What is in the bigger presentations? It sounds like it is taking a long time
to do the pre-load of the presentation. (PPT pre-loads things so that you
can move through the presentation more quickly during edits.)
Could you check a couple of things for me?
First off:: Is Fast Saves on? If so, does turning it off then saving the
presentation(s) under a new name help with the slow loading?
Next: At what point does a presentation move from small to large? (Maybe a
better way to ask is: What is smaller and what size causes the problems?)
Third: Is any of the content linked content that doesn't reside on the local
drive? Or, by chance does the presentation itself not reside on a local
drive? If either of these is the case, does it work better if the content is
on a local drive?
