File size in Storyline 360 is very large
Mar 12, 2018
I have a story that has 2 scenes in it. One scene is basically a pretest and the next scene is the course itself which contains many video files. I want to make a separate post test. So I opened my story, deleted the scene that contains all the video files and did a "save as" to keep just the pre-test which I am now going to use as a post-test. However the file size for the now post-test is just about the same size as the original lesson (225,473Kb vs. 224,397Kb) even though most of the lesson has been deleted. If I create a new lesson and import the question bank to make the post-test, the file size is much smaller and the size I would expect it to be (7000 Kb). The reason I am not using this method (because it is the easier method I think) is because I have found when I import a question bank into a story, the formatting of the questions is all messed up. Multiple choice questions do not have the A, B, C, D choices in order, true/False questions get out of order, the question itself runs off the screen.
It seems as though the scene I delete only gets "hidden" and not really deleted. Does anyone know how to overcome this problem?
