One slide prevents publishing

I am trying to publish a slide deck with Articulate.  The process stopped at slide 40 twice with the notice that Articulate had stopped working.  In addition, Power Point locked up and I had to use Task Manger to close.

When I removed the offending slide from the deck, all went well (except I am missing that slide!)

What can I look for in that slide that would cause the stoppage??

Using Power Point 2016 and Presenter Update 7

Thank you

Hi Peter!

Would you be able to re-create the slide so that it is included in your course again? Some slides can be corrupted. I'm assuming that you are only having difficulty with the one project at this time. You could try to import into a new file if you wish:

  1. Open a new, blank presentation in PowerPoint.
  2. Go to the Home tab, click the drop-down arrow beside New Slide, and choose Reuse Slides.
  3. In the Reuse Slides panel, click the Browse button and choose Browse File.
  4. Browse to your original PowerPoint file and click Open.
  5. At the bottom of the Reuse Slides panel, mark the box to Keep source formatting.
  6. Right-click the first slide in the Reuse Slides panel and select Insert All Slides.
  7. Save the new presentation and republish.

Note: Articulate resources, such as audio and video, will need to be inserted again into the new presentation. You may need to export the narration from your original presentation, then import it into the new presentation.
