Hey everyone, I am using a Sony Viao with Win 7 64 4G ram and Powerpoint 2013. I have designed a presentation with six pretty simple slides, just a few fades and that sort of thing. When I open the file it takes for ever to load, and there is a blue x over the second slide, on the lefthand side of the screen where the thumbnails of the slides are. Also when I autoplay the slideshow the animations are jerky. I deleted the slide and the problem went away. I rebuilt the slide and the problem came back. The slide contains six jpeg's and a couple blocks of text, so it should be pretty simple...what should I do to fix this? Thanks!
