Timeline length

Hi, 
I'm using articulate storyline and i have a small problem of timeline length. It automatically after adding an audio sets to a big value such as 500sec and so for each slide i have to drag the line to adjust the display time. but this is taking me in total too much time. Is there a method to set the timeline for each slide manually?
I would really appreciate your answers and your help.

Best Tea.

Hi Tea

Sounds like there might be something weird going on. The timeline shouldn't behave the way you describe. Can you try running through these steps and see if it resolves the issue? If not, we'd be happy to take a closer look at this. Please submit a case using the link below so our support team can assist you further:

I came across the same problem when embedding videos. The timeline was as long as several thousand seconds which took minutes to drag back to .25 seconds. Tea Tavanxhiu's solution seems to work when embedding new content. If you embed it while in the states tab it goes to a default of 5 seconds. But I already had 100's of videos embedded when I realized the problem.The solution to the dragging problem is to start dragging and then press the left back arrow on  your keyboard. This will jump you to the beginning of the timeline. Then put your mousepoint on one second and release the mouse button. Viola! You just saved agonizing time scrolling all day. Hope this helps others!
