Slide Properties branching being ignored


I have a 133 slides in my PowerPoint presentation.  Through Slide Properties I have set up a number of different branches through the presentation. 

When I publish the branching is ignored and the Next button goes through as a linear progression ignoring my branches.  Any suggests why the branching is being ignored?

Hi Michele! Welcome to E-Learning Heroes.

Would you happen to have your navigation set to restricted? If you set the navigation to Restricted in your player template, note that branching via Slide Properties will not work.  Please take a look at this knowledge base article for more information. 

Let us know if this doesn't resolve the issue.

After many different publishes and trial and errors I worked out that the Player Template I was using did not always honour the branching properties.  This was a free Player Template I had downloaded from this site!

Many hours wasted trying to resolve the issue, however it was an easy fix of chaning to a standard skin based on the Corporate Communications Player Template.
