You may find that lines or arrows in your PowerPoint 2010 presentations have rounded caps and joints when previewed or published with Presenter '09, even if you have specified flat or mitered.

This is a known issue. You can correct it in the following manner:

  1. Right-click the line or arrow, and select Format Shape.
  2. Select the 3-D Rotation tab on the left side of the window.
  3. Subtract one-tenth (.1) of a point from the Z Rotation Axis. Here are some examples:
    • If the Z axis is currently 0, change it to 359.9.
    • If the Z axis is currently 90, change it to 89.9.
    • If the Z axis is currently 180, change it to 179.9.
    • If the Z axis is currently 270, change it to 269.9.
  4. Click the Close button.
  5. Republish your presentation.
