Hyperlinks issue

Hi,

I am trying to figure this hyperlink issue out. I am converting current PPT decks to Presenter, and there is a menu slide and from there, it links out to different part of the PPT. Here is my confusion, says I have 2 buttons in this menu slide. The first button links to slide without title and it works fine in the preview. The second button links to slide without the title too and it does not work at all. Can someone help me figure out why? Just to throw a curve ball, I did a quick experiment with totally new PPT deck, and with the same scenario, it works totally fine. So, I am really stumped with this. Any suggestions are welcome.

Hi Benny,

Hyperlinks you include in PowerPoint will be respected in your published output. However, not all hyperlink options are supported in Presenter.  For more details, please see this helpful article

Also, be sure to test your content in its intended environment: Web server, LMS, Articulate Online, or CD. If you are testing your content locally, publish for CD. Testing hyperlinks in Preview is not supported. You will need to Publish your presentation for proper testing.

Hi Peter,

Thank you for your reply. Still though it does not answer why it works fine with "start from scratch" PPT deck. Meanwhile, the existing PPT deck is not. What I did it just link them using the Hyperlink method, and I linked them by pointing to the slide number (no slide title). This really puzzle me.

Unfortunately, the PPT deck that i worked on right now contains proprietary information. Btw, i found the workaround that I am not really "proud" of. Basically deleted the old slide and insert new slide with the same contents from the old slide. That works. Not sure why but this just weird.
