Fly in animation not lining up when published


I'm looking for a work around for this problem. I have 3 objects that are "flying in" from either the top or the bottom. I have them lined up perfectly when they land when viewed in powerpoint. When I publish 2 of them are off.

I need this to work as a powerpoint as well as a published presenter file, so I can't just change it in powerpoint to accommodate the published file.

Any suggestions?

Hi Rebecca,

The "Fly in" PowerPoint animations are supported in Presenter, so I'm not sure why they'd be off while viewing the published course. 

Out of curiosity, how are you viewing the published course? Try to make sure you're not viewing the local output files, as this can cause some issues with presentations. If you view a published Presenter '09 presentation on your local hard drive or send it to someone else to view on their local hard drive, you'll encounter security restrictions from the computer, web browser, Flash Player, and network that'll cause various features of your content to fail.

To properly test your published content and share it with others, upload it to the environment for which it was published. Please review the following article for details:
Another thing that may be causing issues with the rendering of the animations is the DPI setting on your machine. Articulate Studio '09 is only supported with a system DPI setting of 96. If you're using a DPI setting other than 96, you'll encounter erratic behavior in the desktop applications and the published output. The following list provides some examples of unexpected behavior that you may encounter: 
*  Elements of the application appear misplaced or distorted.
*  When previewing, content is distorted.
*  The published output is distorted or doesn't display correctly.
*  Annotations are misplaced.
*  Lengthy slide notes won't scroll when recording narration.
*  Your logo doesn't display correctly.
To resolve these issues, change your system's DPI to 96. Here's how:

Hi Christine,

Thanks for working on my issue. I believe, however, that the problem is more basic than the things you are suggesting as I have been publishing this way and testing for a few years.

The actual animation is working okay, except that the location where the final images end up after flying in is slightly off.
