Storyline 3 running slowly - mystery solved!

Hi Everyone,

I thought I had a problem with Storyline 3 because some pages I was working on were processing soooo slowly. I checked the forums and reinstalled my software, but the problem persisted.

Finally, I found that I had some background images that were almost 5MB in size! I didn't realise they were this large. I reduced the size and re-imported them into my Storyline master pages and viola! everything is moving quickly again.

Just put this under "traps for young players". I hope it helps.

Hi Erin,

Thanks for reaching out and letting us know that you're running into a similar problem.

I'm curious if the issue happens in any course you are working on or just this particular one?

If you cannot re-create the issue in a new course, I would advise to import the file into a new one and proceed.

If you're still running into slowness, then 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.
