Very slow drag & drop interaction

I have a drag & drop interaction in my file and when I select that slide to work on it, Storyline responds extremely slowly - 5 seconds between mouse presses, just on this slide. After some searching I found this very old thread suggesting that I may be working with large images and this is causing Storyline to slow up.

So the slide in question has 8 images on it, each about 200 x 150 pixels on the slide. Problem is, they're all from Content Library so they are large file sizes that I can't control.

Is my only option to export, resave as a smaller file and replace, or are there plans to be able to choose large/medium/small images from Content Library?

Hi Christina, 

Thanks for reaching out to share what you are running into with your project.

That is a very old thread and an older version of Storyline, so I'm not confident that you're running into the same issue.
