Acceptable answer coming up as "incorrect" on fill-in-the-blank

Hello everyone,

This forum is always a great help and looks like I need your advice again!

I am setting up a fill-in-the-blank question and have typed all "acceptable answers" in form view. 

All of the acceptable answers are being registered as correct when I test this question, except for one.  I've tried moving that answer around, but it still says it's incorrect when I type it in. 

Any way to fix this? 

Thank you again for your help!

Hi Ashley,

Good call - it does have an apostrophe in it!   It's a very basic question, with one of the answers being "do not," and another one being "don't."   The don't is the one that's not being accepted as a correct answer.

Can the apostrophe be the problem? 

Can't share it at the moment, but may have to get permission in case I can't resolve this..

Thank you!

Hi Anna,

Unfortunately, if you use fill-in-the-blank or text-entry questions with answers that require apostrophes, you may find that the questions are always marked incorrect—even when learners correctly enter answers with apostrophes.

This is a known issue. It'll be fixed in a forthcoming software update for Articulate Storyline. Enable the Check for updates at startup feature to be notified when new updates are available.
