First animation not working and symbols showing up in slide notes
I am having a couple of issues.
#1. My animations are not working correctly when I try to sync. When I click Start Sync, my very first animation comes in automatically (without me clicking). It is also adding an animation. I have a total of 4 animations on the slide (3 Fade in and 1 Fade out). However, in my sync it shows 5 animations. If I initiate the last animation, everything disappears on my screen.
I read a few posts about "on click" animations not working. Why would this change? I've been an Articulate user for several years and have never encountered this before. It does this on EVERY slide. Ugh!
#2. There are strange asian caligraphy-looking characters (see attached image) showing up in the notes section of some of my slides. They only show up in the sync animations view. They do not show up in the outline or normal view. I have a 14 slide PPT. The characters are only showing up on slides 10-14. I have never seen this before and can't find anything in the forum about others experiencing this. I did find one post about some symbols showing up in a published version. I double checked my settings and the recommended fix does not apply.
Thus far, I have reinstalled office (2007) and am up to date on my Articulate updates. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
