Trouble getting PowerPoint Page numbers once the course is Published using Articulate Studio 13

We are developing courses using Articulate Presenter Studio 13.  The page numbers  and footers are set up correctly in PowerPoint's Slide Master.  However, when I publish the course using Output Options SCORM1.2, the footers convert but the page number show up as #.  Any ideas how I can remedy this?  I have tried everthing I know within PowerPoint. 

Thank you in advance,

Anne

Hello,

I have tried that (numerous times...in numerous ways). The page number symbol is on the Master slide. The page number shows up in the PowerPoint just fine; however, when the course is published using Articulate Presenter 13 the number reverts back to a pound (#) sign.

Any thoughts?

Hello,

Attached is a published course "shell" template I created using PowerPoint and then published in using Articulate Presenter. You will notice that the page numbers do not translate from the PowerPoint Master slides.

To view this content:
1. Save the attached zip file to your computer.
2. Extract (unzip) the file.
3. Double-click the presentation.html file.

Hello,

For slide numbering, I used in PowerPoint Insert -> Slide Number feature in the Master Slide of my presentation (Powerpoint 2007 and also 2010) . The page number shows up in the PowerPoint just fine; however, when the course is published using Articulate Presenter 13 the number reverts back to <N°> sign (see attached files).

Thank you in advance for your help,

Josiane

Hi Leslie,

Thank you for your response. I use the Insert -> Slide Number feature in the Master Slide of my presentation in Powerpoint 2007.
(see attached files)

I do this without copy the tag and paste into different slides even if this will work in Powerpoint

I don’t understand why ?

I'm having the same issue with Presenter 13. I'm working with a deck that the Master Slide has been changed so much, I think the page numbering is broken. Works ok in PP, but not when published with Presenter. I think the only fix in my case is to create a new Master Slide and then reformat. Not worth the effort for one course.

Thanks!

Thank you Leslie for your help with this. I think I tried every variation possible inserting page numbers with no luck. I retried again with the steps you posted and now it works. Weird! 

I know you're not supporting PowerPoint, but I do have a quick PP question. Why are you able to edit pages numbers and footers on the main slides when they were created on the master slide?

Thanks again for your help.
