Object Hyperlinks to other slides are directing to wrong slide.

I've got a series of two-slide pairs, the first slide has a thumbnail icon that when clicked on goes to the second slide and displays a demonstration of system behavior described in the first slide.

I have double and tripled checked these hyperlinks and they should work but they keep linking to other slides seemingly at random. I am using transparent rectangles that sit atop the original text list of the slides.

Any idea what could cause this?

just wanted to say that I figured out what the problemwas. Each of
'nested' SWF slides that were accessed via thumbnails had
similarfilenames... by saving each of the swf's with distinct different
names andreinserting, the publish process works and everything has been


So that said...


PROTIP: Never use the same filename for multiple SWF files imported into a PowerPoint/Articulate presentation.
