Notes on a Quiz Slide

So - I have been combing through the forums for this, and don't seem to see my problem discussed.

I am getting erroneous slide notes on my quiz slides.  They seem to be from other slides in the presentation.  We want the notes tab to be blank for quiz slides.  When I look at the slide in PPT, it just has the "Click to add notes" default text - but when published, is has the notes from another slide in the presentation.

I am about to just type in the title of the Quiz in the notes section so that at least it shows something that makes sense, but thought I would check to see if there was something else I can do to make this work.

Hi Felix -

Unfortunately, I was unable to send in files because it was proprietary (I have to figure out some way of dealing with that - a lot of my issues seem to require sending in the file - but because I am working on proprietary materials, my employer does not want me to send the files - FRUSTRATING!).

The work-around we came up with was entering something on each of those slides in the notes section - even if it was just something like "Quick Check 1" or the title of the slide perhaps.

Not elegant, but seemed to address the issue - and better than notes from another slide showing up. 

It seems like this occurs for us when there are long/large presentations - and perhaps (although I haven't seen this for a while) if we had deleted or moved slides?

Hope that information is helpful!

Hi Brent!

Thank you for your quick response.

I understand your situation since my files are most of the time also strictly confidential. Maybe  I prepare a dummy presentation with Lorem Ipsum texts to get the problem solved.

Meanwhile, I solved the issue by changing the view to "Slide view" before theqQuiz starts and then after the quzi pages back to "standard". 

Then the Notes are not visible, in addition I used your solution and typed something like "Quiz Time" in the notes section.
