    HUGE file sizes

    Debby_Paulson
      I have been having problems with huge file sizes. I am trying some different things, and my latest is having ONE blank screen in the slide show...my file size for this one slide (with NOTHING ON IT) is 30.9 MB (32,473,088 bytes)!! We just reloaded Cap today due to other problems..but there is something I am missing!!
      Help??

          View your Background Image Library to see if you can delete any. I've found that if I've deleted quite a few unnecessary slides, the background images seem to stay.

            How did you create this file? It won't be that big unless you made it from
            another file and deleted all the slides. This version of Captivate does not
            clean out deleted items from a file. Best way to shrink your file is to
            copy/paste it into a new *blank* file.
