I need help importing my Powerpoint into Storyline 3

Hello, I have tried everything to import my Powerpoint into Storyline 3. I am currently working on Powerpoint 2016 and I am trying to import a Powerpoint that I created into Storyline 3. I have adjusted the size, taken out animations and grouped the characters to the background and still no characters, or animations will import into Storyline3. I do not know what to do at this point. Please help.

Hello, sorry you are having trouble. 

In regard to characters grouped to the background, I think you may want to make sure your characters/images are separated free so they come in, but I bet you tried that. 

What I have done is brought in small groups of slides at a time, have you tried that vs. the whole PPT?  It seems to import more consistently and quicker by doing smaller batches.

Also, you may have seen these articles, but just in case:

Thanks for reaching out and sharing what you are running into with your import.

It looks like Jeff has shared some great tips and resources. With your permission, I'd like to take a look at your PowerPoint file to investigate what's happening. You can share it publicly here, or send it to me privately by uploading it here. I'll delete it when I'm done troubleshooting.
