced them with Go To The Next Slide it fixed the problem.

I should not have had a Manager Slide then a Non Manager Slide in the first place. All the Jump To Slides caused Captivate to freeze. There simply were too many Jump To Slides.
