Some Links Not Working When Published

Greetings,

I've been pulling my hair out over this one: I have an image of a device for which I'm building training for staff. It is on a master slide. Over several of the buttons I have placed shapes with transparent fills and colored outlines then added links. Several of the shapes link fine after publishing. However, several (always the same ones) do not. After trying and publishing well over a dozen different variations (group, ungroup, bring forward, bring to front, etc.) I finally realized that all the problem shapes were custom, either predefined shapes I'd edited the points on or freeform from the start). So I converted those to .png images and linked those instead. Voila! Apparently, Presenter can't preserve the links in the custom shapes.
