No. When you use "Multiple Files" you can show the presentation for 
example in IrfanView. You can move forwards and backwards with the 
for/back arrows of IrfanView and you have all animations of the single 
slide step by step forward and backward! on contextmenu. In browser too 
the animations inside the slide are available via contextmenu. If you 
use one SWF file for the whole presentation this does not work in 
browser and it crashes IrfanView.

Kind regards
