Help -- SL taking up to 90 secs to save each time!

Jun 23, 2014

I'm working in a SL file that's currently 45MB and it's taking upwards of 90 seconds to save each time I hit CTRL+S. That's a really long time, even for a SL file (which has always been slow to save, at least in my experience) and is a significant drain on my productivity. (The alternative of losing my work if SL crashes is an even bigger drain, however.) I'm not running a lot of other programs. I've tried rebooting. Nothing seems to help. I have enough memory. Can anyone help or explain what I can do to improve this? It's becoming a big problem. Thanks in advance.

Hi Laura,

In addition to rebooting and checking that you meet at least the minimum system requirements here, you'll want to ensure that you're following along with the other guidelines detailed here for working with Storyline files:

Next, is this only happening on one .story file or with all your Storyline files? If it's just the one file, you may want to try importing it into a new Storyline project as detailed here. If it's happening across multiple files, I'd suggest conducting the repair of Storyline.
