Storyline Timeline Error

Hi, all.

Upon inserting a 300,000KB audio .wav file in a Storyline project, I received an error message from Storyline.

I closed and re-opened the project.

Now, I see a large red X on the timeline for every slide in the same scene (see screenshot below).

Does anyone have any ideas about how to restore the content on the slide timelines?

Thank you.

red x is gone from the timeline.  had to close and reopen storyline deleting slides until the red x didn't show up.  of course we wouldn't save our work so if deleting a slide didn't fix it we would close storyline, reopen and delete a different slide each time till we found the "bad" slide.

To sum up: Narrow it down to the particular scene.  once you know what scene it is, delete a slide from that scene in scene view then try to  open the "problem" scene.  if you still get the red x, close storyline without saving, reopen storyline then delete a different slide.  repeat until you find the one slide that's giving you grief.

Hi Randy,

Thanks for the update and I'm glad you were able to figure this out on your end. As a reminder, you'll also want to confirm that you're following these general guidelines while working in Storyline to prevent odd behavior in the future:

Hope that helps!
