Timeline - length

Apr 01, 2012

Hi All,

I have one engage file with audio which length is 7 seconds and when I import this to Presenter and publish, then timeline shows total length is 12 seconds.but I want it to show only 7 seconds in timeline.

Any solution to show only the actual seconds in timeline?

And also I tried "Interaction Property" in engage but in PlayBack Mode I am not able to select last option which is "Presentation - interaction advances by itself" - if I select this option I get an error, please refer attached screen shot.

Hi Yuna!

You can try the methods described in this article to reduce the length of your slide, otherwise we'd be happy to have you send us the files so we can check it out on our end. First, create an Articulate Presenter Package of your presentation as described here. Then upload the resulting zip file from your computer on the second page of this form, and we''ll attempt to diagnose what's happening when we receive your upload. Thanks!
