alignment issues from Power point to Preview


I am having issues when I review my Power Point work in the Articulate Preview. 

My course offers a number of buttons for the student to hyperlink to different parts of the presentation. 

These "Buttons" are essentially shape boxes with "no fill" and "no outline"

Everything works great in Power Point, but shifts when I run it in preview.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Chris,

Which version of PowerPoint and Studio ('09 or '13) are you currently using?

In either case, I'd recommend checking the file location of your project, then possibly your DPI settings.

  • Work on your local drive (your C: drive). Working on a network drive or a USB drive can cause erratic behavior, including file corruption, loss of audio, and other unexpected behavior. 
  • You should also make sure the directory path to your project files and your published output is less than 260 characters (for example C:\Articulate).
  • Avoid using special characters, accents or symbols in your file names (this includes spaces and underscores).

Additional information regarding "Naming Files, Paths, and Namespaces" in Windows operating systems can be found in the following Microsoft article.

Please let us know if you check everything above and still see the objects shifting when previewing.
