Has anyone created a course over 500 slides?
Has anyone created a course over 500 slides in length with no technical problems?
I am creating a course with lots of branching scenarios and so far having completed only 3 out of 12 modules I am already at slide 161! I also have Articulate Interactions, XML image components and Flash video within my course.
I noticed at about 150 slides that PowerPoint began to slow down. And now at slide 161 PowerPoint is beginning to 'stop working' and keeps asking me whether I want to disable the 'add-in' i.e. Articulate.
Bearing in mind I have 9 modules to go and the client wants all the modules in one course - I'm getting rather concerned about what's going on.
To try and reduce the size of my presentation file I always optimize all images and group as many slide objects as I can.
Can anyone give me reassurance that PowerPoint can handle what I need to do (expected total slide count at around 600) or give me any tips on how to reduce the presentation file any further?
