PPT Text Boxes Being Imported as Images

Mar 16, 2021


When I imported a PPT to convert to a StoryLine project, it appears that all the text boxes got converted to images. I recently imported another PowerPoint file w/ no troubles. Any suggestions on how to fix this?

PPT 365, SL 360, Win10 pro

Storyline looks in the PPT XML file and recreates the shapes, texts, etc. Sometimes it can't recreate and the shape gets converted to an image.

This usually happens if one uses the smart objects or perhaps some of the effects in PPT and applies them to a shape. If Storyline can't recreate the object if will convert it to an image.
