My slides don't seem to be linking together........


My slides in a Story don't seem to be linking up and can't seem to figure out what the issue is.  After deleting a slide this started occurring. This occurs when I preview the entire project.  I can view the first couple of slides, then can't view the remaining ones.

Maybe there is something obvious I'm overlooking.

Please advise.  Thanks!

Hello John and welcome to E-Learning Heroes. 😊

Thanks for letting us know what you are seeing in your project file. 

With your permission, I'd like to take a look at your project 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.

Hi, John,

Before you take the time to send the file to Leslie, I suggest a quick look at the NEXT triggers. It sound like one of them may have an unassigned NEXT trigger like this: 

That can happen when a slide is hard-coded to jump to a specific slide (instead of just jumping to whatever is the next slide). If that specific slide is deleted, the trigger becomes unassigned.

To fix it, just assign it to jump to the "next" slide. 

If that isn't the issue then, yes, let Leslie and the ever-helpful Articulate staff look at the file.

Thanks Leslie and Judy for your input. 

I just forwarded the project for support.

I did set the trigger to "next slide" and it made no difference.

To clarify, on Preview I can't proceed past the second slide and for some bizarre reason the slides appear out of order along the left column.

I spent a lot of time trying to figure it out and am now officially stumped!....LOL.
