Will Storyline Honor PPT Audio Trims?

Mar 30, 2023

I am migrating a PPT to Storyline.  It is a complicated PPT with a lot of audio that has been inserted and then trimmed within PPT (using the PPT functions).

When imported into Storyline, the trims from PPT are not recognized in Storyline and all the audio plays simultaneously as opposed to when cued - so, the audio does not stop and start at the PPT designated trim points.

Is there a way to "force" Storyline to honor these audio start and stop points ... to make all the audio edits in Storyline will take forever.  

HELP!  Please and thank you.

Hi Laura,

Thanks for reaching out!

If PowerPoint is not permanently trimming the audio, then these temporary changes might be exclusive to PowerPoint and not something that gets carried over to Storyline 360. Here's a quick look at everything that gets carried over when a PowerPoint file is imported into Storyline 360:
