Can you post a screen capture of your timeline to this forum?
It's not clear from your description what's going on.
Meantime, if you click and drag over this blank area of your timeline (to snag any stray clips) and then press Delete, does this blank area delete? It's possible that, while creating your slideshow, you created fragments of clips that are now floating out beyond your timeline.
Hello, and thanks for reply. Am attaching screenshot. Although everything to the left of my first slide is blank, I can’t seem to find a way to get rid of it. Tried click and drag, select and delete, trimming, etc. but still there. Any ideas most welcome.
Hope this helps.
The screen shot didn't show up. Can you try again?
Also, what makes you think that area is blank?
As Bill S. mentioned, the screencap did not attach. This Tips & Tricks Article might be helpful: http://forums.adobe.com/message/2643538#2643538
If you are accessing the forums via e-mail, you will have much better luck, by accessing via a Web browser. Also, I would attach a PNG, or JPEG, as many other formats of Images are not recognized.
