1st bullet disappearing

I'm having the oddest problem.  I have a rather large presentation, and when I published I found that the first bullet on about half of the slides isn't visible.  Not the entire line - just the bullet. 

I was having other problems with the presentation (it's 148 slides with 38 slide masters so it's a beast), but I fixed all of those, and now the only problem is a missing bullet on some of the slides.

Has anyone ever seen this before?

Many thanks,

That happens to me all the time!

If the first line of text (in the text box) includes a bullet, the bullet will always disappear when you publish. It's an easy fix if you put a return before the bullet, it now is technically the second line of text, and the bullet will appear. 

Hope that's helpful in the future!
