Published course fonts are bold when PPTX fonts on slides are not

Jan 15, 2013

There are a few slides and text boxes where published fonts are not bold. But the majority of all published text are, and I can't find a way to get rid of the bold. Is there any way to remove the hidden bold formatting? I think it might be due to the underlying "theme" that was applied when I brought the file into the 2010 version.

I am using Articulate Presenter '09, V6.3.1103.112 Pro in MS Office Professional Plus 2010 (PPTX V14). with a standard presentation format we created with MS Office/PPT 2003 and brought into PPT 2010.

Any suggestions?

Hi Jeanne. Welcome to E-Learning Heroes!

How are you viewing the presentation when the fonts are showing up as bold? Is this happening when you preview the content, or after it's been published? If you're viewing it after publishing, is the content uploaded to a web server or LMS?

If the content is uploaded to a server, are you able to share a link to the published content, so I can take a look?

they are displaying bold in Preview and in published course. But the "Bold" indicator is off on the selected text in PPT Font ribbon. On some slides, I have "Bolded" selected text, yet the published results show all text in the text box uniformly bold.

I am viewing course from a server, not yet a web server. I am sorry but I can't share a link to anything behind our firewall.

I didn't have this issue with the slide content when using MS Office 2003. But now courses that I pull into PPT2010 appear to be picking up a "theme" which is displaying this bold formatting when I publish, but not in PPT. Any other reports like this?

Hi Jeanne,

Thanks for getting back to me! Sure, if you'd like, you can remove any of the confidential information and share the PPT here, but I won't be able to do much testing without the actual Presenter Package. If you'd like, you're welcome to send it to us privately. We keep any files sent to us through that form confidential, but if needed we'd be happy to sign a disclosure.
