Speeding the loading of SL3 slides

Dec 08, 2018

I would like to see if there are any tricks to speed up a Storyline 3 presentation. Not speeding up the audio, but the time to load a slide. On my PC (Intel I7-4790 @3.6 GHz with 32 GB ram) and my laptop (Surface Pro) the loading of slides is several seconds each. Especially on the laptop I turn off all possible background applications but this is still quite slow.

Anything else to improve the speed ?

I did not try the whole course but what i saw was working very well ! but to post you need to have subscription which i do not have and a better line (i live in the sticks) and posting such a big volume is many hours !)

I may do that when i am further along if i ever get to that point :D 

Thanks for the support !

Sorry I was taking some grammatical shortcuts :) 

I thought that when you posted this:

Okay, all published, Philippe. Do you experience an issue with my published output here?"

you had posted on the Articulate web site (I had a brief access to it when i started using StoryLine), but further access required a paid subscription to that portal, which I do not have.

Hi Allan,

As Leslie mentioned in her response to Philippe:

We certainly recommend testing in the course in the environment it was published for. When you view a Storyline course on your local hard drive, you'll encounter security restrictions from the computer, web browser, Flash Player, and network that can cause various features of the course to fail.

It sounds like this may be what you're running into as well, and I recommend trying to publish your course to the intended environment to see how it runs before reaching out.

Also, with a course that size, it may be better to connect with our support team and share your file there. We're happy to take a look!
