Reusing Slides without Copying unwanted info
Mar 29, 2011
So I have a content developer who is reusing some slides from an earlier Articulate module we created. But when these slides come into the new presentation, they come with all the old sync animation information and slide properties. Sometimes that works to our benefit, but sometimes not so well.
For instance, we copied one slide that had a set of animations already from the first time we used the graphic. We then added some new graphics and text and animated those. There seems to be a problem syncing the animations now using the sync animations feature - It looks fine while syncing, but won't play back the new sync data.. If we switch to the audio editor, we can see that the animation sync markers are out of order (4,5,1,2,3,), mixed in with the sync markers from the previous PPT. Everything looks good in PPT - animations playing in the correct order, but it's very hard to work with. We have to manually move markers around in audio editor before we can sync with the visual application, as is our preference.
So is there a way to copy slides from one presentation to another without moving the sync and slide properties information with the PPT graphics and animations? And if not, is there a way to refresh the information so the sync behaves normally with new animations?
