I have written text with two colors (one narrative in black text, one in blue) in a single text box in several slides. The text looks as I would like it to appear in its raw form but displays as all black text in its published form. 1) What is happening here? 2) How can I fix it or get it to display as I intended it to? (This used to work just fine in earlier versions.)
This is weird, should be possible to have two colors for fonts in a Text Caption. Could you post a screenshot, using the small still camera icon in the toolbar?
Can you also check your version: it should be 18.104.22.1684 If that is not the case, try installing the patch, use Help, Updates,
