Time it takes to PUBLISH a SL file? Jul 09, 2015 By Karen Loftus I've got a 19 slide (20 minute or so module) that I am trying to Publish. When I work on short #ELHchallenges they are short and publishing is almost instantaneous. In the case of this file, it just keeps spinning and spinning, and I finally hit cancel in frustration. Short of walking away and doing something else, am I missing something?
