    Slides were reset to "Continue"

    mnealonjr Community Member

      I had a project that was nearly complete. There are about 160 slides with click boxes all over them. I had the navigation finished a few days ago, and I know I saved it periodically while I was working on it...fairly often. It took me 3 days to build this thing. I even did a preview in the browser numerous times and everything was working great.

      So I go to open the project today and ALL of the click boxes were changed from "jump to slide" with the correct slide numbers, to "continue."


      It took me 3 days!!!! And now I have to do it all over again

      Is this an issue anyone else has seen? Is there a way to avoid this in the future? The only thing I can think that might help is to save a few backup copies on external storage or something.


      Thanks in advance for any help you may have

          I have a vague memory about there being some internal limit on the number of interactive objects that a single project file could contain. I know it was somewhere in the hundreds.


          How many click boxes do you estimate you would have in this project?

            Maybe around 700, not sure. It's a BIOS simulation for a laptop. I've made other projects this large and there were no problems, though.

              Well 700 click boxes sounds like too many to me.


              If you don't have a backup version of the project where everything was working, you'll need to set them all up again.  But personally I would be trying to find a way to reduce the number of click boxes.

                I'm about halfway through assigning the click boxes to the proper slides. I started rebuilding it yesterday. From everything I've been reading (I've been trying to find as much information about the limitations of the software), there is no limit on the amount of click boxes allowed, but I'm doing my best to slim the project down anyway. That is not to say that the project may or may not become buggy with so many, but so far I can't find any set limits on the amount of click boxes you can use.


                At least the keybord assignments are all still right, so thats saving me some time


                Thanks for your help.
