Adobe Presenter not Publishing Slide Theme

I have a slide presentation that I have using a layout theme.  It shows great until I export in Presenter.  Then I just have a white background!  Not sure why it is not exporting.  Help would be greatly appreciated.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

What do you mean by "using a layout theme"? Could you clarify?

I have attached the slide and then the same slide in presenter.  You can see the blue wave at the bottom is missing.

Thank you for your help!

Great, thanks. It looks like the background graphics aren't displaying. Is it slide based on every  layout or just this one particular layout?

It might be that the graphics are CMYK, Presenter doesn't always convert those correctly. Replace them with RGB graphics and see if that helps.

It worked fine on another presentation I did.  The graphic was loaded as a template....  see attached

Still no luck.  Can a reload the template to the document?  Is it not attached for some reason?

Does this happen on the whole presentation or just the one slide?

Whole thing.  Works fine on another one I did which is why I am confused!

Okay. It might be because the background is in the template as a background fill instead of a picture on the slide background. Let me extract the image and put it on your slide master, then see if it works. Hang on...

how can I just change without redoing slides?

Easier for me to do than to explain right this minute. I'll give you the steps later.

Also, you should save as PPTX. That might be part of the problem.

Ah, great!

So here's what I had to do.

A) Get the picture that's embedded in the background so I could reinsert it.

To do this, you'll open the file and save it as a PPTX format. Then you'll make a copy of the file and append .ZIP to the file name and unzip it and extract the images. There are instructions for this at http://echosvoice.com/extract-pictures-video-and-audio-from-your-presentations-in-3-easy-steps/.  

Once you have the image, then you

B)  Put the picture on the slide master instead of embedding it. Here are steps.

1. Open the PPTX
2. Choose Vie | Slide Master
3. Go to the first slide thumbnail, the big one. This is the slide master. (The smaller ones are the slide layouts.)
4. Choose Insert | Picture | From File and insert the background image you extracted.

Now, your image isn't sized properly, so you have to do some additional work.

5. Select the image, and on the Picture Tools Format  tab in the Size group, make the size 10" wide.
6. On the Picture Tools Format tab in the Arrange group, select Align bottom (which aligns the image to the bottom of the slide) and then select Align Center (which aligns it to the center of the slide.
7. Optional step. Use the CROP tool on the Size group and crop the top of the picture to the top edge of the slide.
8. On the Slide Master tab, Close Master View.

Re-save the presentation, making sure to save it as PPTX.

oops, I forgot step 7.5 (before closing slide master)

7.5. Select the picture and on the Picture Tools Format tab, in the Arrange group, choose Send to Back. Or you can use Send Backward. Click it 5 or more times to ensure it goes behind all placeholders on the slide master.

Then you can close Master View.
