Presentation Options > Publish Options display setting timing
Sep 28, 2013
I have inherited a PowerPoint Presenter file where I have made some minor changes. There are no animiations or audio in the PowerPoint file on any slide; however, I noticed that the file (and the published version in our LMS!) has slide timings that are all over the map... some being more than 30 seconds, with others of varying lengths over 15 seconds. I see no need at all for these varying and long slide display times (neither does the requestor), but when I tried setting "Slides without audio or animation display for" 2 seconds, or 3 seconds, or 5 seconds, nothing happens. When I created a small test file of generic information, I can adjust slide display times just fine, so I know how to make this adjustment. But I cannot adjust slide display timing for the file I have inherited. How can I get slide display times down to 2 or 3 seconds? These odd timings are present whether or not I have the seekbar checked or whether I have the slide transitions set for user or automatic. What am I doing incorrectly or missing?
