Wrong colour tick in checkboxes


I think I might be going bonkers. 

I am updating a file that has been created by someone else and in all the multiple response questions, the incorrect answer/s tick is white, when it is set to be black.

I've tried manually changing the check colour to black and I've used the format painter from the ones that are black to the one that isn't.  In the states menu, it shows it as black - just when you preview or publish does it turn white.

Is there an easy way to fix this / what am I missing?  Is it some sort of theme?

It obviously works if I delete the checkbox and create a new one for that answer choice (but there are loads of questions and I'd rather not if possible)

Attached story file and slide is published below:


Thanks, it's driving me mad!

PS - just seen on another thread that this might be due to upgrading from SL2 to 360 - this is what I did also.

I had a similar problem.


I created a checkbox with the check colour set to BLACK.  When it published, it appeared as WHITE. I remade it several times and then set the check colour to WHITE and it published as BLACK.

So whatever you want, do the opposite!  Simple ....


Thank you, it worked for me, but not on others. It is clearly a bug in Storyline...
