Thanks Michael.  Did you have to get a 'super-powered' machine to run them both effectively?  What are the tech specs on your machine?

I just have a 'run-of-the-mill' laptop with Windows 7 Premium, Intel Core I7, 8GB RAM. I often work with large Storyline files (>300 MB) and have no real complains.

Hi Paula

I also run both simultaneously with no performance issues.  PC is an i5 (overclocked to 3.4GHz), 8Gb, SSD, Win 7 Pro 64bit with a Radeon HD 6870 card.  Laptop is similarly specced but with an i7 Ivy Bridge processor.  The former is very capable on a day-to-day basis but the laptop is super fast.

One thing I learned a couple of years ago is that working with lots of big image files inside Storyline or Presenter can really bring things to an unbearable halt, e g large background images + multiple characters + other images on multiple slides.  This is why I complete 95% of image editing in other tools before compressing and bringing into a course.

Have you any machines to test both on?
