Why are certain slides hidden when not hidden in Properties?

Nov 24, 2012

There are certain slides hidden in the Navigation menu, though they are not hidden in the Presenter Slide Properties.

Hi Blesy,

Thanks for getting back to me! The latest activity on the case was from John on 11/26/2012 at 9:02 AM. You might want to check and make sure that the email didn't go into a spam folder. I'll provide the information he sent you in this thread, but if you're able to locate the message he sent, you can respond with any updates to that message and it will update your case automatically. 

Here's the information:

Child slides will inherit the "hidden" value of their parent slide in Slide properties. So slides on level 2 will be set to hidden if their parent slide (level 1 slide that immediately precedes the level 2 slides) is set to hidden. 
To avoid issues with setting levels and using hidden slides, I would recommend doing the following general steps: 

1) If you have any slides hidden, un-hide them first. 
2) Set the proper levels to all your slides taking note that child slides will inherit the parent's hidden setting. 
3) Set the slides to be hidden in navigation only after all slides have the proper levels.
