Can N-o-t Get Audio Files to Remain in Presentation File

Postby PresentationKillsMe » Tue Mar 23, 2021 6:01 am

Ok: I set up 28 slides, 14 with audio. I used mp3 files.
Saved the file, closed it, opened it again: ALL were gone.
Spent 80 minutes reformatting my slides as I re-inserted wav files.
Did the first 3 as a test, saved, re-opened and wav files were still in place.
JOY!
So I continued on and did the rest.
Closed the file, re-opened, only the first 3 wav files "took" and stayed put.
I have a major assignment due and am at my wits end with this app. :crazy:
Any help out there?
Please and thanx.

ODP don't embed any media files. For .wav files, you must save as PPT.

Actually, I was able to get it to work by saving as ODP since saving as PPT only kept the first 3 sound files and continually discarded the rest after saving and closing.
