KB-000219: When I convert my PowerPoint containing charts and tables some of the fonts have a purple shadow surrounding them. How do I stop this from occurring?

When elements created using some PowerPoint add-ins, such as equation editors, are used and then impaticized with Impatica for PowerPoint, the words, equations and symbols may be presented with pink or purple coloring. This effect occurs when the Windows Display Property Effect "Smooth edges of screen fonts" is selected within the Windows "Display Properties".

To avoid this, you can do the following:

Windows 2000:
  1. Right-click on a blank area on your Desktop.
  2. Choose Properties.
  3. Click the Effects tab.
  4. Uncheck Smooth edges of screen fonts.
  5. Reconvert your presentation and verify that all of the elements of your presentation are of the correct color.




Windows XP:

  1. Right-click on a blank area on your Desktop.
  2. Choose Properties.
  3. Click the Appearance tab.
  4. Click on the Effects button.
  5. Uncheck the "Use the following method to smooth edges of screen fonts" option.
  6. Reconvert your presentation and verify that all of the elements of your presentation are of the correct color.
