Hi DM,

I haven't seen a limit to the slides, layers, or triggers - so if something isn't working, I'd look to confirm first that you're following along with the guidelines here for working on your .story files.  Did you click to duplicate the layer or copy it? If the latter, than you'd need to paste it as well.

Hi Ashley - thanks for responding so quickly!  Yep, checked the guidelines and I always work from my hard drive and avoid special characters.  Since posting my question, I was able to duplicate the layer I was working on.  I wonder if Storyline simply froze when I tried the first time and that's why it didn't respond when I tried to copy/paste or duplicate the layer?

Happy to hear it DM and it's possible that Storyline locked up for a minute or the system froze as a whole? You'll want to make sure you're saving regularly or if you're using Storyline 2 enable the auto recovery feature so that if something happens and Storyline crashes you won't lose all your files.
