Hyperlink images move behind video on open/close of PowerPoint file

Jul 11, 2016

I am using Articulate Presenter '13 on trial right now. I have added videos using the "Add Slide Video from File..." option. I then added images on the slides, and added hyperlinks to the images to link to different slides within the same file. The links all work fine when the file is published. The issue is when I close the file in PowerPoint and then re-open it, all of these links that are on slides with videos are behind the video; the videos have become the front object. So in order to publish again and have all the hyperlinks work, I have to go to each slide with a video, right-click on the video, and select "Send to Back -> Send to Back". Then the images with hyperlinks show in front of the video again.

We do not see this issue with other products (such as i-Spring Suite), so it appears to be an Articulate Presenter issue,  not PowerPoint.

Any thoughts/suggestions?

Hi Corey,

Thanks for sharing those steps here, and I see the same behavior on one of my sample files. I'm taking a further look to see if this is something our QA team is aware of, otherwise I'll report it to t hem. I'll include this discussion so that once there is any additional information to share we can update you here, but I don't have a time frame to offer.
