When publishing a Presenter '09 presentation to Word, you may find that non-English text, such as Chinese characters, display as question marks in the resulting Word document.

This is a known issue. To work around this behavior, add one-tenth (0.1) of a point to the 3-D Rotation Z Axis for the text box that contains the non-English characters in PowerPoint (as shown below). Or, use this Optimize macro to quickly and automatically modify the Z Axis for all text boxes in your presentation. Then republish your presentation to Word.

Note: The Optimize macro is not officially supported by Articulate.
