HTML5, Themes and screen loading times


Whilst creating solutions using storyline, we have discovered a curious bug.

If a theme is added to the story file - which includes an image, it seriously slows down the screen loading time, as though it is loading the image for every screen rather than caching it/re-using it, like it does if you add the image directly to the master slide.

It was taking up to 10 seconds to load a screen when using a theme, whilst it took 2 seconds, when using an image on the master slide.

Has anyone else come across this problem? And is it something storyline developers are working on?

We have a whole raft of previously published courses we're going to have to apply the fix to, but if it is a known issue and is going to be fixed, we could hold off on this time consuming job.

Kind regards,
