Urgent Dynamic Visibility Problem

I'm creating a dashboard and everything was going really well. At some point, the things I designated with dynamic visibility just stopped showing up. If I create a component and don't put anything for Display Status, it shows up fine, but appears on all my "pages." If I try and qualify the component so it only appears on one page, it won't show up at all in the SWF.

The weird thing is that if I make a copy of an existing component, it will show up, but only if the dynamic visibility settings aren't changed. If I copy a component that's on page 2 and want it to appear on page 3, it won't do it.

The dashboard has gotten kind of large, and I don't know if that has anything to do with this. All I know is that I've become completely frustrated because I'm two pages into a four page dashboard and can't continue. Nothing new can be created to go on those last two pages.

Can someone help me with this?

Thanks!

    I've had issues with the dynamic visibility as well; seems that after a file has been worked with so much and is so large that that feature doesn't work properly anymore. The only thing I know to do is start from scratch; hopefully by making a "proof" with fewer modifications and steps you won't run into the same issue again.

    Although there is not a "limit" to how complex your dashboard can be, at a certain point performance will be compromised. This same principle is also true for your Excel spreadsheet. I assume that since you are creating a complex multi-page dashboard that the underlying data is also dense and complex. You can either: simplify the data, reducing either its size or the number of formulas/calculations being performed; or simplify the dashboard. Rather than creating one dashboard with several complex layers, you may find creating a parent dashboard that calls multiple external "child" SWF files yields a better performing dashboard. *Caution: parent/child or nested dashboards are more complicated to distribute to viewers, which should be considered depending on your application.
