Drastically shorten the timeline with Left Arrow key after PowerPoint import

Apr 14, 2021

I just wanted to share this quick tip after I import a wonky PowerPoint or Presenter deck into Articulate360 - the timeline was very long at 6,500 seconds.

I found out that you can tap the Left Arrow key on the keyboard as you drag it smaller. Saves you a lot of mouse work and prevents RSI.

It seems not to work when all objects are extended to End of Timeline, but if you just have the slide duration at this length, the tip works.


This little gem is actually hiding in plain sight in the manual, but who reads these nowadays ;)
