Default How to make a trimmed audio file play across slides


I am trying to play part of an audio file at the end of a presentation. I can trim it at the right place, and it will start at the right place as long as I choose "Start Automatically" under Playback. If I choose "Play Across Slides," as I have for the rest of the presentation, the slide will not advance. Any way around this?

Usually when you trim AND play across slides the trim does not work. Is this what you mean, it should still advance.

Try File > Info > Compress Media for a fix but be aware this removes the trimmed portion completely.

Compressing the audio file worked perfectly! I just made a copy of it before I inserted it so I didn't ruin the original, which I used earlier in the presentation. I appreciate the warning. Thanks for the help.
