If you apply both shadow and bevel formatting to text in PowerPoint 2010 / 2007, you may find that the text formatting does not appear as expected when published with Presenter '09.

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

  1. Right-click the text box, 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.
