Adobe Presenter doesn't support Images in the CMYK color space in  PPT files. If such images are used in the PPT file, they sometimes aren't visible in the published presentation.

CMYK images are supported

Save the image file in the RGB color space, reinsert it in the presentation and publish. 

5

For some cases, text inside textbox/placeholder overflows to next line in published output. This issue can be caused by not honoring kerning effects for some sans-serif fonts like Times new Roman, Georgia, and so on.

In case text overflows to the next line in the published output:

  • Simply increase the width of the textbox/placeholder in the presentation slide.
  • Alternatively, use the add 1% shadow workaround.

Workarounds

Applying 1 percent shadow

Applying 1% shadow workaround is used for any shape/textbox where you are seeing a difference between PowerPoint and Presenter's output.

Note: Applying this workaround causes loss of color animations. If your shape does not have color animation, you can apply 1 % shadow on the shape.

Applying 1 percent shadow
Applying 1 percent shadow

A 1 % shadow forces Presenter to rasterize the shape using PowerPoint VBA APIs. The look of the shape is the same as it is in PowerPoint.

The drawback of this approach is:

  • All color animations on the shape are lost because Presenter does not support color changing animation on images. However, 1 % shadow does not change any display behavior of the shape in PowerPoint.
  • It does not work when a PPTX file is uploaded on Adobe Connect using the browser directly (and not through Adobe Connect stand-alone add-in). So when you want to use this workaround on Adobe Connect:
    • Make sure you are using AdobeConnect stand-alone add-in
    • Publish the PPTX locally, and then upload the published output on Adobe Connect.
