Q.  Are there any limitations on Jigsaw Presentation Uploads or Conversions?

A.  The following are new Jigsaw Presentation Upload/Conversion Limitations:

  • Maximum File Size:  150 MB for the presentations and 2Gb for other asset types
  • Maximum # of Slides:  250 Slides
  • No Embedded Video
  • No Embedded Audio

Q.  Can I embed videos into my presentation?

A.  You cannot EMBED Videos (files, YouTube, etc.) into your Presentation.  Please use Pane 1 (upload directly into your Asset Library) or use Screen Sharing to show videos during your session.

Q.  Can I add timed animations/transitions to my presentation?

A.  Having timed animations/transitions or a timed presentation will not work and can cause problems when presenting in a session, within Jigsaw.

Q.  Why is my presentation not converting?

A.  Two of the most common reasons a presentation fails to convert is an embedded font or a proprietary font. 

Q.  Is there a limit on the number of images I can add to a Session or a Breakout Room?

A.  Yes.  There is a limit of 50 images that can be added to a single Session or Breakout Room.  If you attempt to upload more than 50, none of the images will be added.
