We have been using a template for our client which does not contain anything unusual (at least for the slides in question).  When we send the .pptx to our client the text boxes shift to the left and become unreadable.  We have attempted to save the file down to 2003 (.ppt) and I have also loaded the clients printer driver as my default to rule that out as well.  Has anyone had any experience with this?

Windows 7 64
Office 2007

Working in 2007+ with a client using 2003 is always going to be a bad idea.

In this case you have used a layout with multiple text plaeholders which is impossible to create in 2003.

2003 is doing it's best to make sense of it and failing.

If your client is not editing the Powerpoint, have them download the 2007 viewer:

They would need to download the 2010 viewer but it seems likely the client will be editting. The 2007 viewer is really the 2003 viewer in disguise!
