Timeline stuck & zoom dissapearing from timeline
Jan 04, 2017
edit: For clarity
I'm unsure if the two issues are related but they always appear together.
1) The timeline is stuck at double the length of the audio. happens when copying object to a new slide. The timeline auto adjust to the longer length of the slide the object was copied from. Not a big issue as i just move the object on the timeline to fit within the appropriate length however afterwards the timeline gets stuck as if there is an audio track or other non scalable item on the timeline blocking it from getting smaller. If I move the audio on the timeline(slide it to later in the timeline) then try to readjust the length of the timeline it snaps to even longer acting as if the audio is actually twice it's length. also if there are multiple zooms on the affected slide issue 2 appears.
2) using multiple zooms across slide to create transitions the initial zoom disappears from the timeline (but is still there as the second zoom is still named "Zoom 2") occurs when there are 2 zooms on a slide which encounters issue #1.
I've had these issues happen many times in the past and so far there is no way to correct them. Once a slide is affected by this "curruption" the only way to fix it is to delete the affected slide and recreate it.
Issue appears on slide 2.4 of attached story file. I didn't want to par down any of the file to avoid changing any conditions.
