quiz slides are slow

Jun 10, 2013

When I have a high res image on a slide, the mouse click to highlight is slow, indicating large file size, so I always keep my images small file size.

But I have no images on my quiz slides and they are acting the same. One quiz slide has 7 multiple choice answers and is slow as hell. Any idea why?

Hi Dan,

Hmm - not sure. I can't think of a reason why the choice answers would cause any type of lagging. 

How large is the file itself? Is the project on your local hard drive?

  • Work on your local drive (your C: drive). Working on a network drive or a USB drive can cause erratic behavior, including file corruption, loss of audio, and other unexpected behavior. 
  • You should also make sure the directory path to your project files and your published output is less than 260 characters (for example C:\Articulate).
  • Avoid using special characters, accents or symbols in your file names (this includes spaces and underscores).

Additional information regarding "Naming Files, Paths, and Namespaces" in Windows operating systems can be found in the following Microsoft article.

If the file is local, or you don't see any improvement after moving it to the hard drive, I wonder if there's an issue with the file.

Can you try importing the project into a new project and see if the slides are still slow, please?
