Problems importing PowerPoint into Storyline 2 - text boxes, shapes, etc. all have gray fill/shading

I am trying to import slides from PowerPoint into Storyline 2. We were working with a template and everything was working fine. We just updated a few things in the template (not the problem items though) and now all of the text boxes, shapes, and other elements are importing with a dark gray fill, gray shading, etc.  Any suggestions on what is causing this? If we fill in one of the shapes or text boxes with a black fill and then set it to 100% transparency, we can import it without a fill color, but that isn't an ideal solution.

Hi Kelley, 

The import previously worked before you updated the template, and then you changed the template and reimported and it didn't work? Are you able to confirm that you're following the steps here to import? Also can you confirm that you're working on local project files as described here. 

Are you able to share a copy of the .ppt file so that we can see it and try import ourselves?
