Importing Presenter project with swf embedded

Aug 24, 2013

Hi there,

I am doing a trial of Storyline.  I have LOTS of Presenter PPT projects that contain swf files (some are animations, other are interactive).  When I import them into Storyline the swfs all have a progress bar under them.  The animations play as an animation (some loop and some don't - they should all loop) but the interactive swfs don't work at all.  They have the progress bar underneath but when you click on them nothing happens.

I have tried adding the same swfs into the Storyline "slides" and they work perfectly.  They don't have the progress bar.  As far as I can see, they both look identical in the timeline.

I don't understand why I have not been able to find other questions about this in the forum.

How can I import my projects so that they work correctly?

Hi Jason, 

I know importing from Powerpoint into Storyline is not a one-to-one conversion, but I wouldn't think that would have an impact on your SWF files since your able to insert them individually. Would you be able to submit your files to us so that we could take a look? You'll want to follow these directions to package your Presenter files.
