Labels in Slide Master don't show up when I publish

This is only my second Articulate presentation, so bear with me!

On the Slide Master Review, I have the 3-tab folder template. The template is saved as one grouped object. On each tab are a textbox with the title and a transparent shape that is a hyperlink. The hyperlink is on top of the textbox.

When I make the slides, the text and hyperlink show, but in the navigation bar on the left side of the screen, the titles don't show at all. When I published the presentation, the textboxes don't show but the hyperlinks work.

What could I be doing wrong? All thoughts are appreciated. Thanks!

Hi Pamela

What version of powerpoint are you using? I recently switched to 2010 and have found some of my text boxes or shapes with text have displayed strangely in the published output. I cut and pasted them as images and that seemed to get them displaying properly, perhaps a similar work around will work for you.

For the titles that aren't displaying at all, is it just showing Slide 1, Slide 2 etc? If you are using a template from here you may find that the slide titles have actually been moved to just above the slide out of view. If you zoom out you will see them and be able to fill them in. Alternatively in Slide Properties on the Articulate Tab you can name the slides how you want them to appear in the navigation bar.

Here's the screenshot of what it looks like when I'm making the slides. Note that the labels on the tabs are showing in the main screen (and editable), but in the nav bar on the left, they don't show.

Here's these screen shot of the slide master. In this one, both the label on the tab and the transparent shape that contains the hyperlink are present and editable.

Finally, here's the screenshot from the articulate presentation. The text labels on the file tabs are missing, but the hyperlinks work.

Thank you so much for taking the time to help me figure this out. And a HUGE thank you to everyone who shared this template and showed me how to texturize the template and make it my "own".
