publishing to "slide only" view cuts off part of presentation

I've published this course with side nav for demo purposes.  But now i try to publish as "slide only" view and part of the presentation gets cut off like there is room for the leftside nav, but the course is centered for slide only view.  Every slide in the course is formatted like the pic below.  I can't figure out why this is happening.  Any ideas?

Yes.  they are set correctly.  i've published over 100 courses and this is the first time i've seen this.  It looks fine with left side nav enabled.  but when i remove that and set it for slide only view, it centers the slide, but cuts off the section where the left side nav would be.  I tried creating a new player template but still the same results.  very strange.

in the slide properties, i had a few slides that were set for standard view and some for slide only view and i guess that was the problem.  Just go into the slide props and change the view to clear.  this will reset all the slides and allow you to publish with your template settings.  If you right-click on "Change View" then select "change view to" you can then select "clear" - this will reset for all slides. Hope this helps.
