Unable to import PPTX or PPT files into Articulate Storyline


I am running Storyline 360 on my Macbook Pro via Parallels. I am not able to import any PPTX or PPT Files into Storyline. When I attempt to I import a PowerPoint file I receive the following error message "Filed to import PowerPoint presentation. The presentation "the name of the file" could not be imported. Find out why here. 

Is there an update that I can download or another way to import PowerPoints into Storyline?

Hi Anthony, 

Thank you for reaching out! I am sorry about the troubles you are experiencing when importing PPT files into Storyline. 

The error message that appears could be connected to a few different factors. I would recommend checking out this guide and see if these scenarios apply: 

Another thing to check is if you have any PowerPoint add-ins, it may help to temporarily disable them and then try to import the file into Storyline. 

Please keep us posted on this!
