Quizmaker answers jitter/move on screen when highlighted and text does not wrap

May 11, 2016

Ok, this is a bit weird.  I downloaded the chalkboard quiz template to try to spice up my quizzes.  I now notice that when I hover over an answer, the answer is highlighted and gets "jittery", where the vertical position of the answer changes up / down about 1/2 line width.  Additionally, if the answer is longer than 1 line, the wrapped portion of the answer disappears when it is highlighted.  I have tried playing with the text box sizes, font sizes, and alignment properties, but can't seem to find the right combination to solve this issue.  Note that this does not happen on all slide.

I did import questions rather than create them from scratch, so I don't know if this contributes to the problem.  Anyone seen this "jitteriness" on highlighted answers before?

Just an update. It appears as if the text box used when highlighting the text is a different size / placement than the text box used for the normal text.  Regardless, I recreated each question from scratch and the created questions seem ok.  I am going to chalk this up to a problem with importing questions.  Won't try that again!

I know this is an old post, but I am having the same exact issue.  I did not import my questions, but I did copy and paste them.  All of the answers on all of the questions move when I hover, but there are some that wrap and move in the same jittery fashion described above.  I've tried to increase the text box height and center the text so when it wraps it doesn't change text box size, but it still behaves in the same way.

Hello Carla!

Thank you for sharing your project! I've opened your project and noticed some of the answer choices moving as well. I specifically looked at Slide 1.7 and saw the hover state for Initial upon hire and every six months, and Initial upon hire only was significantly smaller than the Normal state for each of those answer choices. 

I changed the size of the text box to match the Normal state, and that did the trick. Here's a 2-minute demo of my testing. Let me know if you have additional questions!
